pakistan tobacco company - Our company

Pakistan Tobacco Company Limited was incorporated in 1947 immediately after partition, when it took over the business of the Imperial Tobacco Company of India which had been operational in the subcontinent since 1905.


Satisying Consumer Moments

We believe that by being the world’s best at satisfying consumer moments, we will become the leader in our industry. Consumers are at the core of everything we do and our success depends on addressing their evolvingconcerns, needs and behaviours.

Tobacco and Beyond

The second part of our vision – tobacco and beyond – recognizes the strength of our traditional tobacco business and the opportunities we see in next-generation tobacco and nicotine products. There is a great potential business opportunity because consumers are looking for choices and product categories in which we are uniquely placed to succeed.


Champion Informed Consumer Choice

We need to continue to ensure that our adult consumers are fully aware of the choices they are making when they purchase our products. We recognise that we have a responsibility to offer a range of products across the risk continuum, but we will also defend people’s right to make an informed choice.

Deliver our Commitment to Society

As society changes and priorities and needs shift, we must be ready to meet new challenges and take advantage of new opportunities. We are a major international business and with this status comes responsibilities such as being open about the risks of our products, supporting rural communities worldwide and minimising our impact on the environment.

The company prides itself in being the first multi-national company to begin its operations in Pakistan. Our parent company, British American Tobacco has been in business for over 100 years now with a presence in over 180 countries. The Group has built an international reputation for making and marketing high quality brands for the millions of informed adults who choose to consume tobacco.

From being just a single factory operation to a company which is involved in every aspect of cigarette production, from crop to consumer, we have evolved into one of the leading corporations in Pakistan. We run two state of the art factories and employ more than 1,700 people while indirectly providing livelihoods to more than a million people who are involved in various aspects of the business. We are market leaders and contribute more than Rs. 30 billion in excise duties and taxes to the Government. Our strategy reflects our vision, being the champions of growth, productivity, responsibility and a winning organization.

Our brands encompass our values and we boast a diversified portfolio catering to the different tastes and preferences of the entire tobacco market. By offering products that are superior in quality, driven by global standards, we meet and exceed the expectations of our consumers.

We, as a company, work towards broader goals beyond the benefit of the shareholders and demonstrate support for communities, high standards of ethical behaviour and greater transparency and accountability. We are committed to continuous improvement and to keeping an open mind. We have learnt that companies can rarely act alone; almost all our contributions to society involve working constructively with others and by engaging and listening to our stakeholders. By matching our words with our actions, we aim to demonstrate the behaviour of a responsive and responsible tobacco company.
