Consumer non-durables

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

Non-durable goods, such as food, drink, or tobacco, designed for use by final consumers. Some of these are in fact purchased by businesses, for example food for works canteens. Non-durables are not the same as perishable goods. Some non-durables such as wine actually have quite long shelf lives: they are non-durable in the sense that they can only be used once when they are finally consumed.
