Frequently asked questions

What steps do you take to prevent child labor on tobacco farms?

According to the International Labor Organization, 59 percent of child labor can be found in agriculture, and a significant number of them perform hazardous work.

In many cases, child labor is often the result of complex challenges stemming from socioeconomic realities and cultural practices. 

Together with the NGO Verité, we have developed a comprehensive approach to addressing child labor wherever we source tobacco.
