Deploying MES to Support Production of Philip Morris International Reduced Risk Products
For more than a decade, Philip Morris International has dedicated significant resources to the development and scientific assessment of non-combustible alternatives to cigarettes. PMI refers to these products as Reduced Risk Products (RRPs) which have the potential to reduce individual risk and population harm in comparison to continued smoking cigarettes.
PMI is developing different platforms of RRPs, and several products have already been commercialized in 20+ markets worldwide.
In order to meet future demand, PMI is extending the production capacity in 2 plants near Bologna, Italy and enabling RRPs manufacturing in other factories.
