Australia upholds plain packaging on cigarettes

The tobacco industry takes another blow as Australia refuses branded packaging


In another blow to the tobacco industry, Australia’s high court upheld the plain packaging act. The act says that tobacco products have to be in plain packaging with no logos, along with health warning graphics as of December 1.

The government called it a “watershed moment for tobacco control around the world.”

Australia is the first country in the world to require plain packaging for their tobacco products. The brand name will be listed against a dark-colour background.
