Procter & Gamble Co. (P&G) is an American consumer goods corporation based in Cincinnati that manufactures a wide range of consumer products. The company has approximately 106,000 employees and its stock symbol on the NYSE is PG.
Procter & Gamble was started in 1837 as a family-owned soap and candle company in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company's current operations are divided into five areas:
|Net sales (US$M)||Net income (US$M)|
|Baby, Feminine and Family Care||11,877||11,991||1,170||1,052|
|Fabric and Home Care||11,618||11,660||1,831||1,643|
|Food & Beverage||3,801||4,139||384||332|
They got some strange press attention in the 80s when a rumor accused their corporate logo of being a satanic symbol. This charge has been denied by company officials as a coincidence, and no evidence linking the company to the Church of Satan or any other occult organization has ever been presented.
