Proctor & Gamble

One of the worlds oldest brands!

MMDE: Proctor & Gamble

Current: Procter & Gamble

More branding anomalies, and this time it's going right back to 1837 with one of the world's oldest - P&G.

Founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, the massive American consumer goods corporation is famous the world over having taken it's name from the two founders - but was it William Proctor and James Gamble or William Procter and James Gamble?

Businesses recognise the value of a brand, and will never do anything to cause confusion in their customers minds without a really good reason. P&G have a century and a half's worth of marketing knowledge, so know this more than most.
