Australian Owned Certification Receives International Recognition

Australian Owned has been awarded ‘Best Business Certification Service Australia’ at the 2021 APAC Insider Business Awards, announced last month.  

APAC Insider Business Awards are presented annually to recognise the achievements of businesses within the Asia-Pacific region that are at the forefront of their field, have made outstanding contributions to the industry and are positioned to make a significant impact going forward.    

“Winning this award is an incredible achievement for us.  We are proud of the immense amount of work our team have undertaken over the past two years and this award is recognition of that,” said Eddie Kocwa from Australian Owned.

“Our vision has been to build transparency and trust in the AO Certified logo for both business and consumer.  The logo has a strong message – support this business and profits stay in Australia.”

The AO logo is only held by businesses that pass a rigorous assessment process and includes a unique AO ID number.  The AO Certification Trademark is strictly administered, and its Rules are lodged with the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”).  

General Manager of Australian Owned, Kristy Ponting, said the award confirms the confidence businesses can have when obtaining their AO certification.

“With a team of qualified compliance & marketing professionals, we have developed a national, market leading and cost-effective certification program. 

“We will continue to innovate and deliver solutions to provide value to our certified businesses.  To give them the tools to grow, to strengthen communities through jobs and investment and contribute to the long-term prosperity of this country.”
