How we operate
We are a national company with manufacturing and sales facilities throughout the Bangladesh.
Wherever we manufacture, we apply the same exacting standards to ensure the best quality in low & mid segment that smokers of our brands have come to expect.
Currently we are distributing our brands to almost 8 lac outlet. We have a good reputation as we have sufficient vehicle and our manpower is skilled and dedicated enough.
Our day-to-day operations, however, involve more than just making cigarettes; they are also about the way we do business and interact with the world outside our offices, both locally and globally.
In every district in Bangladesh where our cigarettes are sold, we are guided by the same basic principles.
One of our principal goals is to be a socially responsible company. Because of this, we are passionate about our social performance:
• We have adopted policies and implemented programs to consistently reduce our environmental impact, using fewer natural resources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions with tree planning program, and producing less waste.
• We work with growers and suppliers to promote sustainable tobacco farming.
• We work with suppliers, interest groups, and governments to address the problems of child labor and other abuses in labor markets related to our supply chain.
• We contribute to improving our local communities through charitable giving, volunteer activities, and support of a wide network of non-profit organizations.
Across this website you will find information on these and many other initiatives we have put in place.
