Consumer Staples

Companies, industries, and products that are used for personal and household purposes. Consumer staples include food, alcohol, tobacco, medicine, clothing, and so forth. Companies that sell consumer staples have a reputation of resistance to economic downturn, but this is not always the case. In any event, they are often sold long-term investments.
