What Top Employers say about themselves

Philip Morris South Africa Group of Companies was established in 2003 and its affiliates in South Africa are part of Philip Morris International (PMI), a global leader in the tobacco industry.

Being consistently certified as a Global Top Employer, and as a Top Employer in South Africa and Africa for the last four years, is an external validation of our passion and commitment to invest in our people and their development, from all functions and all regions, allowing them to advance our business further for today and for tomorrow!

Philip Morris is the second-largest tobacco company in South Africa. The company’s portfolio in South Africa includes Marlboro and Chesterfield as well as other tobacco products such as Best Blend and Boxer pipe tobacco and Taxi snuff. Its products are distributed domestically and to export markets in the Southern African Customs Union region.

In May 2017 the company enhanced its portfolio by adding a revolutionary heated tobacco product, IQOS, a better alternative to continued smoking and an integral part of the company’s vision to create a smoke-free South Africa.
