Our vision on smoking

Smoking is for adults only, and the health risk must be taken seriously by everybody. Every smoker should balance the pleasure of smoking against the risk involvement, and then make personal choice whether to smoke or not. We do not work to increase the number of smokers, we grow our business by growing market share and encouraging smokers to choose our products over those of our competitors. We target our advertising and promotion to adults only.

We welcome smokers as well as non-smokers into our company.

Scandinavian Tobacco Group is all about creating moments of great enjoyment for smokers. This promise has made us a world leading manufacturer of cigars and traditional pipe tobacco. When you join our company, you’ll be part of an industry that is constantly changing. It takes a team of quick minds to grow and thrive, even when you deliver high-quality, natural products like ours. That’s why we look for smart, tenacious people who will go that extra mile. In return, we offer you the opportunity to challenge the status quo and the chance to develop new products and techniques. We’ll give you the freedom to question the way we do things and room to explore as far as your talent will take you. It is our belief that smoking tobacco involves a health risk and is habitual. Smoking is a choice made by adults, and nobody under the age of 18 should smoke. Scandinavian Tobacco Group welcomes both smokers and none smokers
