The World Trade Organization on Wednesday dealt a blow to a U.S. law barring the sale of clove-flavored cigarettes to discourage children from smoking, saying it was unfair to Indonesia because menthol cigarettes can still be sold in the United States.

“The United States is very disappointed with the outcome of this dispute,” Nkenge Harmon, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office, said. “The ban on cigarettes with flavors is part of landmark U.S. legislation to combat the public health crisis caused by tobacco products.”

Indonesia, the world’s top producer of clove cigarettes and the source of the vast majority of those smoked in the United States, brought the World Trade Organization case in April 2010.

The U.S. Congress passed legislation during President Barack Obama’s first year in office in 2009 banning the production and sale of cigarettes with flavors such as clove, cinnamon, strawberry or cherry, but not regular or menthol cigarettes.

The WTO appellate body on Wednesday said the ban on clove cigarettes was discriminatory because a similar product, menthol cigarettes, can still be sold in the United States.

Matthew Myers, president of Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, said the WTO “wrongly concluded that a decision by the U.S. Congress on how best to protect America’s children from flavored cigarettes that serve as starter products for youth violates the nation’s trade obligations.”

A California Democrat who played a leading role in passage of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, said the decision had “serious public health implications” for U.S. efforts to reduce teen smoking, but vowed the clove cigarette ban would remain.

“I believe the WTO’s interpretation is wrong on the merits and wrong in its interference with our efforts to protect the American public from tobacco’s devastating effects,” Representative Henry Waxman said, noting the U.S. law does not distinguish where cigarettes are made.

Harmon said the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office was examining its options for complying with the ruling.

If the ban remains, Indonesia could impose retaliatory duties on the U.S. exports equal to the amount of trade it has lost, which one analyst estimated at about $16 million per year.

The United States could also comply by offering Indonesia new trade concessions, as it has done in some other disputes where Congress was unwilling to change the law.

Myers urged the Food and Drug Administration to ban menthol cigarettes, noting a scientific advisory committee created by the 2009 law had recommended that more than a year ago.

“The FDA has had more than enough time to determine how to implement the committee’s recommendation,” Myers said. “It is time for the FDA to act.”

That would affect cigarette makers Lorillard Inc, the Philip Morris USA unit of Altria Group, the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. unit of Reynolds American Inc, and Liggett Vector Brands LLC.

Mark McMinimy, a senior policy analyst with Guggenheim Securities, said in a research note that he doubted the Obama administration would take that step.

U.S. trade officials made “forceful arguments” against a ban on menthol cigarettes in their WTO appeal, he said.

It is unlikely the FDA would ban or phase out menthol cigarettes without “the emergence of new and compelling information that indicts this product as a special menace to public health,” McMinimy said.

Global Tobacco Giant Pays $494 Million for Bentoel to Expand in a Growing Market

JAKARTA, Indonesia — British American Tobacco PLC paid $494 million for an 85% stake in PT Bentoel Internasional Investama, an Indonesian cigarettes producer, as global tobacco companies look to offset sluggish sales in Western nations through acquisitions in the developing world.

Packages of Bentoel cigarettes at a shop in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Wednesday.

London-based BAT, the world’s second-largest cigarette producer by sales after Philip Morris International Inc. of the U.S., said Wednesday it hopes to complete a tender offer for the remaining shares by the end of August. The offer is a 20% premium on Bentoel‘s stock price and values the entire company at $580 million.

The purchase is the latest sign of renewed investor interest in Indonesia, the world’s fourth-most-populous nation, which the International Monetary Fund forecasts will achieve between 3% and 4% economic growth in 2009 as solid consumer spending offsets lower exports to the U.S. and Europe. The government expects foreign investment — largely in consumer and resources sectors — to grow 9% this year from $14 billion in 2008.

BAT’s purchase of Bentoel, which has a 7% share of the Indonesian tobacco market, the world’s fifth-largest by volume with 250 billion cigarettes sold annually, brings it into competition with Philip Morris. In 2005, Philip Morris paid $5.2 billion to take over Bentoel rival PT Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna and has turned the company into the market leader, with a 29% share of local cigarette sales. Cigarette sales in the U.S. and Europe have slowed on heightened concerns over health risks and smoking bans.

BAT, formed in 1902 as a joint venture between the U.K.’s Imperial Tobacco Co. and the American Tobacco Co. to trade products outside Great Britain and the U.S., today derives about two-thirds of its sales from emerging markets in Asia, Russia, Latin America and Eastern Europe — though Western markets still deliver the bulk of profit because of higher margins.

The company, whose brands include Dunhill, Kent, Lucky Strike and Pall Mall, has failed to build a large following in Indonesia, where 90% of consumers smoke pungent “kretek” cigarettes, produced by companies like Sampoerna and Bentoel from a mixture of cloves and tobacco.

