Welcome to Philip Morris Australia. Established in 1954 and based in Melbourne, Victoria, we were the first affiliate in the world to produce Philip Morris International brands outside of the United States.
We have a talented, culturally diverse workforce of around 350 people. We believe in being inclusive, flexible and transparent as an organization. This attitude allows our employees to bring our strategy to fruition.
We are working towards a future without cigarettes: a future where adult smokers have access to smoke-free alternatives that are a far better choice than continued smoking.
As part of our commitment to contribute to the community, our Workplace Giving Program allows our employees to donate to a number of charity organisations that fund a broad range of causes, including education, animal welfare, and mental health.
Illicit Tobacco Trade:
Cigarettes are among the most illegally trafficked goods in the world. It’s a global issue and we’re working with the government and other partners in the public and private sectors to address this problem. Read more about how we’re fighting illicit trade and the latest report on Illicit tobacco in Australia.
Philip Morris Australia is a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC), a sustainable packaging initiative that aims to change the culture of business to design more sustainable packaging, increase recycling rates, and reduce packaging litter. It is an agreement between government, industry, and community groups to find and fund solutions to address packaging sustainability issues. Philip Morris Australia’s APC Action Plan is available HERE and our 2018 annual report is available HERE.
