With offices in Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris, foodwatch is an international, not-for-profit
organisation that fights for consumers’ right to safe and high-quality food. We see ourselves as
the “public pressure group” for consumer protection, exposing abuses in the food sector and
naming those responsible.
We have the freedom to do so because we are independent of
government and the food industry and financed through membership fees and donations.
We do not promote a certain way of eating but instead fight back against anti-consumer
business practices and advocate for more consumer rights in the agrifood sector. As outspoken
proponents of consumer protection, we ask the difficult questions and focus on awarenessraising
campaign work. Experience has shown: Pro-consumer changes are only made when
public pressure forces the respective companies or policymakers to react.