BAT decided the only way to build sizable market share in Indonesia was to take over a kretek maker, said Simon Millson, a Hong Kong-based spokesman for the company. BAT’s existing local unit in Indonesia, which doesn’t sell kretek cigarettes, has a 2% market share.

The main seller to BAT was Rajawali Group, a diversified Indonesian concern that owned 56% of Bentoel. Deutsche Bank AG and UBS AG advised BAT on the Bentoel deal.


California — The Food and Drug Administration will start enforcing a ban on flavored clove cigarettes next month. But a California based importer of clove-flavored cigarettes has found a way around the new law.

Kretek International is the nation’s largest importer of clove cigarettes. To circumvent the ban on flavored cigarettes, the company plans to sell small clove-scented cigars.

Cigars are not included in the new FDA ban.

Debra Kelley is with the San Diego County chapter of the American Lung Association. She says a lot of young people start smoking with clove-flavored tobacco.

“They’re really aimed at kids,” Kelley says. “A lot of adults even today have never even heard of this product. But we know from talking to kids and some studies that have been done, that kids perceive these as natural cigarettes.”

Researchers say clove cigarettes may be more dangerous than regular cigarettes, because they contain higher levels of tar and nicotine.


RICHMOND, Va. — The nation’s top distributor of clove cigarettes is offering fans a new way to get their fix after the spice-flavored cigarettes are banned later this year — cigars.

The new filtered cigars — close to the size of a cigarette and flavored with clove, vanilla and cherry — allow Kretek International Inc., which imports Djarum-brand tobacco products from Indonesia, to avoid new federal laws banning flavored cigarettes other than menthol.

The ban on flavored cigarettes, which critics say appeal to teenagers, goes into effect at the end of September. It doesn’t include cigars.

The difference? Cigarettes are wrapped in thin paper, cigars in tobacco leaves. While the cigars also are made with a different kind of tobacco, the taste is similar. The cigars come 12 to a pack, rather than 20 for cigarettes, but cost nearly half as much.

The ban is one of the first visible effects of a new law signed by President Barack Obama in June that gives the Food and Drug Administration wide-ranging authority to regulate tobacco, though it can’t ban nicotine or tobacco outright.

The new law gives the FDA the power to ban other products like flavored cigars, but that hasn’t happened yet.

Whether the cigars are truly different or just an attempt to circumvent the ban by making superficial changes is in the hands of the FDA, said Matthew Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.

“The key is the legislation gives the FDA the authority to respond to these types of frankly totally irresponsible actions,” Myers said.

Myers joined executives from the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Lung Association and the Amercian Legacy Foundation late last month urging the FDA to take a closer look at the issue.

Often associated with hippies and other bohemians, clove cigarettes may be the most well-known target of the ban. Some major cigarette makers experimented with mint- or chocolate-flavored blends earlier this decade, but many of those products are no longer made after coming under fire, accused of targeting children.

John Geoghegan, director of brand development for Moorpark, Calif.-based Kretek International, said the private company has been “puzzled about (the ban) since the very beginning” because clove cigarettes constitute less than 1 percent of cigarettes sold in the U.S.

“For people to say, ‘Well, clove is a starter cigarette or a trainer cigarette’ or something was just preposterous,” Geoghegan said, citing company research about when and how consumers begin smoking.

Kretek International holds a 97 percent U.S. market share with its line of Djarum clove cigarettes, a staple of Indonesian smoking culture.

The U.S. market for clove cigarettes is about $140 million annually, with about 1.25 million clove smokers. Cloves have been imported to the U.S. since the 1960s and are mostly smoked by people younger than 30.

While Geoghegan said clove cigarettes make up about 65 percent of Kretek International’s business, the ban is “damaging but not fatal” because of the company’s other products like lighters and pipe tobacco.

Now, clove smokers are being forced to decide whether to switch to the new cigars, or quit. Many will likely stock up or try to buy product over the Internet.

And how the ban will work remains a point of contention for shop owners who sell clove cigarettes. But the FDA says the message is clear: Flavored cigarettes are banned, and the agency has the authority necessary to enforce the prohibition.

“So, what do we do with the stuff that’s on the shelves? Who eats that? Is it legal to sell until it’s gone or what?” asked Jim Carlson, owner of two CVille Smoke Shop stores in Charlottesville, Va., about 70 miles northwest of Richmond.

Carlson said he sells about 3,000 packs of the flavored cigarettes a year.

“You don’t make a lot of money, but still it’s income … and it brings customers into the store,” he said.

Lake Isabella, Calif., resident Terry Day, 42, used to drive 240 miles round trip to buy clove cigarettes when he lived in rural Valentine, Neb. He said he might try the cigars but was dubious about whether he would like them.

“I certainly don’t like to be forced into that choice,” said the clove smoker of 14 years. “I’m probably going to buy me enough to last until Oct. 1, then I’m just going to have to quit.”
