J.G. Boswell and Auscott

Samples of cotton sourced from particular regions around the world can be verified right back to where they were grown.

Oritain can verify the origin of Australian Upland and Californian Supima cotton.


Enhanced traceability in the cotton industry. Oritain provides scientific traceability services to two of the world's largest cotton growers–the J.G. Boswell Company and its subsidiary, Auscott Limited.

The J.G. Boswell Company is one of America's largest agricultural producers and the largest U.S. grower of luxurious Supima cotton. Auscott Ltd is one of Australia's largest farmers and ginners of high-quality Upland cotton.

Using our technology, the claimed origin of a sample of cotton can be scientifically verified. Our method complements other forms of industry traceability but is different in that we test the natural properties of the fibre and aren't reliant on barcodes or labelling.

The independence of the service means the Auscott and J.G. Boswell are looking beyond industry standards to protect the integrity of the cotton they produce.
