What is the classification of "Major"[edit]

Please specify what constitutes a Major tobacco company please. VERTott 17:43, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi, the five companies in the template together control around four-fifths of the global cigarette market ex. China (which is controlled by a state monopoly), and in the industry are generally regarded as the 'majors': [1] Rangoon11 (talk) 18:08, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick reply, I think it would be helpful, in the interests of clarity that a definition of major is given, to avoid the addition of minor companies. As an alternative perhaps the template could be re-named to "Big Five tobacco companies" VERTott 18:15, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes that's fine with me, I will make the change now.Rangoon11 (talk) 18:24, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
I do think that is better. VERTott 19:39, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
