MEMBERS CAN USE THE GENUINELY SOUTHERN FORESTS BRAND MARK (LOGO)
The Genuinely Southern Forests Western Australia brand mark or logo can be used by Food Council members. The brand mark has a number of minor variations that can be seen in the Brand Code of Practice document. This brand mark is predominantly for food producers/growers.
The preferred version is Genuinely Southern Forests Western Australia, however members can use the version that highlights their town, if they prefer.
Once you become a member of the Southern Forests Food Council you can apply under the Brand Code of Practice application form, which can be found on page 8 of the document. Once approved this will allow you to use the brand in your selected and approved manner e.g. on your website, brochures etc.
A Genuinely Southern Forests Supporter category has also been created to allow those people and businesses that are not food producers or growers to participate and use the brand mark. If you are a local business, tourism operator or association for example, you can apply under the Brand Code of Practice to use the Genuinely Southern Forests Supporter brand mark on your promotional material.
