We are British American Tobacco Trading EOOD – the Bulgarian branch of one of the world's leading multinational company, British American Tobacco plc.
We have been operating in Bulgaria since 2007 with strong performance and as of 2017 we hold a leading position in the market following the acquisition of popular local brands. Our administrative office is located in the capital city of Bulgaria, Sofia.
In our portfolio we offer some of the most recognised international brands – Dunhill, Vogue, Lucky Strike and Rothmans. Also, as of 2018 we offer on the market the flagship THP of BAT – glo – a battery-powered device that heats specially-designed tobacco sticks.
All products that we market are manufactured within the EU. Our factories are located in Romania, Croatia, Poland and Hungary. Our products are delivered to our central warehouse in Sofia, from where they are distributed throughout the country. Our products can be found in different trade channels, such as Key Acocunts, Independent retailers and HoReCa outlets, including specially designated glo islands in the biggest shopping centers.
We successfully combine British American Tobacco’s over 100 years of experience and international approach with our local expertise and efforts to be successful on the market. Our plans for the future are to be successful by doing sustainable and responsible business.
