Tobacco giant, Imperial Brands, at its annual shareholders meeting recently in the UK, announced its profits and plans for the next five years – these plans depict a bleak future for Africa. The tobacco multinational plans to turn Africa “from an unloved asset to a platform for future growth.”
According to Imperial Brands, tobacco sales are expected “to decline in most regions – except for Africa.” The tobacco giant states that in Africa, it has “leadership positions in four of our top five markets, thanks to strong brands and unparalleled route-to-market capabilities.” It adds that it has identified opportunities to drive growth through multiple levers in the region, where affordability is improving as incomes increase.
