WHY YOU SHOULD BUY AUSTRALIAN MADE THIS CHRISTMAS

The Australian Made Campaign is encouraging consumers to shop for Australian products and produce whenever possible this Christmas, reminding Aussies of the benefits of buying local.

“It’s a fantastic time of year to shop with local businesses for genuine Aussie products and produce, Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison said.

“Our farmers and manufacturers are among the best in the world, our health and safety standards are some of the highest in the world, and there are so many great Aussie products to choose from.”

Though buying products from overseas retailers online might save you a few dollars if the exchange rate is good, buyers should beware.

“It could be a case of ‘good luck’ regarding warranties, returns policies and the right to a refund where a product is found to be defective, Mr Harrison said.

“Australia's consumer laws won’t cover those purchases, so you can end up out of pocket, or worse.”

Mr Harrison advises consumers to take time to check labels.

“Look for the green-and-gold Australian Made, Australian Grown logo, so you know what you’re getting, and you can be sure it’s good value for money,” Mr Harrison said.

The Australian Made, Australian Grown logo is Australia’s registered country-of-origin certification trade mark for the full range of genuine Aussie products and produce.

More than 2000 businesses are registered to use the logo on over 15,000 products across a wide range of categories.

Shoppers seeking Australian Made and Australian Grown products can look for the logo in-store or online, or search the online product directory at: www.australianmade.com.au/products.
