COUNTRY-OF-ORIGIN BRANDING ON AGENDA AT FOOD FUTURES CONFERENCE

The not-for-profit Australian Made Campaign put the spotlight on country-of-origin branding at the Northern Australia Food Futures Conference in Darwin this week.

Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive Ian Harrison stressed the importance of a unified approach to marketing and selling products and produce in Asia.

Addressing the President’s Lunch before the conference, Mr Ian Harrison called for a collaborative, cohesive approach to export marketing, incorporating a single brand and a single logo.

“The power of consistent branding and a global approach for our food exporters cannot be overstated,” Mr Harrison said.

“Australia’s strong nation brand is a valuable asset, particularly in Asia, for exporters of Australian products and produce, and the premiums that are available to Australian goods in the market are significant.”

Mr Harrison said that Australia’s registered country-of-origin certification trademark, the green-and-gold Australian Made, Australian Grown logo, with it’s established links to Government and wide recognition throughout Asia, was the obvious symbol to make the connection to “Brand Australia.”

More than 2000 Australian businesses currently use the logo on over 15,000 products sold here and around the world.

Last week it was announced that 200 Australian Made branded stores would launch in China next year, selling only certified Australian products and produce.
