  • Long term opportunities – Buying local will help build capacity of businesses and lead onto export and greater employment opportunities
  • Collective campaigning - Share resources and knowledge and improve your competitive advantage
  • Resilient economy – Supporting local businesses will enable the City of Melton economy to be less dependent on outside influences

Where can I use the ‘Buy Local’ logo?

You may use the logo on your advertising, website, printed materials, store windows, cash registers and social media and in other ways to associate yourself with the principles of Buy Local > Supporting Local Jobs and benefit from the collective campaigning and awareness the brand will receive from City of Melton residents.
