Roll-your-own (RYO) specialist Republic Technologies (UK) Ltd has added OCB Authentic REAL Rice Paper to its OCB range.

Organic and chlorine free, OCB Rice Papers are made from a blend of rice and organic hemp. The unbleached, ultra-thin papers deliver a premium rolling and slow-burning experience in a natural, brown paper.

Gavin Anderson, sales and marketing director at Republic Technologies, said: “We’re very confident that OCB Rice Papers will appeal to the growing number of RYO consumers now looking more closely at products with natural ingredients. OCB always delivers on quality and value, which has led to strong levels of repeat purchase with shoppers.”

The launch comes as rolling papers remain the best-performing sector in tobacco accessories, growing at +12% and worth almost £72m in the convenience channel (Circana data). OCB, the UK’s fastest growing paper brand in the tracked market, is leading the charge with growth of +45% year-on-year (Circana).

Featuring 32 papers per pack, OCB Rice is available in both Slim (rrp, £1.10) and Slim & Tips (rrp, £1.73).
