Pillars that Power Tobacco Ambitions


Sustainability is central to the Group's growth strategy. Integrated into the entire management system from crop, to the processes to the products, which include environmental criteria, safer working standards as well as other social measures.
Continued emphasis on inclusive development - efforts towards effective pre and post-harvesting practices have assured better quality and increased yields for farmers. Having embedded enduring sustainability policies in the entire tobacco value-chain, BBM has set a benchmark for being a truly successful business.


Many years of proficiency in the industry, the Group has progressively augmented capacities aligning with international market demands. Enhanced yields by farmers, scale up in processing facilities, manpower and production have added to the portfolio with new products and expanded markets.


Focusing on compliance and quality, the Group has established effectual traceability procedures from farming to packaging. In order to meet consumer demands for consistent supply of top of the range tobacco products, as well as to ensure confidence in the tobacco line, the design and implementation of traceable supply chains from farm to end-user has become an important part of the Group's assurance system.
