Made in Britain
BRITISH MANUFACTURERS JOIN MADE IN BRITAIN TO HELP SELL MORE OF THE PRODUCTS THEY MAKE
Our organization aims to bring together the entire manufacturing community in the UK, united with the use of our registered marque, so their business can benefit in sales, marketing, exports and PR.
Becoming a member entitles your business to a profile page on the Made in Britain Directory alongside all the other makers in our 40 product categories. We encourage buyers, specifiers and ultimately, consumers to treat the Directory as the procurement site for British-made goods. And many of our members use the directory to find new suppliers. As a member, you can make special offers to other members and take advantage of the offers available from them. This network helps encourage and develop the supply chain of British made goods. The people that work for Made in Britain manufacturers, your staff, can also take advantage of member-2-member offers.
We also support our membership by providing a complete suite of Made in Britain marques in the three formats.
You can download these from our website once you have joined.
And we’ve mapped out all the file types you’ll need, JPEG, CMYK, RGB etc, so the marque looks consistent across all the 1000s of ways it is being used. Payment of the annual membership fee includes the licence to use the marque, which has already been prepared in multiple version and file types so designers can use it across packaging, in print, on products and in social media. If your designers want to alter the colour of the pointing arrow, they can do that too. Members all receive a Marque Guidelines Handbook that explains how to make the marque look correct when applying colour creatively.
With our 1000-strong membership including manufacturers of all sizes, making 100s of different kinds of products, we also promote them with our News stream and in local and national media.
We’re a diverse group of successful manufacturers making everything from Kitchen Roll to Wind Turbines, Vans to Shoes, Coffee Machines to Bio Beans. Journalists look to Made in Britain to know know who is making what and where in the UK. By being a member, you’ll increase the profile of your businesses with sector based media looking to emphasize what Britain is making right now. We also hold member Workshops around the UK where you can learn from other members, pitch your product, get lots of valuable social media insight and hear from experts in marketing, exports, PR and sales - all of them focused on supporting Britain’s manufacturers.
Made in Britain is a fast-growing community of like-minded manufacturers from all around the UK. By applying the Made in Britain marque to your product, packaging or website, your business is making it really clear to buyers and consumers that you're making right here, in the UK.

WHO CAN USE THE MADE IN BRITAIN MARQUE?
The Made in Britain marque is accredited to businesses that sell goods that have been manufactured or have undergone a final substantial change in the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland before sale.
All companies that apply to use the Made in Britain marque may be asked to submit written evidence that they manufacture their products in the UK. By UK we mean “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”.
Made in Britain adheres to advice on country of origin labelling included in the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 which says that the majority of the production/manufacturing process must have taken place in the UK. Country of origin is therefore the country in which a product last underwent a treatment or process resulting in a substantial change.
