The Procter & Gamble Company hosted its annual supplier awards event on Tuesday 3rd November recognizing the company's top performing suppliers. GoIndustry DoveBid has been granted this award in recognition of the high standard of work carried out over several years. Out of 80,000 suppliers globally, only 55 have been awarded this status. "P&G's growth strategy is to touch and improve more consumers' lives in more parts of the world more completely," said Bob McDonald, P&G's president and chief executive officer, while speaking to suppliers attending the Company's annual supplier awards dinner. "This strategy is inspired by P&G's Purpose and it can only be executed in partnership with our suppliers. We are all focused on touching and improving lives, which requires us - together -- to innovate, to streamline and improve the supply chain, to simplify the way we work, and to create sustainable solutions that improve lives today and for generations to come." From market changing innovation to supply chain excellence, our supplier partners are foundational for building a stronger future," said Rick Hughes, vice president of Global Purchases.
