It’s time to celebrate Australian Made Week

Manufacturing News

Today our fourth Celebrating Australian Made editorial series begins, coinciding with Australian Made Week 2024 (Monday May 20 to Sunday May 26.)

It’s that time of year again, when Australians show a bit of love for goods made here, those who make them, and the value of supporting them.

Australian Made Week was first marked in 2021, following the pandemic-driven resurgence in appreciation for local manufacturing. This week it’s back.

“When we choose to buy local, we’re helping keep Aussies in business and in jobs. Even the smallest purchases can make a huge difference,” according to Australian Made’s Chief Executive Ben Lazzaro..

“And when you consider that according to KPMGs most recent Family Business Survey, 67% of all businesses in Australia are family-owned and operated and more than half of the nation’s workforce is employed by a family business, it makes sense to buy home grown goods.

Once again – as with the previous three years – Australian Made has partnered with @AuManufacturing as part of the week’s celebrations.

The first of eight profiles we’ll run is of Sunrise International, a maker of trailer parts and accessories. Be sure to check back every day this week for new stories.

Our thanks to the Australian Made Campaign Limited, the licensor of the Australian Made logo, for supporting this series.

The famous Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) 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’.
