Nicotine Dialogue: Spotlight On the Start and End of the Line: Moderated by Jim Solyst, Vice President, Federal Regulatory Affairs at Swedish Match N.A. - A lot of the focus in the nicotine dialogue is on manufacturers, regulators, policy and the population. This discussion shines the light on the very start and end of the supply chain and groups that aren’t usually part of discussions. Hear about their positions, what support they have and need and what steps they’re taking to adapt to the new realities posed by the nicotine dialogue going on within tobacco and nicotine.
The discussion begins with representatives of the grower communities and where leaf supply fits into the wider nicotine dialogue.
Terry Gallagher, President of Smoker Friendly International hosts a discussion on the complexities of the nicotine dialogue faced at the other end of the supply chain where it’s most complex. What retailers and wholesalers think and what are the communication pitfalls in dealing with their customers within the context of the nicotine dialogue.
