Our brands

Our portfolio of more than 20 brands includes some of South Africa’s most well-known and top-selling cigarette brands.

British American Tobacco South Africa’s portfolio of more than 20 brands offers some of South Africa’s most well-known and top-selling cigarette brands, including Peter Stuyvesant, Dunhill, Kent, and Rothmans.

Consumers drive everything we do at British American Tobacco South Africa, and we invest effort and care in understanding their preferences. We believe that adult consumers make informed choices about smoking and about their brand preferences. Nationally, we offer a diversified portfolio with a brand for every taste.

Importantly, we never aim our marketing at anyone younger than 18 years. Similarly, we will never persuade adults to begin or continue smoking, but do believe that consumers are entitled to have relevant information about our tobacco products available to them.

Our marketing practices are compliant with local legislation and regulations in South Africa, and are also aligned with the British American Tobacco Group’s global International Marketing Principles. These Principles have set a benchmark for the whole tobacco industry.
