2023 Catalogue Update

Back in August last year we announced that our brand-new Catalogue would launching in January 2023. With help from our Operations, R&D, Sales and Marketing team; we have been working flat out to make this years edition the very best yet. The project has been far bigger than we could have imagined, and along the way we have had a couple of setbacks that have inevitably pushed out our release date. We are now looking at a new delivery timeframe of roughly April to our Head Office here in Caboolture.

We’ll keep you posted if there are any changes but we promise it will be worth the wait!

If you need a new copy of our current catalogue to get you through until April, please let your local branch or your Customer Relations Manager know and they will be able to sort you out.

The Good Stuff

It’s December, we’re winding down because, well lets face it, we deserve it… if the world has gotten you down this year here’s just a few positives to cheer you up.


  • Humpback Whales have rebounded from a low of 10,000 to 80,000 in 2022.
  • Maggots are now playing a vital role in UK hospitals to treat wounds as bacteria become immune to modern drugs. That’s one up for the flies.


  • A team of Engineers at Stanford have developed a Solar panel that generates power at night as well as during the day. The solar cells pull electricity from the small difference in temperature between the air outside and the solar cell itself.


  • A St Louis bakery in America only hires people with a criminal record. This is to help people getting out of prison make a fresh start. 
  • United Arab Emirates has opened its latest vertical farm in Dubai that uses 95% less water than field grown produce and will deliver over 3 tonnes of leafy greens per day.
