​​​​​Altria's companies have a strong American heritage stretching back more than 180 years. 
Today, the tobacco industry is changing – and for the better.​ The future of our industry is about innovation, harm reduction and informed consumer choice. With FDA regulation of the tobacco industry in place, we're focusing our tremendous resources, talented people​​ and decades of experience to be the U.S. leader in FDA authorized, non-combustible, reduced-risk products. ​​​
We know that businesses that are great over the long term – like ours – must earn today's success while preparing for tomorrow's opportunities. And we are doing just that. 
​Our​ aspiration is to be the
U.S. leader in authorized,
reduced-risk products.​
Our Approach
Developing tobacco products that could be lower risk and seeking FDA authorization to communicate reduced harm claims.
Providing adult consumers more choices by developing a wider variety of tobacco products across the continuum of risk.
Taking a responsible approach that will allow us to continue being the leader in the tobacco industry.​​​
We are a Fortune 200 company, proud to call Richmond, Virginia our home. Our companies – which have been the undisputed market leaders in the U.S. tobacco industry for decades – include some of the most enduring names in American business: Philip Morris USA, the maker of Marlboro cigarettes, and U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company, the maker of Copenhagen and Skoal. We also own John Middleton, manufacturer of Black & Mild cigars, Nat Sherman, a super-premium cigarette and cigar business and Nu Mark, an innovation company that makes e-vapor products like Mark Ten.
​We complement our total tobacco platform with Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, a collection of distinctive wine estates and maker of Chateau Ste. Michelle, and our significant equity investment in Anheuser-Busch InBev – the world's largest brewer.
For 20 years, we've been guided by our Mission & Values. Our people and companies address tough industry issues, like reducing the health effects of tobacco use and preventing underage tobacco use. And we focus on strengthening the communities where we live and work.​
