The drink’s industry is considered as one of the most dynamic and growing ones in the world today. As a result of this, consumers of drinks may be exposed to the consumption of defective and substandard drinks. In this light, the principal objective of this research is to evaluate the extent to which consumer protection laws in Cameroon safeguard consumers against the consumption of adulterated and contaminated drinks produced not only by the drinks industries but also those produced locally. The methodology utilised to attain this main objective and to address the problem is the critical analyses of the existing legal initiatives and institutional frame-works that regulates the production of drinks in Cameroon. The work reveals that in spite of the existence of a plethora of legislations that regulate this sector of the economy, consumers of drinks have not been fully accorded the full protection they deserve as the courts have been lukewarm to grant judgments in their favour coupled with the inadequacies of the laws in this domain. As a result of this, the study puts forth a set of recommendations but focusing on the revision of the existing legal initiatives especially 2011 legal framework on consumer protection that regulates consumer protection in Cameroon.
