From simple beginnings in dairying and casein, Cottee today has evolved into a highly specialised food resource company. We work both directly and indirectly with a number of industries, providing them with key ingredients and formulations aimed towards innovative and cost-effective product creation.


“Hydroxyapatite Since 1983”

Hydroxyapatite has many trading names. Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite [MCHA] in North America. Ossein Mineral Complex [OMC] in the Subcontinent. Ossein Hydroxyapatite Compound [OHC] in Asia. Calcium Hydroxyapatite in Europe.

At Cottee, we simply call it CoCal – a name we registered way back in 1983 when we were the first company to introduce the product into the US market.

With its ideal calcium to phosphorus ratio and superior bioavailability, MCHA rapidly became the product of choice for health professionals looking for an effective calcium supplement.

30 years later, Cottee maintains its position as a leading global supplier of bone-derived calcium for nutraceutical formulations and supplements.

MCHA boasts a calcium level of 24%, as well as containing many other minerals and trace minerals naturally complexed in collagen. The calcium found within MCHA is bound within a protein matrix, which offers increased absorption by the body as a pose to other natural sources of calcium.

Cottee MCHA is manufactured exclusively in Australia, from 100% SRM-free Australian Bovine. Due to Australia’s tight biosecurity regulations, Australian Bovine are regarded as some of the safest livestock worldwide due to the absence of many common international diseases including BSE.

SPA is a pre-soak water conditioner that can reduce moisture loss in shrimp/prawns during processing by up to 10%. The addition of SPA effectively increases the yield of the product, significantly boosting return.
