SnusCore e-store Skruf nicotine pouches

From newcomer to the Nordic region's second largest Nicotine Pouches manufacturer


In 2002, three friends, Ged Shudall, Titus Wouda Kuipers, and Markus Bonke, founded Skruf with a bold vision to challenge the prevailing Nicotine Pouches monopoly and revolutionize the industry with a modern approach. Despite the initial skepticism, their determination and innovative mindset proved successful. Today, Skruf stands as the Nordic region's second-largest Nicotine Pouches manufacturer with over 300 dedicated employees, and their journey of growth and innovation continues.

Challenging the Status Quo: A Swedish Classic is Born

Skruf's triumph in the Swedish and Norwegian markets can be attributed to its customer-centric approach. By carefully analyzing the market and identifying opportunities, Skruf swiftly adapts to the evolving preferences of modern snuffers. In 2003, they introduced the iconic white Nicotine Pouches box, defying the traditional dark boxes prevalent at the time. This daring move marked the beginning of Skruf's journey as a Swedish classic.
