OUR HISTORY

Formerly known as the Queensland Straw Factory, the business has been successfully trading in Australia since 1989, manufacturing plastic drinking straws and importing a range of food service products.

From humble beginnings the Queensland Straw Factory was built on good old fashioned hard work and service. The previous owner grew the business from acquisitions of other straw businesses around various states of Australia to the nationally recognised business it is today.

WHO WE ARE NOW

In November 2014, the business saw the end of an era with Shane Jordan retiring and selling the business to Michael and Mellissa Krause.

The new owners come with a mix of experience in business, from sales and brand development, and they look forward to getting back to their roots in the hospitality industry as a trusted supplier of quality Australian Made and imported products.

WHERE WE ARE HEADED

The history of the Queensland Straw Factory Brand will not be forgotten, however the new owners have decided a fresh new national appeal is required to take the business forward.

Austraw will continue the legacy of the Qld Straw Factory under our new name and Brands – Austraw – Wobbly Boot – One Tree.

Backed by some of the best suppliers in the world, to our long term staff with specialised industry knowledge, Austraw has the right products with service and advice.
