Filling the Gap

We are passionate about Aussie dollars staying right here in Australia.  When businesses are Aussie owned, profits stay here and are reinvested here, supporting Aussie jobs and growing the economy. It’s as simple (and as important) as that.

And there was a gap. There was no official certification trademark for businesses that were owned by Aussies. 

We licence businesses to use the Australian Owned Certified logo to promote their business in Australia and overseas.  Australian Owned certification is suitable for all business types – if the business is Aussie owned, it qualifies to make an application with us.
