PML Quotas – As we are all aware the government excise based increases will be occurring in September, therefore PML will have quotas in place on both FMC and RYO products.
The quotas for both FMC and RYO are based on stock purchased between 22nd June 2020 – 10th July 2020. Please note however that there has been a slight increase on the RYO quotas for A and B outlets as per the below:
A grade – Additional 2 weeks (included in quota)
B grade – Additional 1 week (included in quota)
These quotas will be effective, and visible on the PML portal, from 20th July 2020 – 28th August 2020 (inclusive).
In addition to the above, and to support the recent changes to their distribution network, PML have allowed an additional week for outlets that have a 48 hour delivery window with one order on a Friday per week and an additional 3 days for outlets that order twice weekly on Fridays with a 48 hour window.
Promotions for next week can be found under promotions. There are no changes from this week.
To further enhance the quality and smoking experience of JPS, Imperial Brands proudly announces the introduction of + Firm Touch Filter on the JPS core range of 20s, 25s, 30s & 40s*
JPS Menthol + Firm Touch Filter 20s is the first variant to commence flowing through now. The remaining variants will flow through to the market soon.
No changes to barcodes, pack or carton sizes.
* +Firm Touch Filter is not featured on JPS Superkings, JPS + Crushball and JPS 93mm.
There is a invoice pricing issue with the new Dunhill 20s. BATA have been invoicing the product at $332.87 incl. GST. The original price provided to TSG was $323.60.
This dearer price, $332.87, is the correct price. BATA will arrange back payment from their end.
New release – Ventti Menthol extra strength filters. These have a high content of Menthol for an extra fresh flavour.
