Cottee's 100th Birthday Countdown
People are still singing the old Cottee’s jingle 30 years later
During WW2 Mr Cottee sent all kinds of vitamin-packed jams and juices to keep our soldiers healthy
Mr Cottee initially sold surplus passionfruit pulp to Peter’s Ice Cream in Sydney
Based on the success of Passiona, Cottee’s made a pineapple flavoured version and called it “Pineona” in 1953
Before McDonald’s, in 1969, Cottee’s setup one of Australia’s first fast food chains – Burger Chef.
Our Passiona ad ‘Untamed Taste’ in 1967 was so successful we had to withdraw it, because we couldn’t keep up with demand!
Peanuts, which we called Cottee’s One Penny Salted Peanuts (1934), potato chips we named Cottee’s Curly Crisps (1958), soup (1958) and frozen brocolli (1964).
