Seminar | Capsule cigarettes: How could product innovation undermine the 2025 goal?

Also available to view live via the internet. See details below.


Flavour capsule cigarette variants (FCVs) allow users to customise their smoking experience and reduce the harshness of smoking. FCVs have shown rapid growth in New Zealand, but appeal more to susceptible non-smokers than to smokers and appear to represent a new gateway product. Countries introducing standardised packaging policies should ensure they regulate the design of tobacco products as well as the packaging used to contain these.


Professor Janet Hoek has recently joined the Department of Public Health in Wellington and has a long-standing interest in smoke-free policies. With Richard Edwards and Anaru Waa, she is co-director of ASPIRE2025.
