“The aerosol package is unique and my experience has been that promotion and defense of this package has united companies and individuals. I see no reason why our countries should not be similarly united in our future aerosol endeavours.”

Lindsay Showyin, AAF President

Member Associations

The Asian Aerosol Federation has six member countries; Australia, China, India, Japan, Thailand and New Zealand.

Over the past ten years these countries have become aware of the need for a unified representative organisation for the aerosol industry in the Asia Oceania region, to promote the industry, enhance cooperation, improve communication and advocate environmental stewardship.

One of the key functions of the federation will be to foster those values and practices in other aerosol producing nations in the region, allowing for the creation of more national aerosol associations who will eventually join the federation.
