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. This drives our desire to deliver continuous improvement in our high-quality tobacco portfolio and to provide alternative products with potentially lower health risks, underpinned by leading-edge science.
Our culture is grounded in responsible behaviour, and 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. Our tobacco brands are sold in around 160 markets worldwide, including the USA where we have a significant presence through our ITG Brands business.
As nicotine consumption trends continue to evolve we have broadened our product offering across a wider range of nicotine categories.
We support smokers to switch to our portfolio of potentially less harmful Next Generation Products (NGP), at the heart of which lies our pioneering blu brand.
As more and more consumers transition away from combustible tobacco, 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.
