William Procter and James Gamble established this company in 1837. Specialization of P&G is in a wide range of cleaning agents, personal care and hygienic products and its product portfolio also included foods, snacks and beverages were also there in the product portfolio of P&G but that was before the sale of Pringles to the Kellogg Company.


How big mammoth this company is can be explained by its presence across the globe which is over 180 countries. 90% of its business is represented by its top 50 brands and this clearly explains its renewed plans of focussing on them shifting from a more complex company to a simpler one. The company is an amalgation of newly acquired brands like Gillette and old consistent brands like Tide. diversification of Procter and Gamble protects it from a sub-sector slowdown and this has been accounted as one of the main reason for P&Gs sustainability in long-term.

In 2016, P&G recorded $65.299 billion in deals. On August 1, 2014, P&G reported that it will drop and auction around 100 brands from its item portfolio to streamline the organization with a specific end goal to concentrate on the rest of the 65 brands, which represented 95% of the organization's benefits. A.G. Lafley who was the organization's director, president, and Chief until October 31, 2015, said the future P&G would be "a substantially more straightforward, significantly less unpredictable organization of driving brands that is simpler to oversee and work".
