DUBAI – PMI operates and owns 44 world class, state of the art production facilities worldwide and produces over 800 billion cigarettes each year sold in over 180 markets. Not only do we abide by all applicable regulations, we also apply stringent and consistent global policies, standards and good manufacturing practices with respect to the machinery, ingredients, safety and quality for all our products, across all our facilities.

Following the implementation of the Plain Packaging Technical Regulation issued by the Saudi Food & Drug authority (SFDA), PMI makes the following statements:

1) All our cigarette products sold in Saudi Arabia are manufactured in our factories in Germany and Poland (Parliament & Marlboro excluding Touch) as well as in Turkey (L&M and Chesterfield). 

2) PMI does not manufacture any products in the UAE.

3) The barcodes used on our packs beginning with “629” only identify the administrative office where the barcode was digitally generated.

4) PMI further attests that there has been no change to the ingredients, manufacturing processes, quality and taste of tobacco relating to our products in the Saudi market before and after the implementation of the plain packaging regulation mandated by the SFDA.
