We are a wholly owned subsidiary of British American Tobacco with approximately 500 full time employees across the Middle East.

Our reputation for high quality tobacco products is the result of our commitment to employing exceptional people. We have always been committed to recruiting, developing and retaining employees of the very highest quality in our business functions. 

Harm reduction

We know tobacco products pose real and serious health risks and the only way to avoid these risks is not to use them. But many adults choose to smoke, so our top priority continues to be working towards reducing these risks and making available a range of less risky tobacco and nicotine-based alternatives.
