    T1, apparently some threads started prior to 2004 were not restored from the old site during the switchover. I raised this with Vince (new site admin) and the pucka BLT thread and some others are to be recovered shortly.

    Default On Campbell Live

    Dr Spicer had good coverage on Campbell live tonight. It was a good plug for his Bad breath clinics and K-Force(K12). But it was an article from channel 7 in Aus so there was no mention that K-Force was made by a NZ co (BLT).

    Hey THEONE, edit the heading to Blis, not Bliss!

    I'm surprised PT hasn't pulled you up on that...

    The AGM powerpoint presentation is on the BLT site news page. As Bobby mentioned earlier the answers to many questions are all there ...and the strategic redirection of the company away from retail sales.

    I assume the non-election of the German director is related to the mentioned 'business decision' in that market. Hopefully someone will pick up the Germany marketing later. Spanish sales efforts didn't look too good either.

    Default Blis on Campbell

    That Campbell show was THE chance for Blis to make a name of itself; is nobody at Blis bothering with PR - which is FREE - at all? Very annoyed.

    Impatient I can understand your frustration and I'm of the same frame of mind, they need to get themselves out there in the full glow of the media and the bad breathed public but I also think little old NZ is not the place for a company like this to try to blaze the trail they have to get exposure in america europe and asia, only then will we see their products starting to sell at big enough numbers to have an effect on the sp.
    I don't bloody believe it

    I got the following response from Barry Richardson today

    "Iím afraid the release caught us as we had no prior knowledge that it would occur. According to Geoff, neither did he as he was approached after the publicity in Australia. Short of an additional press release dedicated to this we cannot do much at the moment, other than to include it on our web site which we have done. However, we are pleased to see the progress that Geoff is making with his particular business model and certainly see the increase in sales."

    It was good to note "Geoff is making with his particular business model and certainly see the increase in sales"

    Scuffer, I agree. There is not a lot of value in spending marketing $ on little old NZ. There are bigger fish to fry (we hope).

    Cool Neglect NZ?

    At first glance it makes absolute sense, Chippie - there's a much bigger market elsewhere than NZ. But if Blis management couldn't even market the products in little old NZ properly, why would or should we trust them to be able to do that overseas; the world hasn't exactly been craving Blis for the last few years (or we would have seen better sales in Blis' previous overseas efforts).

    Marketing (eg TV ads) in those large markets is excessively expensive compared to NZ, and leaving all that to overseas distributors means giving up complete control over your brand (plus you have no idea whether these distributors are doing anything anyway).

    Blis had years and years to build a solid domestic business and form a basis for global expansion. Anything else is like taking the second step before the first. And as for their recent AGM preso - geez, haven't we all heard these great announcements before?! I do hope it's not gonna take another 5-6 years before we see some decent sales.

    Chippie, are you working with Blis or how come you have your private hotline to Barry? ;-) Not surprised by your unshakeable support for their management then...

    I just email Blt from the email address on their web site. Someone has always responded to my questions.

    I can not disagree with your comments about the promises from BLT. I have been a holder for a number of years.

    Before Barry joined I had written of my investment. But the two recent deals that Barry has signed up have given me renewed hope.

    Still BLT is a spec share so high risk is the name of the game.

    BLIS Technologies Ltd (NZX: BLT), developer and manufacturer of BLIS K12, an advanced oral probiotic for the prevention of upper airways infection and the treatment of chronic bad breath, has recently announced that it been granted US patent for its latest strain of advanced oral probiotic called "MIA".

    "MIA is very closely related to our existing K12 range of probiotic products, which is found in the New Zealand retail sector and was the active ingredient behind a novel Australian halitosis product that recently appeared on the TV3 programme, Campbell Live " according to BLIS, Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Chris Chilcott. "What makes MIA unique; however, is that this new strain has been shown to be very effective in protecting teeth from dental plaque, which is known to be a major contributor to tooth decay . We believe the new MIA probiotic can be used to suppress levels of Streptococcus mutans, the principal cause of dental plaques. Streptococcus mutans converts dietary refined sugar to lactic acid. The lactic acid, in turn, erodes the mineral in enamel and dentin, which weakens the tooth resulting in tooth decay.

    Dr Chilcott indicated that dental caries or tooth decay, is a worldwide epidemic that affects the majority of populations in both industrialized and developing countries. According to the World Health Organization, tooth decay is the most prevalent infectious disease, affecting approximately 5 billion people.

    "This represents a major milestone in our research and development programme, and sends a clear signal that BLIS is not a single product company" Dr Barry Richardson, BLIS CEO, said today, "we have been planning a solid platform of technology that addresses a broad array of potential application areas."

    BLIS has indicated that they have already started early discussions with some major international companies around the commercial opportunities for their new probiotic, MIA; but would not be drawn on specific details at this early stage. BLIS Technologies Ltd did however recently announce that it had entered into "letter of intent" to evaluate and potentially develop global product and market opportunities based on BLIS's advanced probiotics technology, with Dutch food ingredient giant, DSM Nutritionals (formally Roche Vitamins). It is expected that this would also include opportunities for the new MIA strain.
