The supplier said each Zig-Zag household lighter range uses shelf-ready packaging to increase visibility and retailers should dual-site each range with related categories to drive sales and encourage impulse purchases.

Zig-Zag Utility Lighters, Kitchen Lighters are available in packs of 12, with Candle Lighters available in packs of 18. Each lighter is refillable.

Gavin Anderson, general sales manager at Republic Technologies, said: “The UK candle lighters market is currently worth £432,000 and following the recent withdrawal of the biggest supplier of candle lighters, there’s a gap in the market for retailers to invest in a proven supplier of quality lighters to bring sales and growth to the category.

“The latest new products from the Zig-Zag brand are perfectly place to build on the success of the category, with the utilities lighter market growing 4% year on year, giving retailers an opportunity to create an impactful display and drive sales within the category.”

Zig-Zag Candle Lighters: Uses a piezo ignition and has a child resistant button and is made from a thermoplastic to allow the lighters to be thin. Each lighter is refillable, offering a capacity of 400 lights per fill.
