PMI is the world’s leading international tobacco company, with six of the world's top 15 international brands and products sold in more than 180 markets.
In addition to the manufacture and sale of cigarettes, including the number one global cigarette brand, and other tobacco products, PMI is engaged in the development and commercialization of Reduced-Risk Products ( RRPs )*.
RRPs is the term we use to refer to products that present, are likely to present, or have the potential to present less risk of harm to smokers who switch to these products versus continued smoking.
We have a range of RRPs in various stages of development, scientific assessment and commercialization.
Because our RRPs do not burn tobacco, they produce far lower quantities of harmful and potentially harmful compounds than found in cigarette smoke.
