The Consumer Council of Fiji has officially launched its new logo and offices today 8th February, 2019.
Speaking at the launch, Council CEO Seema Shandil said the new logo signifies the Council’s continued relevance as a modern consumer organisation” —
“It reflects what the Council is today, what it stands for, and symbolizes a dynamic and unswerving commitment to ensuring the wellbeing and rights of its biggest stakeholder- the Consumers,” Ms Shandil said.
“Our new branding will create an identity for the consumers through which we will increase consumer confidence in the abilities of the Council and their safety in the marketplace. This is especially important as we consider the impact that online marketplaces are having on the evolution of consumer rights.”
Ms Shandil said the Council’s new offices would enhance the Council’s service delivery and role in consumer advocacy with improved access and increased mediation rooms for consumers.The new location is also disability friendly and offers easy access for our consumers who are confined to wheelchairs and who have difficulty moving. In the past the Council understands that a lack of access may have hindered the differently abled from filing their
complaints face to face.
“The new office and new logo also represent the Council’s push to incorporate new concepts and innovate on the foundation of ideas already laid in the fight for consumer rights. It will give consumers new hope and a new breathe of life as soon as they open the door.
“The Council is hopeful that the modern touch of this office, its features and our services, will allow us to effectively champion the rights of all our consumers.”
The chief guest for the event was Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Local Government, Housing and Community Development Hon. Premila Kumar
