More than a decade ago, we set ourselves the goal of creating less harmful alternatives to cigarettes for adult smokers who do not quit.

      Thanks to the inventiveness and perseverance of our scientists and thousands of others at PMI, we have done exactly that, developing breakthrough products and assessing their potential for harm reduction. Millions of adult smokers have chosen to go smoke-free with our products.
