This is a double sided coin issue as most of the branded lines also produce the home brand products. In most cases it's fine to use the homebrand product as it is often as good as the branded lines. The issues become a problem when the homebrand products start to be imported for overseas & the branded & "Australian Made?" products start to disappear from the shelves. Also some products state that they are distributed by an Australian company using ingredients from overseas but sometimes you really have to look hard to find this wording on the package.
