A small-cap FMCG stock is a share from any company listed on the stock market that deals in fast-moving consumer goods with a market capitalization of under Rs 5,000 crores.
FMCG or ‘Fast-Moving Consumer Goods’ are non-durable goods sold quickly at a relatively low price. They not only have a low shelf life but also a high turnover rate in stores due to extraordinary demand and being perishable in nature.
FMCGs include cosmetic products, perishable food items like fruits and vegetables, over the counter medication, cleaning products, baked goods, toiletries, and office supplies, among other non-durables.
