    At Holista CollTech LTD (HCT) our pipeline of nutritional products research is supported by grants from the Malaysian government. We work with some of the leading universities and centers of natural products research. Our researchers, strategic alliance partners and universities partners continue to work to guarantee the most effective products for our customers.

    Our focus is on a broad range of unmet health and medical needs.

    Following our recent merger with the only OVINE collagen producer in the world, CollTech LTD, we have broadened our pipeline to include more promising opportunities in areas such as collagen and biopharmaceuticals.

    No company in the world can do everything today. Collaboration is a vital part of our history and fundamental to everything we do. We share the vision with our collaborative partners for bringing innovative, natural products to consumers around the world.
