The Consumer Council helps cut the cost of the summer food shop
It’s World Consumer Rights Day on 15 March and the Consumer Council is joining with many other consumer bodies around the world to highlight this year’s theme of healthy, affordable diets.
Now the weather has turned frosty and people are pulling out the winter woollies, the Consumer Council is urging consumers to get a copy of its ‘Weather the Winter’ leaflet to be winter ready in the event of severe weather.
The Consumer Council has today revealed that despite positive signs emerging in the wider economy, these are not filtering through to consumers, with 70 per cent not yet feeling the green shoots of economic recovery.
Opinion – Rick Hill, Chair Of The Consumer Council On Future Consumer Representation Arrangements In Northern Ireland
The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) consultation on the future of consumer representation in Northern Ireland has now closed and as readers will expect, the Consumer Council has submitted an in depth response. However, what has been really encouraging is that so many others took time to set out their reasons why consumer representation in Northern Ireland should be strengthened - not diminished or dismantled.
While this Monday is heralded to be ‘Blue Monday’, the most depressing day of the calendar year, the Consumer Council has said there are 1,628 reasons why it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom.
