THE Consumer Council of Fiji has sent out mobile units to various locations in the Western Division in an effort to raise more awareness on the council's roles and responsibilities.
The council's information and media manager, Dorine Narayan said the mobile units were a service provided by the council to reach out to consumers who were unable to visit its office in Lautoka because of time or transportation constraints.
Officials from the council office in Lautoka will be at various locations in Sigatoka and Nadi this week.
The units will be outside Courts Fiji in Sigatoka Town on 21st February from 11am-3pm and outside MH Supermarkets in Namaka on 22nd February and Nadi Town on 23rd February from 9.30am-3pm.
"The objective of these mobile units is to provide an opportunity for consumers residing in these areas to be able to access the council's services," Ms Narayan said. "Our team of officers assist consumers with complaints, advice, consumer issues affecting them, give out brochures, posters and educational material."
Ms Narayan urged consumers in Sigatoka, Namaka and Nadi to make use of this opportunity.
