The maker of Pampers, Tide, and Gillette products has suffered from lackluster growth since the Great Recession, hurt by an era that has seen consumers get fussier and more frugal. P&G is also dealing with a struggling beauty business and a strong dollar that has dented its international results. In the last two years, P&G has been cutting costs, simplified its organizational structure and sharpened its focus on its biggest, best-known brands. Last summer, P&G said it would spur growth by shedding about 100 brands (it has already sold off Duracell batteries and Iams pet food) to focus on 65 top brands. including Tide, Crest toothpaste and Pampers.
