British American Tobacco Kenya Limited is a Kenya-based company, and part of the British American Tobacco Group, the world’s second largest tobacco Group. Our core operations in Kenya are cigarette manufacturing for domestic and export consumption, cut rag (semi processed) tobacco manufacture for Egypt, leaf growing operations, and green leaf threshing in Thika. It began operations in Kenya in 1907, and has grown to become a market leader in the domestic cigarette industry. The Nairobi cigarette factory was set up in 1956 and has since matured to become one of the Group’s strategic manufacturing hubs. Approximately 60% of the volumes produced in the Nairobi factory are exported to 17 markets within the East African Community Common Market and COMESA trade bloc. Domestic leaf growing began in 1975, and this was quickly followed by the set-up of the Green Leaf Threshing Plant in 1978 in Thika. BAT Kenya is listed on the Nairobi Securities Exchange since 1969 and is currently one of the largest companies. The company was in 2013 recognised as the 4th largest taxpayer in Kenya with a record remittance of Kshs 14.5bn in Excise, VAT and Corporate taxes, an increase of 11% over 2012.
