Freshers' Fare - 02/09/2004
 
Consumer Power Takes a New Turn at the Start of the Academic Year. Demonstrating at Every Meal- in a Peaceful and Effective Manner
Freshers Fare


Another population of new customers in the food and commodities markets will come into play at the start of the university and college term.

Many students will find they need to be economic in their choices but will also be seeking information on labels of the value of their choices as well as on the prices and special offers. Catering and socializing will also offer opportunities to express citizen leverage in consumer power, and its effects on global and local politics and economics and the significance of harvests, food, farming, and the environment, with all the corollaries in the health and well-being of all animals-which includes the human kind.

VEGA’s website will be posting frequent bulletins on current affairs in these contexts. Keep in touch with us and tell your friends. Every time you pay at the till or for a food item you demonstrate consumer power noticed in the market and affecting primary producers and manufacturers. Their enterprise and endeavours will be misdirected if customers don’t take care. We aim to provide information to them and all people to illuminate choices and refusals.

Good luck!
