An Australian firm owned by former Italians is working two shifts a day in Brisbane to keep up with the steadily rising demand in Australia for macaroni products including spaghetti. Ten years ago Nanda Macaroni Products Pty Ltd, made only ten tons a week, now it is turning out 100 tons a week. The boom in sales is due to changing eating habits of Australians, as a result of the post-war influx of immigrants, has led to the suspension of shipments of macaroni from Brisbane to Italy. Mr Frank de Pasqual's sons (from left) Ralph, 21, Victor, 18 and Vince, 21, who hold senior positions in the factory. June 1959
