Consumers International is the membership organisation for consumer groups around the world.

We work together, alongside a range of passionate partners and members, to drive change in the global marketplace that individual members cannot achieve alone.

Everyday, around the world our members achieve life enhancing improvements for, and with consumers. Many have been the trusted, leading national voices for their consumers for decades and are responsible for dramatic improvements to people's lives. Our greatest strength is the depth and breadth of our membership, who we work with on coordinated campaigns and international advocacy.


Consumers International Members are pioneering organisations around the world with a proven record of achieving impact in consumer protection and empowerment.  They are independent consumer groups, trusted by consumers in their country or region.  They actively work across borders, with members and trusted partners to shape the future of the marketplace to be safe, fair and sustainable for all.
