It’s time to level up those cosmetics in your vanity and replace the junk food in your kitchen pantry with delicious options made from ingredients we can actually pronounce. Consumer packaged goods (CPG) brands are hitting the market to offer cleaner, healthier and more unique products than ever before. Not only that, but they are delivering on what consumers say they want most – sustainability.
