Consumer Education Trust (CONSENT)
Consumer Education Trust (CONSENT) is an independent civil society organisation founded in 2002. The organisation strives for a socially informed, equitable and just society through consumer awareness, empowerment, advocacy and advisory services, promotion of ethical practices among businesses and engagement of policymakers to enact pro-people policies for present and future generations. Fifty one members guide and drive the agenda which is implemented by a team of dynamic, qualified, dedicated and experienced staff. Under a campaign called 'Access to Justice for Social Policy Change' CONSENT collects consumer complaints and concerns as evidence that may be used to campaign for change in national and local social policies and services. 'Pleasure on the Plate Safety in the Mind' is a food safety campaign designed to conduct market surveillance in food markets and eating houses/places, grade them from a consumer perspective and campaign for better food standards and services through a dialogue between policymakers, regulators, businesses and consumers.
