Japan to get Camel-brand heat-not-burn cigarettes

Japan Tobacco Inc. said Tuesday it will begin selling two heat-not-burn traditional cigarette styles under the Camel brand on Jan. 20.

The Ploom S product is being sold as Camel Regular and Camel Menthol, expanding the flavoring options for Ploom S to six in the Japanese market.

“We are pleased to announce the launch of our first-ever Camel brand tobacco stick products,” said Toru Takahashi, the vice president of the manufacturer’s marketing group product and brand division.

“Since its first launch in the United States in 1913, Camel brand has been well-received by consumers in over 100 markets all around the world, evolving over time but always preserving its high brand equity.”

Japan Tobacco markets Ploom S as producing “less than 5% of the odor of traditional cigarettes, as well achieving more than 90% reduction in the levels of measured potentially harmful constituents.”
