Rotary Club Taree's 85th Anniversary and DG David Mayne Combined Club Visit

Guest Speaker: ALLYN BEARD



History of Australian Made

The AMAG logo celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2016, but the origins of the campaign can be traced back over 100 years.

1930s - 1960s

The merits of buying Australian made have been advocated in Federal Parliament since Federation, and chambers of manufactures have been championing the cause in publications and press advertisements since the 1930s.

In 1961 a national campaign called Operation Boomerang was launched by the Associated Chambers of Manufactures of Australia to strengthen the profile of local manufacturing and encourage people to buy locally made goods. Its logo, a red boomerang on a blue background with the Southern Cross can still be seen today.

1980s - 1990s

In 1986 the Australian Government commissioned the introduction of the Australian Made logo. It was designed by Melbourne graphic designer, Ken Cato, and officially launched by then Prime Minister, Bob Hawke. It was to be administered by the Advance Australia Foundation for the next 10 years.

The logo reverted back to the Australian Government when the Foundation went into voluntary liquidation in 1996.

In the late 1990s the Australian chamber of commerce network established the not-for-profit company Australian Made Campaign Limited (AMCL), along with a new code of practice for the logo, and in 1999 it was officially relaunched by then Prime Minister, John Howard.


In 2002 ownership of the Australian Made logo was transferred to AMCL. A Deed of Assignment and Management Deed ensure the Government’s ongoing connection to the logo remains strong.

The logo was renamed the ‘Australian Made, Australian Grown’ logo in 2007 when the Federal Government decided to use it as the centrepiece of its new food labelling initiative, ‘Australian Grown’. Ken Cato was commissioned to give the logo a more contemporary look and feel and the rules governing the logo’s use were extended to include fresh and packaged produce.

2010s & beyond

In 2011, the Code of Practice was revised to allow use of the ‘Australian Seafood’ descriptor with the logo.

In mid-2012, Roy Morgan Research found that almost all Australian consumers (98.8%) recognise the logo, and it is the logo which gives the vast majority (88.6%) of Australian consumers strong confidence that a product is Australian.

The Australian Made campaign continues to grow in size and stature. The logo is now used by more than 2600 businesses on over 16,000 products sold in Australia and export markets around the world.

Major retailers, service organisations and associations support the vital role Australia’s manufacturers and growers play in the marketplace by aligning themselves with the campaign. These include ALDI, AUNEW Group, Bev Marks Beds Australia, Coles, EKM Patent & Legal, Forty Winks, Harvey Norman (Furniture and Bedding), Oz-Town, Qantas, Roy Morgan Research, SINI Australia, Snooze, The Purely Group and Woolworths.

Similarly, leading local councils and shires continue to encourage economic development through use of the AMAG logo and support of the Australian Made campaign. Current Campaign Supporters include Blacktown City Council, Cardinia Shire Council, Darebin City Council, Hume City Council, Mitchell Shire Council, Moonee Valley City Council, Moreland City Council, Whittlesea City Council, Wyndham City Council, Yarra City Council and Shepparton City Council.

December 2020

The Board of Australian Made Campaign Ltd (AMCL)—the organisation that administers and promotes the famous Australian Made logo—has appointed a new Chairman in Allyn Beard, Director of Sydney-based mattress manufacturer A.H. Beard. Mr Beard succeeds outgoing Chairman, Glenn Cooper AM, Chairman of Coopers Brewery, who retired from the Board after 13 years as a Director.

Mr Beard, along with his brother, heads the family-owned A.H. Beard business with manufacturing facilities in every state of Australia. The company employs over 400 dedicated and highly skilled people to produce up to 10,000 mattresses every week –  sold in Australia and around the world.

LAST MONDAY - 9th of May 2022 

Guest Speaker: KERRIE GUPPY

Topic: Land Conservation and Management

Invited by Ian Dyball, Kerrie Guppy - the Managing Director of Aus Eco Solutions - spoke about how she and her husband Christian Guppy started their business 18 years ago and the work they do involving restoring native ecosystems and improving biodiversity.  With all her travels, Kerrie ended up in Ballan (town in Ballarat, Victoria) which happened to be Christian's town.  Kerrie had joined the local Fire Brigade and Christian happened to be the Project Firefighter.  Four months later - finding a common passion in love of land and country - they were engaged and few years after found themselves in business together!
The business, Aus Eco Solutions focus on improving plant biodiversity to improve habitat often with endangered species ie spiny rice flower, striped legless legs, scurf pea.  Other services include weed control, ecological burning, revegetation, bush regeneration, and pest animal control ie foxes, rabbits.
Extracted from:

Aus Eco Solutions brings together a team of dedicated and experienced people. Kristian Guppy is the founder and holds a DPI Commercial Operators License. The Aus Eco Solutions team includes a mix of people with financial, managerial, administrative and conservation and land management qualifications and experience.

Our vision
