Under the spotlight

Illicit trade

When consumers light-up a smuggled or counterfeit cigarette they may be unwittingly helping to fund organised crime which is just one of the serious problems associated with the trade in illicit tobacco.

Plain Packaging

We are strongly opposed to the Smoke-free Environments (Tobacco Plain Packaging) Amendment Bill and call on the Government not to pass the Bill.

Balanced regulation

We do not question that tobacco needs to be subject to restrictions, but real progress can best be achieved by giving all stakeholders an opportunity for genuine participation in the regulatory process.


Finding talented people with drive and motivation to excel is essential to the environment we’ve created at British American Tobacco.
