British American Tobacco is all about freedom of choice — whether it’s our people or our products. Combined with our entrepreneurial spirit, it’s what’s driven our phenomenal success. We started trading tobacco over a hundred years ago. Today, we’re a multibillion dollar company with more than 200 brands in our portfolio. With robust positions in each of our regional markets, our future looks equally bright too. There’s no doubt our industry is controversial — we’re the first to admit that. But rest assured, we take a responsible approach to our trade. In our market, we observe every law and regulation regarding tobacco (in many cases going further through our own voluntary code). Not only that, we treat our Global farmers fairly, invest in the environment and help to sustain local communities. We also excel at developing our own people into leaders of the future.
