Compiled by Luis Gonzalez: The following is a list of companies from the consumer goods sector. All of the stocks mentioned below have a track record of raising dividends more aggressively than their competitors over the last five years.

To control the quality of the list, we only focused on stocks with trailing twelve month payout ratios below 50% (to maximize the probability of finding companies that have the ability to keep paying their dividends).
 
We're not going to go into a detailed discussion for each company. The goal here is to give income-oriented investors a starting point for their own analysis. Full details below.
