There are only a few days left to register for The Grocer’s exclusive webinar on the future of the tobacco category.
This key session, on the major changes affecting the biggest category in fmcg, takes place on Tuesday 5 May. Attendees have until 11am on the day to register.
The event takes place just two weeks before the ban on menthol and other flavoured tobacco products comes into force on 20 May, marking one of the biggest legislative changes the category has ever seen.
The Grocer, along with sister brands Convenience Store and Forecourt Trader, has put together an expert panel to discuss the changes in range needed to meet modern shopper needs.
As well as offering unique insight into how businesses are preparing for the ban, there’s also the chance to submit your question to the panel when you register here.
So, who will be discussing the sugar levy and its implications for the industry with the host, Convenience Store editor David Rees?
