Pakistan Tobacco Company Limited (پاکستان تمباکو کمپنی لمیٹڈ) is a Pakistani tobacco manufacturing company which is a subsidiary of British American Tobacco.[2] It is headquartered in Islamabad, Pakistan and is the biggest cigarette maker in Pakistan. It has two factories which are located in Akora Khattak (which is near Nowshera), and Jhelum.


The company was incorporated in 1947 immediately after independence, when it took over the business of the Imperial Tobacco Company of British India which had been operational in the South Asia since 1905.[3]

It has evolved from being just a single factory operation to a company which is involved in every aspect of cigarette production, from tobacco cultivation to packaging. Over one million people are economically dependent on the industry in Pakistan.
