PROCTER & GAMBLE

Procter & Gamble Website: https://us.pg.com/

The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) is an American multi-national consumer goods corporation headquartered in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, founded in 1837 by British American William Procter and Irish American James Gamble. It primarily specializes in a wide range of cleaning agents and personal care and hygienics products. Before the sale of Pringles to the Kellogg Company, its product portfolio also included foods, snacks and beverages.  

As of 2015, 21 of P&G's brands have more than a billion dollars in net annual sales. Most of these brands-including Bounty, Crest, and Tide-are global products available on several continents. P&G's products are available in North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.  P&G's baby, feminine, and family-care division accounted for 29% of the company's total net sales, the highest of all its divisions. The division includes Always, Bounty, Charmin, Puffs, and Pampers. 

Procter & Gamble spends great portion of its income in advertising various brands in the US and around the world, making it the top advertiser in the countries (including USA). Manufacturing operations are based in 27 countries around the world. In 2014, P&G recorded $83.1 billion in sales. 

On August 1, 2014, P&G announced it was streamlining the company, dropping and selling off around 100 brands from its product portfolio to focus on the remaining 65 brands, which produced 95% of the company's profits. A.G. Lafley-the company's chairman, president, and CEO until October 31, 2015-said the future P&G would be "a much simpler, much less complex company of leading brands that's easier to manage and operate". David Taylor is the current president and CEO of Procter & Gamble.
