COFEK is Kenyaâ€™s independent, self-funded, multi-sectoral and non-profit society, registered on 26th March 2010 as a membership society under Cap. 108 Laws of Kenya. Our members are ordinary consumers and professionals from various walks of life and areas spread across the country who see the need to own and support COFEK vision, mission and values.
We boast of a Council of 20 officials who represent the Federation at the national level. Those Council members are led by the Chairperson, Secretary General and other officials (professionals) heading specific sectors such as Security; Banking; ICT; Roads; Transport; Water; Energy; Agriculture; Education; Tourism; Food; Health and drugs; Supermarkets; Electronics; Environment; Aviation; Automobiles; Insurance; Local Authorities, among others.
We work with Government of Kenya, mainstream media, trade unions, regulatory agencies, private sector and other non-state actors in achieving consumer solutions and more so on restoring consumer pride and confidence. Our advocacy is based on authentic information as backed by continuous research. Our work is informed by the need to empower the consumer through requisite legislation, policies, civic awareness on consumer rights and other attendant issues.
Our diverse expert-filled Governing Council assists our lean secretariat to carry out the enormous task of salvaging Kenya's consumer interests that have remained under attack since the country attained independence in 1963.
As such, our work emphasizes the need for a conducive environment to allow for competitive trade and business. We strongly believe that what is good for the consumer is good for business. We fight monopolies and price control tendencies. We fight counterfeits and unfair business practices. We sound alerts on market recalls. All in all, we yearn to see the 100% restoration of consumer pride and confidence in Kenya!
We cannot achieve this gigantic fete on our own. We need your moral and material support. Either join us and/or donate to our work and put a smile on a consumer today. Welcome aboard.
