Report: Buying local. The role of procurement in helping to make Australia.

In these times of economic restraint, the impact and importance of purchasing goods made in Australia, as well as having robust buy local procurement plans and targets to increase Australian made and owned spend is critical now more than ever. The advantages are wide-reaching for both consumers and the nation. Buying Australian made benefits society by creating more jobs for Australians and supporting our local supply chain. Buying Australian made benefits the economy by keeping money onshore.

With Australian made at the forefront of national interest, in 2023 Winc undertook a research project to gain insight into the importance of buying local for Australian organisations. In March 2024, we revisited the topic to understand if and how the landscape had changed 12 months on. The research was conducted online by Taverner Research Group between 24 March – 5 April 2023 (34 procurement professionals participating) and 11 March – 20 March 2024 (22 procurement professionals participating).
