JTI is the leading cigarette supplier in Sweden with renowned international brands such as Camel and Winston, as well as classic Swedish brands like Blend and Level. We are one of the leading producers on the Swedish snus market, with traditional Swedish snus sold under the brands Gustavus and LD.
JTIs came to Sweden in 2007, when Gallaher became part of JTI.

Tobacco production in Sweden was formerly organized under Svenska Tobaks AB, which gained control of all domestic tobacco industries in 1915. However, our local tobacco heritage stretches all the way back to 1890 when our oldest brand, Commerce, was launched.
