Celebrating Victorian manufacturing with “Made in Victoria”

Published: 22 October 2018

A new campaign, celebrating the Victorian manufacturing industry by showcasing the products made, designed, and created within Victoria, has been launched. 

The Made in Victoria campaign advocates buying locally made products. Raising awareness about purchasing locally will provide benefits in the community; for not only the benefit of the consumer, but to promote job growth and career opportunities.  

As an industry, manufacturing employs close to 300,000 people in Victoria, almost a third of whom are women. It is forecast for further growth due to ongoing developments in manufacturing technologies. No longer limited to traditional factory work, careers in manufacturing encompass a broad range of skills and services including research and development, design and engineering.   

Made in Victoria features a number of Victorian manufacturers who produce popular products. Some examples include Chobani yoghurt, made in Dandenong; Tontine pillows, made in Campbellfield and Dulux paint, from Merrifield.
