This year, Procter & Gamble is turning 185 years old. To celebrate, the leading Happi Top 50 company is showcasing its most memorable historical moments through a #PGHeritage series on social media.
According to P&G Company Historian and Corporate Storyteller Shane Meeker, in 1955 a P&G executive commented: “No company can afford the luxury of rediscovering its own prior knowledge.”  
“Today, our rich 185-year history continues to inspire and guide our employees as they develop the unique solutions needed for the future,” said Meeker.
Happi obtained some historical photos and fun facts from Meeker about the household and personal care brand’s leading developments along the way, spanning from Ivory to Old Spice.
