Key P&G Suppliers Honored with 2024 Partner of the Year Awards

Two round blue logos are side by side.

Company recognizes top-performing suppliers committed to sustainable partnerships for growth.

This year, P&G celebrates the impact of our diverse network of external business partners or suppliers and recognizes the very best with a P&G Partner of the Year Award. This award goes to suppliers that have gone above and beyond in delivering sustained value to our business and the consumers P&G serves. This year, P&G also proudly recognized a distinguished group of five suppliers with its Supplier Impact Award for their key contributions in the areas of environmental sustainability and equality and inclusion, which are fundamental to marketplace success.

Two round blue logos are side by side. Blue text says, "Partner of the year recognition. Sustainable partnerships for growth."

While the contributions of P&G’s more than 60,000 external business partners (EBP) are not always readily apparent to those who use P&G brands, these valued suppliers provide essential materials, packaging, equipment, transportation, contract manufacturing and logistics, as well as IT, capital, marketing and other services which enable us to delight and serve consumers around the world every day.

Together with our valued partners, we are creating an integrated, agile and robust supply network where P&G, customers, physical distribution partners and suppliers interact seamlessly and efficiently to serve consumers. Together with our partners, we can have even larger, positive impact on the communities where we operate in service to the world’s consumers.

These companies have been among the very best in delivering sustained and exceptional contributions, and we celebrate them for being integral members of our supply ecosystem. The partnership and collaboration with our supply ecosystem is essential to win – we innovate, solve problems and grow our mutual business interests, together. These Business Partners enabled us to service all of our stakeholders better than anyone else, and we thank them for that.
