The Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control

International Tobacco Growers exposed

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK) has updated the story behind the International Tobacco Growers’ Association (ITGA), revealing it as one of the organizations "funded and directed by tobacco companies to influence policy makers and the public in favor of the tobacco industry".

"For example, the ITGA claims to represent and promote the cause of 'millions of tobacco farmers' around the world," says the CTFK fact sheet.

 "The reality, however, is that ITGA uses tobacco farmers to represent the interests of a small number of transnational tobacco manufacturers."
