According to the proposal, a new excise tax on tobacco is to be introduced so that the price increases by SEK 34 for a can of portion snus and by SEK 62 for a can of loose snus.

The proposal is to be published at the beginning of December, reports Aftonbladet.

Patrik Hildingsson, communications manager for Swedish Match, rages against the EU's plans.

– The already heavily taxed Swede seems to tolerate a high degree of patronage. But here I think we are actually crossing the line, he tells Aftonbladet.
