Altria's
10-Year Vision

Responsibly lead the transition of adult smokers to a non-combustible future. 

Moving Beyond Smoking

Our industry stands at a pivotal moment. Today, approximately 22 million U.S. adult smokers are interested in less harmful tobacco products. That’s why we’re leveraging the resources across our companies, and through strategic investments, to offer the most diverse portfolio of products to satisfy adult preferences and transition adult smokers to non-combustible products.

Our team of more than 250 scientists, physicians, product developers, engineers and regulatory experts from around the world share a common goal – advancing tobacco harm reduction. To that end, we invest in the foundational science needed to demonstrate that non-combustible tobacco products are less harmful than cigarettes and to support the product applications we submit to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Together, we are dedicated to researching innovative products, pursuing regulatory authorization by FDA and constructively engaging with regulatory bodies, the broader scientific community and other stakeholders.  Much of this work occurs at our Center for Research & Technology in Richmond, Virginia.
