Australian Made Sweaters
The famous Australian Made logo is the true mark of Aussie authenticity. It's Australia's most trusted, recognised and widely used country of origin symbol, and is underpinned by a third-party accreditation system, which ensures products that carry the logo are certified as 'genuinely Australian’. *
Keep Australian business strong by looking out for products that show the Australian made logo. Today we have evolved into a new world of retail shopping, and the end consumer is now more interested in finding not just the right product but the right quality. For the past years we have seen many Australian manufacturers move to other parts of the world e.g. China and India as the cost of manufacturing in Australia soared compared to these countries. However, for just a few who have been able to maintain their businesses and still manufacture in Australia it has been a tough journey for them. What we need to be doing as Australian consumers is supporting the manufactures that are left in our beautiful country and praise the work, they have done to achieve this.
Another note is that most Australian manufactures have great working conditions for their staff and are paid well for their work. Ethically produced products are what we need more of, in Australia.
The Australian Made, Australian Grown logo is administered by Australian Made Campaign Limited (AMCL), a not-for-profit public company established in 1999 by the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ACCI) and the network of state and territory chambers of commerce, with the cooperation of the Federal Government.*
AMCL is not a government body and does not receive government funding for its core operations, which are licensing companies to use the logo and promoting Australian products both in Australia and overseas. *
So, keep supporting Australian made products, Australian farmers and Australia's culture.
