Emerging CPG brands face innumerable challenges as they compete for shelf space and shopper’s attention. Walk into any brick and mortar (B&M) retailer, and on average, you'll find 35,000 products (mostly unknown) on their shelves – each of them championed by anonymous dreamers, believers, and risk-takers who wake up every day hoping to gain market acceptance and the glory of CPG stardom.
