Our packaging is changing

The Government of Canada has introduced the Tobacco Products Regulations (Plain and Standardized Appearance) which is to come into effect later this year. This will impact Player's packaging.

John Player Plus

In order to comply with the plain packaging regulations, some basic changes are being made to the JOHN PLAYER PLUS products.

john-player-plus pack

Those who enjoy John Player Plus cigarettes will be happy to know that the pack shape and great taste you know and enjoy will not be changing once the plain packaging regulations come into effect in Canada. Plus, a newly-redesigned FlowFilterPlus™ will also be introduced.

John Player Plus sticks

What will be changing is simply the packaging of the products and the name of one John Player Plus variant. John Player Plus Charcoal Filter will now be called John Player Plus X-Smooth. Be sure to take note of this new name when making your purchase.

Following the implementation of the plain packaging regulations that impose a plain and standardized cigarette packaging throughout Canada, all John Player Plus packaging will feature one single colour and other standardized characteristics, but rest assured that the quality of the product you enjoy will always remain the same.
