About the company

About Swedish Match

Half of everyone who starts smoking will die because of it. Many smokers become smokefree by opening the lid on a can of snus and finding a new, better way to enjoy nicotine. To a large extent, it is thanks to snus that people in Sweden smoke the least in the entire EU. That is why snus improves public health, which ultimately saves lives.

It’s no wonder we at Swedish Match are proud to work here!
