We are Imperial Brands PLC, a dynamic fast moving consumer goods company borne out of a strong tobacco heritage. We have continually evolved to embrace changing market dynamics and develop new consumer experiences.
Our 30,000-plus employees are united by our purpose: to create something better for the world's smokers. Our exciting work on innovation is transforming our portfolio of high quality next generation and tobacco products.
Integral to the long-term success of our business is our sustainability strategy. We take pride in behaving responsibly and running our business the right way. It’s not just the right thing to do – it underpins the ongoing growth and development of our business.
Our PLC name reflects the breadth of our brands focus across five distinct entities: Imperial Tobacco, Tabacalera, ITG Brands, Fontem Ventures and Logista.
Our core business is built around a tobacco portfolio that offers a comprehensive range of cigarettes, fine cut and smokeless tobaccos, papers and cigars. Through our Imperial Tobacco subsidiaries, our tobacco brands are sold in around 160 markets worldwide. We have a significant presence in the USA through our ITG Brands business.
As millions of smokers around the world continue to choose less harmful Next Generation Products (NGP), we're increasingly focusing our attention on developing and expanding our NGP portfolio.
We want smokers to switch to alternative products with lower health risks. Our Fontem Ventures subsidiary continues to prioritise vapour, and we are represented in this category by the pioneering vapour brand, blu. As more and more consumers quit smoking through vaping, NGP will become an increasingly material part of our business.
Our operating environment is changing and we are changing too, transforming into a leaner and more agile business.
We’re proud of our long history, and the strength of our brands and the talents of our people are a winning combination to deliver quality sustainable growth in the years ahead.
