    • Philip Morris International (PMI) and Altria have been entirely separate companies since 2008 with PMI focusing on international markets outside the United States.
    • Philip Morris was a real person, and he opened a tobacco shop on London’s Bond Street in 1847, but he is not connected to the Philip Morris International (PMI) we know today. Incorporated in 1987, PMI is a leading international tobacco company building our future on smoke-free products that are a much better choice than continued smoking. You can read more about our story on our “Key milestones” page.
    • We sell over 160 brands. Our cigarette portfolio is led by Marlboro, the world’s best-selling international cigarette. Our smoke-free portfolio is led by our IQOS heated tobacco brand, which does not burn tobacco, but delivers the nicotine and taste that can satisfy existing adult smokers. We also sell the IQOS VEEV e-vapor product. We’re aiming for smoke-free products to account for more than 50 percent of our total net revenues by 2025.
