The existing oral care and feminine care businesses will become part of P&G’s beauty and grooming business unit.
The personal health care, pet care and snacks businesses will become part of P&G’s household care business.
The moves follow the retirement of global health and well-being vice chairman Robert A. Steele, who is leaving the FMCG company in September after 35 years.
He has been responsible for oral care, feminine care, personal health care, pet care and snacks and until his retirement will serve as vice chairman of health care strategy, reporting to P&G chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer Robert A. McDonald.
P&G says the moves will “help ensure each of these businesses continues to get the full investment required for growth globally while benefitting from synergies with P&G’s larger businesses”.
A spokesman for P&G says that the restructure will have no implications on how the UK business operates.
