Who We Are

Philip Morris International is the world’s leading international tobacco company, with a diverse workforce of over 80,000 people who hail from every corner of the globe and who are pictured throughout this website. 

We are committed to being a great employer and a good corporate citizen. We strive to be environmentally and socially responsible. We are dedicated to fighting the illegal cigarette trade. And we proudly support the communities where we source tobacco and where our employees live and work.

Six of the world's top international 15 brands, spanning more than 180 markets, are ours, including Marlboro, the world's number one. We operate 48 production facilities in 32 different countries.

Our products are the choice of 150 million consumers worldwide, and for those who choose to continue to smoke, we will continue to offer them the best quality products. But that’s not where our vision for smokers ends.

We’re dedicated to doing something very dramatic – replacing cigarettes with the smoke-free products that we’re developing and selling.

That’s why we have a total of over 400 dedicated scientists, engineers, and technicians developing less harmful alternatives to cigarettes at our two Research & Development sites in Switzerland and Singapore.

It’s the biggest shift in our history. And it’s the right one for our consumers, our company, our shareholders, and society.
