Rochester, NY – Diamond Packaging was recognized by Procter & Gamble as one of its top performing external business partners during an awards ceremony last night as the conclusion of the P&G Supplier and Agency Summit. The objective of the annual summit is to recognize and celebrate those key contributors who have demonstrated partner excellence. This year more than 350 companies and agencies partners were represented at the awards dinner.

“We are thrilled to have won this award,” said Karla Fichter, Chief Executive Officer of Diamond Packaging. “Our partnership with Procter & Gamble is especially rewarding because of our shared commitment to innovation and sustainability.”

Diamond received P&G’s Corporate Supplier Excellence Award for performing consistently at high levels within P&G's internal performance management system.

Diamond was recognized for providing superior packaging solutions for multiple products lines, including P&G's Gillette® division (blades, razors), Old Spice® and Secret® Clinical Strength antiperspirants and deodorants, and Febreze® candles. Diamond has also been instrumental in the success of several P&G product launches, including its recent Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ global launch.

“We need partnerships with retail customers, investors, business partners, agencies and suppliers that are built upon the fundamental idea of improving lives,” said Bob McDonald, P&G's chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer.

“We view our suppliers, agencies and external business partners as an extension of our Company and critical to helping us achieve our Company's Purpose of touching and improving the lives of the world's consumers,” said Rick Hughes, chief purchasing officer. “We expect the best from our business partners, and we are focused on growing long-term relationships that are sustainable, innovative and create joint value.”

“Our external business partners bring ideas, technology, creativity, diversity and innovation to our business. I am truly grateful for their commitment and dedication to helping P&G fulfill its Purpose of touching and improving the lives of the world's consumers, now and for generations to come,” said McDonald.
