Upcoming 'Manufacturing in Australia' project

image 18th Apr 2016 — A call-out to participate. The Ethical Consumer Group are in the process of developing a series of resources that look specifically at manufacturing in Australia. Presently our Shop Ethical! guide provides information largely focusing on the companies behind the brands. We're keen to expand this by adding features of the products themselves, including 'country of origin' information, so you know where the things you buy are manufactured or grown.

Key components of our project are:
  • a mapping resource showing production facilities of major food brands in Australia
  • a smartphone scan feature where you can help us crowdsource product label data to expand our dataset
Ultimately this resource will help you and other shoppers support Australian industry and jobs with your dollar. We're looking for people to help out with the project, and project partners. If you're interested, please drop us a line!
