Australian Made makes Australia

June 6th to 12th is Australian Made Week and is a time to celebrate Australia’s local makers and growers around the country. Australian made products support the economy, local businesses, and communities.

So, what is Australian Made?

‘Australian Made’ is about the production process of a product rather than its components, and it is where a product has undergone its last substantial transformation in Australia.

At Buckford, we have a greater focus on supporting local manufacturers and are proud that several of our brands are certified Australian Made.
