In 1951, the Federal Consumers' Union (UFC) was born. It was then the primary consumer defense association in France. Today, it's the one with essentially the most members: 140,000. It can be recognized for its month-to-month journal What to decide on, which publishes nice surveys and compares merchandise and labels.
But, seventy years after its creation and regardless of its present battles – particularly when it assaults the digital giants on the difficulty of non-public information – the association suffers from an getting older picture and is struggling to recruit younger volunteers.
Journalist Sevin Rey-Sahin retraced for M The journal of the World the historical past of this iconic construction. In this episode of the “L'Heure du Monde” podcast, she deciphers the functioning of the UFC-Que Choisir and its challenges for the long run.
An episode produced by Jeanne Boëzec, directed by Amandine Robillard and introduced by Morgane Tual.
