SUPPORTING AUSTRALIAN MADE WEEK
If every household spent an extra $10 a week on Australian Made products, an additional $5 billion would be generated in our economy, creating 11,000 new jobs according to Roy Morgan Research in 2020.
Australian Made and Owned.
We all know and recognise the green and gold triangle symbol easily. It is the mark of true authenticity that sets an Australian brand apart from the next.
More and more Australians are increasingly concerned about where the products they are purchasing come from, but more importantly who is benefitting from the sale.
The Australian Made Australian Grown logo certifies that a product is predominately manufactured in Australia. Because of strenuous regulations around quality, safety and environmentalism, choosing to buy Australian made and owned benefits you, the Australian economy, and the environment.
Australian Made equals better quality.
To ensure that your purchases are one of the highest global standards, choose Australian made and owned alternatives. Australia has one of the highest standards for safety and quality assurance in the world.
Products proudly displaying the Australian Made logo must be significantly transformed, processed, or manufactured here in Australia. This means that certified products are subject to national safety and quality assurance regulations. When you choose to buy Australian made and owned, you’re choosing to buy safer, higher quality, more trustworthy products.
Supporting our Australian Economy.
Buying an Australian alternative to a mass-produced product directly supports the Australian economy. Your purchase choice supports local jobs and economic development in Australia. It delivers a wealth of positive outcomes to families across the country.
The Australian Made Campaign launched a new initiative that states, “It’s never been more important to buy Australian than right now”. The campaign encourages Australians to buy Australian made and owned, aiding our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. To strengthen our local manufacturing capabilities, we have to direct our dollars into the hands of local organisations.
Ethical Choices with Australian Made and Owned.
We all want to put our money to work by making ethical choices, from the supermarket to furnishings.
A recent survey found that most people look for sustainably made products regardless of their salary bracket. It’s heartening to see that a wide range of people care deeply about sustainability and want to effect change by being selective with their consumption. Interestingly, manufacturers are motivated to be more sustainable as one in three people are prepared to pay more for an ethically made product.
Logistically, buying Australian made reduces greenhouse gas emissions. That’s because the products are transformed, processed or manufactured right here in Australia!
Australian Made and Owned Guarantees.
When buying an Australian product, you can be rest assured that you are protected from the common product pitfalls. Buying Australian made and owned guarantees you the following protections, according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission:
Products must be of acceptable quality, meaning:
- Safe, made to last, and without faults
- Look acceptable
- Do all the things they’d reasonably be expected to do
What can you do to support? There is many local businesses in desperate need of your support. Buy Australian Made and Owned products.
