There are products to be flogged and, Ms. Barberich added, “stars to be made.”

What does it mean by flogged here? I got these synonym: struck, propelled, electrical, beaten, flogged, chastised

Flogged is used here in wiktionary's sense 3 of flog, “(transitive, UK) To sell something.” That is, the sentence means there are products to be aggressively promoted and pushed into the faces of the public.
