PMI is the world’s leading international tobacco company, with six of the world's top 15 international brands and products sold in more than 180 markets.

Through multidisciplinary capabilities in product development, state-of-the-art facilities, and industry-leading scientific substantiation, PMI aims to provide an RRP portfolio that meets a broad spectrum of adult smoker preferences and rigorous regulatory requirements.
