Fast-moving consumer goods consist of products people use for everyday life. They can be broadly grouped into three categories namely: Household care, Personal care, and Food and beverages.
These categories vary in how they perform in FMCG distribution business. They do differently in different regions of the country and at different times.

Brand Marketing: Is it a product that the producers put marketing effort into?
Pricing: Is it a good value for money?
