Businesses > Australian Made, Australian Owned
It isn't just companies, that want to show their support for local industry. Leading local councils, like Horsham Rural City Council and cities around Australia are making strong statements about their commitment to economic development and their support for the local industry by becoming Campaign Supporters of the Australian Made, Australian Grown Campaign. Our Economic Development team encourages growth and efficiency within existing businesses and attracts new enterprise to the region. Economic Development is more than creating jobs; it is about harnessing opportunities, fostering entrepreneurship and building community capacity. Horsham Rural City Council offers numerous opportunities for investment and to help identify these opportunities, we can provide information and advice on statistics, demographics, land availability and much more. To discuss enterprise opportunities in Horsham Rural City, please contact 03 5382 9777.
Show your support for local industry and jobs by shopping local and purchasing locally made products and produce. In February 2008, HRCC became an official financial partner of the Australian Made, Australian Grown Campaign. The Australian Made, Australian Grown logo is a powerful marketing tool and isn't just available to manufacturers and growers, but also to retailers, home based operators, industry bodies and organisations that support local jobs. Research shows that 65% of Australian shoppers have a strong preference for buying locally made products and produce and it makes business sense to help them by stocking and promoting locally made goods.
The Australian Made, Australian Grown logo is Australia's most trusted and recognised symbol for goods that are made or grown here. It is a registered certification trademark and can only be used on products that are registered with the not-for-profit Australian Made, Australian Grown Campaign (AMAG) and which meet the criteria set out in the Trade Practices Act 1974 and AMAG's own and more stringent Code of Practice. The logo must always be used with one of three descriptors.
