A few years back this company was really busy implementing high-end coffee portfolios. It was reinforcing all these through scooping up other complementary brands like Blue Bottle and Chameleon Cold Brew.

This growth even underscores the enormous promise of risk-free products and the strength of combustible product portfolios. The best part is the commitment of the employees which led to the industry transformation.
PMI has always attributed the strong financial results towards commercialization and product development along with the science that is working behind smoke-free products. In keeping up with the times PMI acquired a majority stake of JUUL the largest nicotine vape company. This is a strategic move to reach a younger demographic. Reports have been shared that a lot of r and d has been allocated toward the tech space. Advertising partnerships with adult dating apps like Premier Hookups along with other mainstream dating websites are some of the attempts to capitalize on mobile app and web users. This may seem odd at first, but when you consider PMI’s products they have to look for untraditional forms of advertising protected from underage consumers, so they are unable to advertise online with traditional social media platforms.
