According to the company, the site's structure and content has been updated to reflect the company's strategic framework around three key transformation: tobacco harm reduction, commercial integrity and youth tobacco prevention.
"This new website will continue to inform retailers and wholesalers about the impact higher cigarette excise taxes will have on their businesses," said Steve Kottak, R.J.

Among its many features, transformtobacco.com is mobile device friendly and it has an interactive state-by-state map with key information, links to its Facebook and Twitter pages, and updated content on tobacco issues. Visitors can also connect with their legislators via a toll-free number, by e-mail (determined by ZIP code), and by following steps for ongoing relationship-building with elected officials, the company added.
