Child & Forced Labor
Altria's companies are committed to tackling concerns about child labor in tobacco farming. We don’t condone the unlawful employment of children, nor do we condone forced labor.
Although Altria's tobacco companies don’t own or operate tobacco farms, we respect human rights within our supply chain. Our companies discuss their expectations with suppliers and require them to accept responsibility for their labor practices. Our grower contracts establish a minimum employment age at 16 years with limited exceptions granted based on local, state and federal laws.
