HISTORYIn 1837, Procter and Gamble was founded in Cincinnati by William Procter, a candle maker, and brother-in-law Gamble, a soap maker. Their joint venture started one of the most influential companies in all American industry. The company's first product was Ivory soap, introduced in 1879. For generations, Procter and Gamble has been built by scientists and consumer researchers; the latter finding out what the public wants and needs, and the former improving upon old products or inventing new ones to match these needs and desires. Several products were developed during the time period when William Procter's son, William Alexander Procter, took over the company (18901907.) William Cooper Procter began working in the company in 1883 and served as president of the company from 1907-1930. During this time, the company's sales rose from $20 million to $200 million. This was a period of growth in which the company built several plants: five in the United States, one in Canada, and one in England.

William Cooper Procter was a pioneer in many labor relation reforms. Procter and Gamble became the first American company to give half holidays on Saturdays and set up a profitsharing plan in the same year. Company policy was reworked in 1920, so that all employees were guaranteed 48 weeks of work per year. Other firsts include a disability pension plan, a life insurance plan, and employee representation on the board of directors. Today, P&G; goods are found in 98 percent of all American households. With additional products are sold worldwide, from the Arabian Peninsula to Argentina to India, the company remains committed to marketing superior products

SWOT ANALYSIS OF P&GP&G is a Global Company reaching out to almost 82 countries. A specialized company with a singular, steadfast focuses on the advancement of skin care and other consumer goods around the globe. It has a very strong global brand image. Since products of P&G have been used for more than 150 years, thus the brand loyalty among its buyers does exist. P&G s goal is simple, improving the quality of human life by providing high quality, safe and effective FMCGs, therefore making life easier for so many people around the globe.


The biggest strength of P&G as a company is having vast range of skin care product line including creams, lotions, shampoos, liquid cleansers and etc. It has a very strong brand name. Due to its strong brand repute, P&G has a huge customer base. The customers of P&G are extremely brand loyal and have less tendency of switching on to some other brand. P&G is always bringing innovations to sustain its customer base.

WEAKNESSThe major weakness of P&G is being less innovative than its major competitor Unilever. Some of the P&G products have failed in certain geographic areas, as the research for those products is not

conducted in all the geographic areas where the product has to be soled. For example, Oil of Olay failed in Pakistan, Camay failed here as well.

OPPORTUNITIESSome opportunities include the unexplored areas in the markets where P&G can sell its product. One of the opportunities for P&G is to invest in the segment for children. Another opportunity for P&G is to introduce food and beverages for Pakistani market, keeping in view the tastes and preferences of the people here.


Unilever is the biggest threat for P&G as that is the most aggressive competitor of P&G. With the advent of new FMCG providers in market with less priced products, people in markets like Pakistan where due to inflation customers can switch on to other low price products. As P&G is operating globally therefore the regulations of Government in different geographical areas may affect the policies of P&G. As the world economy is going through the unprecedented economy crisis that may prove to be a threat for all the businesses being operated globally

FAILED PRODUCTCAMAY SOAP PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND PRODUCT DETAILSCamay is rich, creamy beauty soap. Camay is available in different fragrances: Camay is the name of a scented hand and body soap, made by Procter & Gamble. It was first introduced in 1926 and marketed as a "white, pure soap for women," as many soaps of the time were colored to mask impurities. Camay's slogan for many years was "Camay: the soap for beautiful women." It was later replaced with "For your most beautiful complexion at every age." Camay is still produced although many stores in the United States do not sell it anymore, as it has fallen out of popularity in recent years. Since it is still quite popular abroad, in the U.S. it is often found at immigrant-

oriented ethnic stores. For many years, Camay was a major sponsor of the soap opera Search for Tomorrow. Camay Soap was introduced in the USA in 1926 and in the UK in 1958. It was one of the first beauty soaps to be marketed in post-war Britain. The brand was seen as a luxurious and exclusive soap, which provided the ultimate in feminine glamour. In those early days, Camay became renowned for its use of exclusive French perfume, its pink colour and its rich lather. The name Camay was derived from the bar's own cameo stamp. "Camay" was coined from the French word, "camee," which means cameo, the jewel.

PRODUCT FAILURECamay was introduced in Pakistan. Extensive advertisement was done for the products. The soap was introduced with different scents to ensure variety. But Camay became unsuccessful in coping up the expectations of the customers. Therefore it was failed. One of the complaints of the customers was that Camay is highly soluble soap, due to which it is consumed highly and is not a cost efficient product. Camay failed to compete with Lux, Capri, Dove, Imperial leather etc. Even the different scents of the product could not contribute to its success. Customers did not accept such soap and ultimately P&G had to face a decline in the growth stage of PLC of Camay.
