Harrow and goodbye (to your gantry)

Tobacco gantry removal

JTI has removed its tobacco gantries from three retailers convicted of selling illegal tobacco products.

The removal of gantries from Kenton Superstores in Harrow, NJ Food & Wine in Staines, and KS News (pictured) in Bilston takes the total number of gantries removed by JTI to 43.

The tobacco product manufacturer also called on other companies supplying these stores to review their relationships and consider if they want to continue doing business with them.

For more information on the illicit tobacco trade, retailers can visit the JTI website, which features an easy-to-use anonymous reporting tool, as well information on the scale of the problem and its implications.

Any retailer aware of, or who suspects that illicit tobacco is being sold, should report this criminal activity via the JTI website, or to Trading Standards (03454 04 05 06), HM Revenue & Customs’ Fraud Hotline (0800 788 887) or Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).
