British American Tobacco Launches Vintage-Looking Floor Display

Lucky Strike Floor Display

An eye-catching cargo crate in the supermarket: The outstanding promotional display created by Frankfurt-based Agentur BestSeller on behalf of British American Tobacco (Germany) GmbH using Sappi’s bright white Fusion topliner not only stimulated curiosity and emotion at the point of sale, but also won over juries for two major industry awards. In the display for cigarette brand Lucky Strike Straight Red, jury members determined that the aim of selling cigarettes for the first time on the shop floor in food retail had been fulfilled in an outstanding and creative way.
