An idea from two Marine Corporals has sparked a new direction for the smokeless tobacco
category, and Southern Tobacco is guiding the way.
By Max Gartman; Smokeshop — DEC 2008
Headquartered in Statesboro, Ga., Southern Tobacco provides not only quality moist snuff, but also innovation, continuing to look forward in what has been the fastest-growing segment of the tobacco industry. Southern Tobacco’s most recent creative quest has been a partnership that combines quality moist snuff with the booming energy-enhanced products industry, thanks to two active military servicemen from the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, S.C.: Corporals Matthew Doran and Steven Rundel.
Doran and Rundel were waiting in line at their local Marine Corps 7-day store, and saw a veritable line of fellow servicemen exiting the store with two items in their hands: a can of smokeless tobacco and an energy drink. Doran and Rundel turned to each other and cracked a joke about “energy dip,” as yet a non-existent product—and then realized: that’s what had to come next. Shortly after, the two marines contacted a lawyer, filed a patent, and made some calls to shop the idea around.
Before the [IPCPR] tradeshow, Matt [Doran] and I had contacted a few of the big players in smokeless tobacco,” said Rundel. “We had a good idea—never told them what it was—and they just swept us under the rug, didn’t want anything to do with us.” The two hung tight to their idea and after discussion, decided that attending the annual IPCPR trade show was the right thing to do.
As it turns out, Rundel’s son was born shortly before the show and he wasn’t able to attend, but the partners were so intent on having a presence there that Doran went by himself to shop their idea around. “My mission was to find somebody out there to support it,” says Doran. Through a single connection, they made contact with Southern Tobacco, and as Rundel put it, “they stepped in and were all about it.” Revved Up, the first energy dip, moved into development.
“We’re not trying to capture a new tobacco user,” said Rundel, “we’re trying to give the guys who’re already dipping something new and better.” Adds Doran, “This is really for our fellow military members and the guys with the long, hard shifts: the firefighters, or for somebody who’s on patrol overseas. I want them walking around alert, not tired. The last thing you want is your EMT driver falling asleep because he’s tired at four in the morning.”
To make this never-before-seen product, Southern Tobacco sourced multiple energy supplement ingredients from outside, but did all the mixing and blending in-house. “That’s part of our jobs as the manufacturers of this product,” said Owens. “We have to make sure we can offer people this product with its extra benefit, the energy enhancing supplements, while delivering a flavor profile and a taste casing that they’re used to.
“That’s not always the easiest task in the world, but I think we have definitely created a product in which the flavor has not been affected in an adverse way, the delivery has not been affected in an adverse way, and the familiarity of the flavors is still there. It’s virtually the same flavors with the benefit of energy enhancing supplements.”
Doran and Rundel also contributed some of the packaging designs as well. “We made it with colored pencils,” laughed Doran. “The artwork on the can is almost, to a tee, the original artwork that Matt and I created,” said Rundel. “It was really awesome to see the first can…to see your full idea and hold it in your hand.”
As for Doran and Rundel, when their contracts with the military are finished in January 2010, could there be a future in smokeless tobacco? “We’d love to continue to help the success of Revved Up, definitely,” said Rundel.
“The whole idea behind the product was that we developed it for the military. We’re not really interested in branching out,” said Doran. “We’re focused on this, and this is our forte. The smokeless business is on the rise. It’s good timing.”
