Abul Khair Tobacco Company supports charitable giving programs that improve living conditions in places our employees reside and work, as well as in the farming communities where we source our tobacco.
We have identified some areas of giving that we focus on education, planning. These areas parallel many of the UN Millennium Development Goals, and we have chosen to focus on them because they are among the most critical issues affecting the countries where we operate.
Tobacco products are the most heavily taxed consumer goods in Bangladesh. Governments use tobacco taxes to achieve multiple objectives. Excise taxes and other fiscal measures are used by governments to generate revenue.
