Proctor & Gamble is a multinational consumer goods company that offers a wide range of goods across different categories. Many products that the company sells are considered consumer staples such as beauty and grooming products, household care products, and over the counter medications including big name brands like Crest, Oral B, and Vicks.
In a global slowdown some investors will look to consumer staple companies as having the potential to weather an economic downturn. The thinking is that consumers are still expected to prioritise buying consumer staples even in tougher economic times.
