Cabinet has taken note for the introduction of Plain Packaging of Tobacco Products in Mauritius, to be effective in June 2019.
The objectives of plain packaging are to:
(a) reduce the attractiveness of tobacco products;
(b) eliminate the effects of tobacco packaging as a form of advertising and promotion;
(c) address package design techniques that may suggest that some products are less harmful than others; and
(d) increase the noticeability and effectiveness of pictorial health warnings
