C and R are two very different sectors... Roark has been investing quite extensively in R in the US, CD&R had some amazing runs with R in Europe.
Less familiar with C, but L Catterton is the first specialist name that comes to my mind. That said, they do a lot of growth and I am not sure what you are exactly looking for (i.e. not sure they would to the 6bn+ carve out of Unilever that KKR did).

I'm grateful that I have two middle fingers, I only wish I had more.

As others have mentioned there tends to be a distinction between C&R (even if they are group together in IB coverage).

I can only speak to consumer groups, but there are pure play groups:

Catterton, TSG, VMG, 2x Consumer Growth, Kainos (yes, lots of drama, but some solid exits), Castanea, LNK (minority-focused), Arbor (food), Paine Schwartz

Then there are tons of shops that are generalists, but have a history of successful consumer-facing investments:

Gryphon, Snow Phipps, WindPoint, Leonard Green, Levine Leicthman, Littlejohn, Peak Rock, Sun Capital, H.I.G., Lasalle

-Not saying you want to work at some of those, but they are active in consumer and there are some really good names in there.

When you say not saying you want to work at some of those, what do you mean? Do some of those places have bad reputations for culture, W/L balance, etc.
