Rowntree Hoadley

Hoadleys was an Australian born confectionery company that succeeded for many years.

Hoadleys created some of Australia’s favourite brand names like Violet Crumble, Polly Waffle, Tex Bar, and some still exist today……
Acquired in 1970’s by Rowntrees (British), hence re-name to Rowntree-Hoadley, and continued using that brand til sold again to multi national Nestle in 1988.
