AUSTRALIAN BUSINESSES HAVE GOOD REASON TO CELEBRATE

Family Business Australia (FBA) and the Australian Made Campaign are calling on businesses around the country to promote their heritage and contribution to their local communities in the lead up to Family Business Day. 

Family Business Day is held annually on September 19. 

More than two thirds of all Australian businesses are family businesses, and many of those make and grow the products they sell in Australia, keeping local farms and manufacturing plants in business and local people in jobs. 

Family farmers and manufacturers are encouraged to use the hashtags #madebyourfamily and #grownbyourfamily to help promote their products on social media over the next couple of weeks. 

To find products made and grown locally by family businesses, consumers can look for the FBA and Australian Made, Australian Grown kangaroo logos on products in-store, search for the hashtags online or visit www.fambiz.org.au and www.australianmade.com.au.
