Cigarettes in Trinidad & Tobago

Trinidad & Tobago is a comparatively small and declining cigarette market with estimated sales of 1.22 billion pieces in 2014. There is only one cigarette manufacturer operating in Trinidad: the West Indian Tobacco Co (WITCO), a 50.1% owned subsidiary of BAT. It is the dominant supplier with 95% of market volume.

Key Findings
