The world's largest maker and distributor of consumer products - such as Crest, Gillette, Pampers and Pringles - has maintained steady growth. Profit climbed 19% last year, thanks to streamlined operations and a renewed focus on productivity.

In July, Dunkin' Donuts signed P&G to make and distribute its popular coffee to 40,000 retail and grocery outlets. Later this year, P&G will add Frederic Fekkai hair care products and spin off household coffee brand Folgers.
