Vision and Purpose


In December 2011, based on the results of a Member Survey, the Association’s Executive participated in an externally facilitated strategy session. They identified critical ‘hotspots’ to address to ensure the sustainability of the Australian aerosol industry and its Association. These key pillars have formed the basis of the resulting Association Strategy - summarised below. This strategy was updated in late 2014 and again in 2022 following subsequent Member Surveys, with a fifth pillar - Sustainability [currently under development] - added in late 2022.


To be recognised as the authoritative voice of the Australian Aerosol Industry and to maximise the growth, prosperity and international competitiveness of all members


To be the single authoritative voice relating to all aspects of aerosol manufacture, filling and use in Australia and to shape the growth and development of the industry in Asia
