Australian Made Export Projects
The Australian Made, Australian Grown logo has been used in export markets ever since its inception in 1986. A snapshot of the licensee database in 2011 showed that 44% of the (then) 1700 licensees exported and used the logo.
Its use as an export tool was enhanced when the federal Government, in 2004, provided funding for AMCL to undertake a range of strategic promotional activities in selected export markets “to enhance the logo as an export tool”.
Over the ensuing 6 years AMCL participated in a wide range of promotional activities in key markets in North America, Asia and the Middle East, generally in partnership with partners such as Austrade, the Master Builders Association, Wine Australia and, more recently, Horticulture Australia.
In all these activities the AMAG logo was used as branding for trade and/or retail events promoting genuine Aussie products and produce. This was the first time the AMAG logo had been strategically promoted offshore as Australia’s global product symbol – even though it had been used on product in export markets for years and years.
Extensive research undertaken as part of these activities clearly established the logo’s effectiveness as a marketing tool.
Although the financial support from Government finished in 2011, AMCL continues to provide branding support for selected offshore promotions. AMCL also works with Australian Made Campaign Partners to facilitate export opportunities.
