The Australian Made Campaign encourages shoppers to buy locally made and grown products and produce to show their support for local growers and manufacturers affected by the recent natural disasters across the eastern states.
Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania have been facing a spate of natural disasters for the past few weeks.
Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison explains that the next best thing to providing physical or monetary support is for shoppers to make their purchases from local growers and manufacturers, putting much-needed reinvestment and money back into the local economy.
According to Mr Harrison, this can be done by purchasing from local businesses wherever possible – at the supermarket, when shopping for home wares, when replenishing office supplies or when making purchases of any kind.
Buying Australian-made and Australian-grown products and produce comes with the assurance of great quality while also supporting a local grower or manufacturer in this time of recovery.
The easiest way to identify genuine Aussie goods is to look for the green-and-gold Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo, the registered certification trademark that labels a product as authentically made or grown in Australia.
