BAT Kenya refutes claims made in various media channels that it’s Battle of Minds student competition serves to advertise and promote its tobacco products.

A spokesperson for BAT Kenya plc said:

“Battle of Minds is the BAT Group’s global internship competition designed to offer graduates who are 18 years and above, an opportunity to gain real practical work experience. Our aim is to strengthen the company’s talent pool and develop the next generation of leaders. “Established to attract, celebrate and support the best and brightest young talent, the programme is conducted in a transparent and responsible manner, and in accordance with all applicable rules on tobacco advertising and promotion.

“In order to progress in the competition, participants are asked to devise and pitch an innovative business case, unrelated to tobacco. The programme is in no way intended to promote BAT Kenya’s products.”
