We support you save. Combat the cost of living crisis with Aussie Pharma Direct

Supporting you through hard times and saving you money

, by AussiePharmaDirect, 5 min reading time

The past few years have been tough for everyone with the pandemic touching the lives of all to some degree or another. Jobs were lost, people got sick, and some even tragically passed away, but throughout, at Aussie Pharma Direct we made it our mission to help our fellow Aussies as much as possible.

In fact, we established the business in response to the pandemic as it became evident Australia’s reliance on overseas manufacturers was a weak link in our supply chain, especially for essential PPE products like face masks.

To tackle the issue, we teamed up with AMD Medical who manufactured the first Australian made P2 face masks. Unlike normal masks, the AMD P2 / N95 masks are the only ones that utilise nano-fibre technology to provide superior protection, breathability and comfort.

We are proud to have played a pivotal role in distributing these world class respirators to healthcare workers and everyday Aussies to protect them from Covid and other airborne pathogens.

In an effort to provide the best possible protection for our frontline workers and our most vulnerable members of society, since the start of the pandemic, Aussie Pharma Direct has delivered 20 million masks to hospitals and nursing homes - an important defensive measure that has helped to reduce the spread of infection, especially before the Covid vaccines became widely available.

Supporting seniors and more

We have also supported seniors with cost of living expenses by offering a 10 percent discount across our website when they sign up to our seniors loyalty programme, plus we have donated PPE and cash donations to various groups such as Giant Steps and Mad Mob Aboriginal Corporation to help support the great work they do.  

In addition, we have worked with the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, an Australian non-profit organisation that helps babies, children, teenagers and adults living with cerebral palsy and other neurological and physical disabilities. 

5 reasons why you should buy Australian made products

  1.   The products meet Australia’s exacting standards 

Products made in Australia must adhere to our strict manufacturing standards, so you know they will do what they say they will do, i.e., they actually work. This means they are high quality and safe to use.

  1.   You are supporting our local economy 

Locally made products grow businesses and create jobs, which generates tax revenue to improve our infrastructure and way of life. It’s a win-win.

  1.   The products are fresher 

Especially true for the food and beverage sector, products imported from overseas may be months old before they land on our supermarket shelves, plus the profits stay in Australia and fresh food is healthier and tastes better.

  1.   Quality customer service 

If you have ever suffered through long waiting times or language difficulties dealing with customer relations based overseas, then you would appreciate the ease of dealing with a local supplier. Plus, if you need a replacement part for a product, you don’t have to wait a long time for it to arrive from overseas. 

  1. It’s better for the environment

When you buy Australian made, it’s better for the environment as the impact of transportation and energy expenditure is far less if the product doesn’t have to travel thousands of kilometres from overseas.

Quite simply, we offer quality innovative products at competitive prices. If you want to buy Australian made, have a look around our website for a curated selection of the best healthcare products made in Australia, by Australian businesses.
