Manufacturers have cause to celebrate Australia Day

 

Australia Day is a great time for all of us to celebrate the things our country does best, says Australian Made, Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison.
 
This includes manufacturing high quality products and growing delicious, nutritious food. 
 
This Australia Day, the Australian Made Campaign is encouraging shoppers to celebrate our great Aussie traditions with equally great Aussie-made and Aussie-grown products.
 
“We have some of the best products and produce in the world, and we should be proud of that,” says Mr Harrison.
 
“Australia Day is a great time to celebrate that, and the people behind them.
 
“When you buy Aussie-made and grown products, not only are you getting great quality, but your purchase is also supporting jobs at a local farm or manufacturer, and there’s nothing more Aussie than backing your mates.” 
 
The green-and-gold Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo is the best way for consumers to be sure the products they are purchasing are genuinely Australian. 
 
The AMAG logo is the only registered certification trademark for Australian country of origin claims.
 
“When you see the AMAG logo on products or produce, you know you’re buying genuine Aussie,” Mr Harrison says.
 
“The best thing of all is that you can make every day Australia Day – look for the green-and-gold kangaroo logo.”
