Our views on important issues in the tobacco industry
Tobacco and health
We believe that no cigarette is safe, and operate our business on the basis that smoking may cause human disease.
Our business is to produce high quality tobacco products that meet the expectations of our customers and consumers.
Supply and distribution
We rigorously implement a fully documented, robust and responsible manufacturer supply policy. We apply stringent controls to our global network of distributors and we are fully committed to working in partnership with global law enforcement agencies to counter illicit trade.
We support tobacco regulation that is reasonable, proportionate and evidence based.
