Celebrate local growers, manufacturers on Australia Day and every day

18 January, 2013

Australia Day is a great time for all of us to celebrate the things our country does best, and manufacturing high quality products and growing delicious, nutritious food are a couple of great examples.

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," Australian Made Campaign chief executive, Ian Harrison, said.

"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," Harrison said.

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 trade mark for Australian country of origin claims.

"When you see the AMAG logo on products or produce, you know you're buying genuine Aussie," Harrison said.

"The best thing of all is that you can make every day Australia Day – look for the green-and-gold kangaroo logo."
