Australian Manufacturing in 2021


The Australian Made logo is the true mark of Aussie authenticity. It's Australia's most trusted and recognised country of origin symbol governed by an accreditation system, which ensures products that carry the logo are certified as 'genuinely Australian.'

 Choosing to buy Australian products means ;

You are supporting Australian jobs by supporting companies that employ more Australians and pay taxes to the government, thereby supporting the Australian economy and workers. 

Research completed by Roy Morgon in 2019 concluded that Australian-Made products are increasingly preferred by Aussies when they're out shopping. 90% of Australians are more likely to buy a product that are 'made in Australia,' up from a very high 88% four years ago. Although these figures are very high across all age groups, it is those in Generation X (92%) and Baby Boomers (91%) who are even more likely to prefer Australian-made products than other generations.1

Alongside the campaign for the green and gold kangaroo - Australian Made certification - locally manufactured goods are known for their quality, service, and overall customer experience, whilst benefiting many factors such as local economics and environmental sustainability.


Lusty Reusable Product Solutions is a Female-led, B-Corp & Australian Made company that focuses on locally manufactured products that are eco-friendly & sustainable. 

321 Water and Uppercup are two leading brands produced by Lusty, manufactured in Australia to ensure we remain sustainable and ethical in our supply chain and operations. 

Our reusable cups and water bottles are innovative, designed with minimum components that can be replaced or recycled easily. This allows you to replace parts rather than entire products.

Being B Corp certified and proudly Australian made, we use unique, high-quality material in every component of our coffee cup and water bottle to provide you with the safest and highest quality product.

We carefully select materials, products, and partners that share the same values and beliefs.

As shared by the AI group blog, it is evident that the fundamental requirements to grow manufacturing jobs in Australia post-COVID-19 include;

  • building a more dynamic and higher productivity economy; 
  • achieving a more inclusive economy and society; 
  • and ensuring that Australia moves decisively to net zero emissions by 2050. 

Australian manufacturing will play a central role in securing all these objectives. This is why the Federal Government will pump close to $1.5 billion into Australia's manufacturing sector, outlining plans to shore up local production and strengthen supply chains in the wake of COVID-19.


We challenge you as conscious consumers to get in touch with your favorite brands and query them on their manufacturing origin and supply chain process. The want for change needs to come from both sides of the coin (supplier and consumer) to become plausible.
