Sustainable Agriculture and Farmer Livelihoods

At BAT, we are committed to working to enable prosperous livelihoods for all farmers who supply our tobacco leaf.

Tobacco leaf remains at the core of our products, so the farmers who grow it are at the heart of our supply chain. Our sustainable agriculture objectives are fundamental to ensuring the continued success and long-term security of our business and, crucially, to fulfilling our role in wider society to support farmers and their communities, now and in the future.

BAT has been working in partnership with tobacco farmers for more than a century. Over that time, we’ve evolved our approach to take advantage of new opportunities and adapt to a changing world, focused on creating value for the future of our business and the farmers we work with.
