Philip Morris International is the leading international tobacco company, with a diverse workforce of around 73,500 people who hail from every corner of the globe. PMI is in the midst of a large-scale transformation, from a cigarette manufacturer to a science and technology-driven company that provides smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes. Replacing cigarettes with smoke-free products as fast as possible is a dramatic move. It’s the biggest shift in the history of the company. Illicit trade makes cheap, unregulated tobacco products easily accessible, undermining efforts to reduce smoking prevalence and protect youth from smoking

At PMI, we have a dedicated global team of illicit trade prevention professionals and we have invested significant resources to ensure strong controls in our supply chain, to raise awareness of the consequences of the illicit tobacco trade, and to develop workable solutions. We have implemented technologically innovative tracking and tracing solutions, sophisticated security features and world-leading supply chain controls, but we can’t solve the problem without support from others.
