Imperial Tobacco has set an April launch date for JPS Players Easy Rolling Tobacco, a new line of roll-your-own tobacco.

The supplier said JPS Players Easy Rolling Tobacco has a more vibrant colour and lower levels of moisture, making it easier to handle and roll.

It will be available to buy from 1 April in 30g and 50g formats, with respective RRPs of £11.95 and £19.60.

Chris Street, market manager for the UK at Imperial Tobacco, said: “Our research shows that consumers remain full focused on seeking out the best value from the tobacco products they buy. “This is especially true within the growing RYO segment, with the Economy sector accounting for just shy of half the market at 49.87%.
