Incubators/Accelerators for CPGs?

I'm interested in starting an incubator/accelerator for CPG's/physical goods and wondering if you know of any that currently exist?

I haven't been able to find (m)any that are specifically designed for physical consumer goods.

I've found Telluride's Venture Accelerator which focuses on outdoor gear (http://www.tellurideva.com/), and The Brandery, which focuses on consumer-focused web startups (http://brandery.org/).

Additionally, if you have a CPG startup, would you be willing to chat on the phone with me about some of the problems you've faced?

Not sure if you're interested in corporate accelerators but Coca Cola launched an accelerator last year.
