Certified Logos

AUSTRALIAN MADE

The Australian Made logo is administered by Australian Made Campaign Limited (AMCL), a not-forprofit public company established in 1999 by the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ACCI) and the network of state and territory chambers of commerce, with the co-operation of the Federal Government. AMCL is not a government body and does not receive government funding for its core operations, which are licensing companies to use the logo and promote Australian products both in Australia and overseas. The Australian Made logo is Australia’s most trusted and recognised symbol for products that are made or grown in Australia. It is a registered certification trademark and can only be used on products that are registered with the not-forprofit Australian Made Campaign Ltd (AMCL).

The iconic green and gold logo was commissioned by the Federal Government in 1986 and designed by the internationally acclaimed creative consultant, Ken Cato. It can now be found on more than 10,000 products sold in Australia and through export markets around the world.

Southernature are proud to display the "Australian Made" logo on our products. By manufacturing our products in Australia, we support local jobs and contribute to the growth of the Australian economy. When you buy Southernature, you are buying quality, Australian Made products.

GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICES

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are the practices required in order to conform to guidelines recommended by agencies that control authorisation and licensing for manufacture and sale of food, drug products, and pharmaceutical products. These guidelines provide standards that a pharmaceutical or a food product manufacturer must meet to assure that the products are of high quality and do not pose any risk to the consumer or public.

GMP guidelines provide guidance for manufacturing, testing, and quality assurance to ensure that a drug product is safe for human consumption.

Our manufacturer complies with Australian GMP procedures to ensure consistency, accountability and traceability in all our products. We ensure that SOUTHERNATURE products are safe, and are made with the highest manufacturing standards.

 

VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY

Many Vegetarian Friendly products may not be 100% vegetarian friendly, as claimed. Often they neglect to label the source of materials that were used in making the product; these could be animal derived vitamins or gelatine capsules sourced from an animal based ingredients.

At SOUTHERNATURE, we deliver what we promise; products labeled with our Vegetarian Friendly logo which are truly vegetarian.

 

VEGAN FRIENDLY

Vegans follow a stricter animal free based diet than Vegetarians, hence they do not consume any animal derived products such as dairy, honey and eggs.

Whilst some companies may overlook this rule, here at SOUTHERNATURE we assure that our Vegan Friendly products are free from all animal derived ingredients including dairy products.

 

INTERNATIONAL FISH OIL STANDARDS™

The International Fish Oil Standards™ (IFOS™) Program is the only third party testing and certification program exclusively for fish oils. As a voluntary, subscription-based service available to the entire fish oil supply chain, IFOS tests products by lot, using direct analysis, to ascertain active ingredient content, contaminants and freshness.

The purpose of IFOS is to allow companies to showcase their high quality premium products, and to provide consumers with an easy, transparent way to compare fish oil products before they purchase.

IFOS sets the world’s highest standards for purity, potency and freshness. SOUTHERNATURE proudly engages IFOS to test their fish oil products to the highest standards internationally.
