In a reminder to ‘remember the roo’ in the lead-up to Australia Day, the Australian Made Campaign, the not-for-profit organisation that administers and promotes the green-and-gold kangaroo certification trade mark for Australian products and produce, is reminding shoppers of the reason behind why we should do so.
When you Buy Australian, you know you are helping your mates and the enterprise they work in, all day every day, to be successful.
These local enterprises in turn offer our kids after school part-time work, where they can learn the basics of the world of work, and then tend to offer full time jobs as the business grows.

“Whether shopping for snags or flags, shoppers are reminded to look for the green-and-gold kangaroo logo, which can be found on all certified Australian products in stores and online.”
In order to carry the symbol products must meet a strict set of criteria for growing and manufacturing items onshore, to provide consumers with assurance that the item they are purchasing meets Australian quality, health and safety standards.
“The Australian Made, Australian Grown kangaroo is a quick and easy point of reference for anyone with a preference for buying authentic Australian products,” Mr Harrison said.
Mr Harrison says the logo also represents support for the local economy, and Australian values like mateship.
“Local communities stand to benefit greatly if their dollars are tipped into locally produced items – either by our own farmers or manufacturers,” Mr Harrison said.
“Supporting local industries will also ensure they continue to thrive for future generations,” he added.
“Our country’s pristine production regions and high quality manufacturing standards make genuine Aussie products and produce a great choice for any celebration,” Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison said..
With so many great reasons to buy Aussie – research shows Australians love locally made and grown products because of their quality and value for money, there’s no better time to Buy Australian.
