Tobacco Business

Term Definition
Reduced-Risk Products (RRP) Reduced-Risk Products (RRP) are those with the potential to reduce the risks associated with smoking and include E-Vapor (E-cigarettes) and T-Vapor (Tobacco Vapor) products.
At the JT Group, we are committed to developing, testing and bringing to market these new and innovative products for sustainable growth.
E-Vapor (E-cigarettes) E-vapor products are electronic devices that typically contain nicotine-based liquid. The liquid is heated electronically and released as a vapor and there is no combustion involved. "Logic" is our flagship e-cigarette brand.
T-Vapor (Tobacco vapor) T-vapor products, such as Tobacco-Infused Vapor and Heated Tobacco, contain tobacco and create a tobacco-enriched vapor that can be inhaled. Importantly, the tobacco is not combusted during the use of such products.
Tobacco-Infused Vapor Tobacco-Infused Vapor products do not involve combustion or direct heating of the tobacco. Our Tobacco-Infused Vapor product, Ploom TECH, has low-temperature heating technology, which enables the products to offer a clear taste with no smoke, smoke smell or ash and no negative impact on the surrounding air quality.
Heated Tobacco Heated Tobacco products involve direct heating of the tobacco but not combustion. They are more similar to conventional cigarettes and can offer a rich tobacco flavor with less smell and no ash.
