Marketing

OCB ExpertiseWe are constantly developing new products and adapt our offer to the needs and special features of each market, which allows us to maintain our position as a key player in the RYO and MYO markets.

We distribute our products ranges in over 95 countries worldwide.
Our wide range of markets and customers has led us to draw up a sophisticated marketing strategy. Our sales representatives maintain a special relationship with our distributors in order to meet their needs.

We have set up a strategic monitoring unit to keep an eye on product and market development. This enables us to validate our innovations and ensure that our offer is competitive.

We develop specific communication plans for each of our brands (cf. chapters on Brands)

We develop and produce our papers in consultation with our suppliers. They know our processes and requirements. They use the very latest paper-making technologies and have a sound knowledge of the international regulations that apply to all our products.
Our packaging suppliers work upstream with us to develop innovative, exclusive solutions. Our internal graphics department provides total flexibility and reactivity.

Product Packaging DevelopmentWe have introduced a policy that aims to:

  • Use “eco-sustainable” materials as much as possible : recycled cardboard, vegetable inks, etc…
  • Reduce our carbon footprint by optimizing packaging volumes and reducing the amount of packaging.
