Red&White Cigarettes History!

Every hard core cigarette lover knows that Phillips Morris Tobacco Company is one of the largest and principal cigarette manufacturing companies of United States and of the world as a whole.
The company, which is also known as Altria group, which is now a leading cigarette manufacturer of the world has quite an interesting history. It goes back to 1847 when Philip Morris started selling tobacco and readymade cigarettes in a small shop at Bond Street in London. Who would have thought that this small cigarette selling business will one day become a world renowned cigarette brand? The business went on successfully till the death of Philip Morris after which it was taken over by Mr. Philip’s wife, Margaret and his brother Leopold. Leopold entered into a partnership with Joseph Grunebaum after the business went public and it was named, Philip Morris & Company and Grunebaum Ltd. The partnership between the two came to an end in 1885 and the company was renamed, Philip Morris & company Ltd.
