Founded

Due to poor quality products, unsafe food issues, and inferior services, there are deteriorating effects on consumers and the natural environment. There is indeed an urgent need for better and wider understanding of consumer education amongst general consumers, businesspersons and authorities.  MCU therefore was formed on 18th November 2012 with 15 EC members from different professional backgrounds such as medical, legal, educational, agricultural, engineering, chemical, and economic and so on.

The Organizational Registration has been achieved from Ministry of Home Affairs on 29th June 2017 with Registration number (1/Local/0485). Myanmar Consumers Union has been a full member of Consumers International on 6th April 2018.
