Driven by passionate people and a common purpose, P&G has been renowned for bringing trusted brands to our consumers in South Africa since 1995.
Procter and Gamble (P&G) was founded in the US in 1837 by two men who met by chance. William Procter and James Gamble were from England and Ireland respectively and were on separate journeys through the United States when the challenges of travel led both of them to Cincinnati. They might never have met had they not married sisters – Olivia and Elizabeth Norris – whose father convinced them to become business partners. In 1837, their humble but bold new enterprise called Procter & Gamble was born. What began as a small, family-oriented soap and candle company; grew and thrived exponentially, encouraged by P&G’s Purpose of providing branded products and services of superior quality and value.
