HistoryEdit

Longbeach was launched in the 1980s. Eventually, the brand became the second most popular brand in Australia, after Winfield.[citation needed]

It is sold in packets of 20s, 25s,30s and 40s in strengths of 1–16 mg "milligrams" and is sold in different flavors. Longbeach also produce Rich (8mg) or Yellow (12mg) Rolling Tobacco, which comes in pouches of 25grams or 55grams.

Strengths in Australia include Filter (16 mg), Original (12 mg), Rich (8 mg), Smooth (6 mg), Fine (4 mg), Finesse (2 mg) and Select (1 mg). Menthol cigarettes come in Menthol (8 mg) and Menthol Fresh (2 mg).[4] After descriptions such as "Milds" and "Lights" were banned in 2005, the names were changed to "Rich", "Smooth", "Fine" and so on.[5]

In 2012, a pack of Longbeach cigarettes cost $10.70 in New Zealand. That price was increased to $17.00 in 2016.[6]
