What does this mean for JTI?
JTI aims to support governments and law enforcement to prevent all forms of illegal trade in tobacco products including diversion or counterfeiting of JTI brands. The scope includes the illegal manufacture, distribution, import, export, purchase, storage, sale, or possession of JTI products in contravention of national or international legislation, or JTI’s intellectual property rights.
Illegal tobacco negatively impacts society, reduces government tax revenues, supports organized crime, undermines legitimate tobacco business and damages reputation.
We closely monitor our markets and customers to ensure that JTI tobacco products only reach adult consumers through legal trade channels in their intended destination markets.
