P&G is a Company of leaders that develop leaders. Since its establishment in 1837, P&G has recognized its employees as its most important asset. As a Company that operates under the philosophy of “growth from within”, P&G invests in the development of each and every one of its employees as a way to enable sustained long term growth.
Our story began with a simple handshake between two men: William Procter and James Gamble—a candle maker and a soap maker—who believed that everyday products could and should be of the highest quality and that the only way to run a business long-term is with honest and fair dealings. As partners, they put their soap and candle business on the map, spawning a period of steady growth. It was during these formative years the Procter & Gamble Company was born, more than 175 years ago.
P&G's history in Peru started in 1956 with the introduction of the laundry detergent Ace. In the next following years, P&G introduced global brands to the Peruvian market starting with Ariel, Pampers, Vick Vaporub, among others.
