With 7.8bn humans in the world, someone needs to provide for them. Enter fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). These products encompass stuff that's not durable - goods such as packaged foods, toiletries, over-the-counter drugs, cans of soda, packets of cigarettes. You name it - a lot of items on the shelf come under this category.
