CFTC to commemorate World Consumer Rights Day

The World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD) falls on 15th March of every year and is an occasion for celebration and solidarity within the international consumer movement.

This year’s theme for the WCRD is “Healthy Diets”, a theme which originates from the fact that unhealthy diets are linked to health threats.


In Malawi, however, the theme has been localised to “A healthy diet - my right", a theme that provides an opportunity for Malawian consumers to demand protection from substandard food products including counterfeits.
