FAMILY BUSINESS DAY: A CAUSE WORTH CELEBRATING

Every year, the Australian Made Campaign encourages businesses across Australia to promote their heritage on Family Business Day, held on the 19th of September.

2016’s Family Business Day was a resounding success, with events held across the country, celebrating and promoting the things that make our businesses great.

It’s an annual opportunity for all family and non-family members of the family business, as well as stakeholders and local governments to come together and recognise this important sector.

The day might have passed this year, but the cause is year-round: 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.

Many of the country’s largest and most loved companies started off as a family business including AustralianMade licensees Coopers Brewery, Willow, AH Beard, Ugg Australia and Akubra Hats.

Family farmers and manufacturers are encouraged to use the hashtags #madebyourfamily and #grownbyourfamily to help promote their products on social media or use the special social media tiles created for the day.

To find products made and grown locally by family businesses, consumers can look for the FBA emblem 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.
