Made in London

The idea of famous Stroodles Pasta Straws was born in Italy and brought back to London where it was officially founded by Mr. Stroodles.

It’s Chief Stroodle Maxim Gelmann behind it all. His decision to follow his guts made Stroodles happen. The previous career and experience in business strategy gave the confidence needed to make the first step, as Maxim said himself ‘I was at the right place, at the right time with the right mindset’. Since then Mr. Stroodles has been spotted and recognised by many well-known media companies and shows such as Dragons Den, Unilad, Lad Bible, BBC Good Food, Huffington Post etc

Stroodles products are environmentally friendly

Being inspired by zero-waste chief Anne-Marie Bonneau’s quote “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly”. Plastic straws may be small, but when the world uses billions of them a year, they make a significant contribution to plastic pollution in our oceans.
