The corner was unveiled by Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) officials led by Secretary Ramon Lopez, Consumer Protection Group Undersecretary Atty. Ruth Castelo, Consumer Protection and Advocacy Bureau Director IV Domingo Tolentino, and Robinsons Supermarket Corporation (RSC) and Rustan Supercenters Inc (RSCI) Managing Director Jody Gadia.
The Consumer Corner provides everyday shoppers with ready access to DTI consumer-related information materials, which can help them to make intelligent purchases, and enable them to assert their rights and exercise their responsibilities as consumers.

“The consumers and shoppers are at the heart of our business. Aside from advocating wellness and a healthy lifestyle among our patrons, Robinsons Supermarket is also about espousing smart shopping, especially among families. This partnership with DTI will hopefully go a long way towards providing our customers with relevant and timely information, empowering them to become more informed and responsible shoppers,” said Jody Gadia, RSC and RSCI Managing Director.
