As you might be aware, the UK Government has announced proposals to address underage vaping and create a smoke-free generation. A significant measure in the proposal includes a ban on single-use (disposable) vapes.
At Supreme, our dedication to preventing underage vaping while offering adult smokers a safer and more affordable alternative remains unwavering. In anticipation of these upcoming regulatory changes, we proactively announced modifications to our product packaging and flavour names in December. These changes, along with our rigorous age verification protocols, underscore our commitment to responsible selling practices.

Understanding the Timeline
According to the latest guidance, the ban is expected to take effect around October, with a subsequent 6-month window for the sale of existing stock. This extends the transition period until March 2025. We want to assure you that Supreme Imports is fully prepared for this transition.
Our Solutions and Support
To adapt to the forthcoming regulations, we have developed a comprehensive range of alternative vaping solutions. We already have some of these available to buy including Moja, Dot Pro, Elfa Pro, Tappo, Sky Hunter 2600, and our own 88vape POD is in production. Our move towards plain packaging and the renaming of flavours will further align our products with new government regulations.
Collaboration and Support
While immediate changes are not yet mandated, we are closely monitoring the situation. Supreme is committed to working alongside our valued partners to ensure a smooth transition once the new regulations come into effect. We are here to support you through this change, providing guidance, information, and alternative products that comply with the upcoming regulations.
We believe that through collaboration and adherence to these new measures, we can continue to support adult smokers while safeguarding against underage vaping. Our team is available to discuss any concerns or questions you may have regarding the transition to pod systems and the impact of packaging and flavour changes on your business.
Thank you for your continued partnership and trust in Supreme Imports. Together, we can navigate these changes while maintaining our shared goals of promoting a healthier, smoke-free future.
