British American Tobacco (Uganda) Limited, incorporated under the Companies Act (cap. 85), is the leading tobacco growing and processing company in Uganda. Operating as a subsidiary of BAT Investments (UK) Limited, the history of BAT Uganda (BATU) dates far back to 1927 when commercial varieties of tobacco were introduced in the country. The company then proceeded to build its first cigarette factory in East Africa at Jinja the following year. After acquiring the East African Tobacco Company in 1949, BATU became the main operating company of BAT in East Africa. Its current brands include Benson & Hedges, Embassy, Rex, Sportsman and many others which make BAT Uganda one of the largest tax contributors in the state.

In July 1988, BAT Uganda adopted the new British American Tobacco universal corporate identity and became known as British American Tobacco Uganda. Two years afterwards, in 2000, BATU resolved to become a public company leading to its listing on the USE.
