It's good for you
Our manufacturers, farmers, fishermen and processors make some of the best products in the world, and by buying their goods, you're not only supporting local jobs and our economy, but also getting great products and produce.
Australian products and produce have been manufactured or grown locally to meet our high Australian standards. They come with warranties, and should you need spare parts or service, the supplier is just a phone call away.
That means you can have confidence in the quality and know that whatever you are buying hasn't travelled around the world before it reaches your home.
It's good for your family and friends
There is a direct correlation between consumer purchasing behaviour and employment, local economic development and prosperity. When you buy Australian-made and grown products, you can be sure you are keeping your family members and friends employed
It comes down to all of us as consumers – the people and businesses that buy things every day – to consciously purchase Australian-made and grown products.
It's good for Australia
Research published by the Industry Capability Network shows that for every $1 million of new or retained manufacturing business in Australia, the following effects flow through the economy:
- $333,900 worth of tax revenue generated
- $985,000 worth of value-added generated
- $95,000 worth of welfare benefits saved
- 10 full-time jobs created
It makes sense to buy things that have been made right here in Australia. 1 Industry Capability Network. Economic impacts of the manufacturing and services sectors 2008. (www.icn.org.au)
How to identify genuine Aussie products
The best way to find these Australian goods is by looking for the Australian Made, Australian Grown logo – the green triangle with a golden kangaroo. The logo shows you that the product is made or grown here. It also often tells you if a company is Australian owned.
The famous logo is used by more than 2500 companies on more than 15,000 products sold here and around the world. New products are registered every day and you can find them all in our product directory.
So look for the logo when you shop. You'll not only be doing yourself a favour, but you’ll also be supporting our local workers and our environment.
