Business Divestiture Overview

Strawganic GmbH was founded in 2017. Focus of Strawganic is trading with sustainable products. Main products launched by Strawganic are steel and glass straws in different colors, length and shape. Strawganic is also importing products from other brands in the EU, acting as a reseller in Switzerland.

Over the last five years Strawganic GmbH established its operations and launched its own products in Switzerland. Strawganic entered in various strategic partnerships (distributor, manufacturing & logistics services providers, etc.). This allowed Strawganic to keep the company structure lean and monthly fixed costs could be kept very low. The word/picture «Strawganic» is intellectual property of Strawganic GmbH. Trademarks are registered in Switzerland and the European union.

Straganic is ready to expand internationally. The domicil in Riehen, Switzerland is attractive from a tax perspective.

Strawganic intents to divest its full operational business. The deal is structured as a «share deal» (Stammanteile GmbH). Together with the GmbH the buyer acquiers all assets (e.g. Trademarks, inventory, etc.) and liabilites of the company.
