Federation of German Consumer Organizations - vzbv

Date Founded: 

The Federation of German Consumer Organizations - vzbv - is a non-governmental organization acting as an umbrella for 42 German consumer associations. We represent the interests of consumers in public and vis-à-vis legislators, the private sector and civil society.


Our goal is to protect and empower the consumer. We do this by lobbying and campaigning at national and European levels, by taking collective legal action on behalf of consumers and by ensuring that our message receives broad media coverage. We also provide professional training for the staff of consumer organizations.
