The OSTAs committee is very excited to announce their

naming sponsor partnership with BLIS PROBIOTICS for the

next two years.

A little bit about BLIS:


Blis Technologies are the developers of the world’s first advanced oral probiotics.


Blis currently market two strains of probiotic bacteria – BLIS K12™ and BLIS M18™ – both of which occur naturally in the oral cavity. However, only around 2% of the population have these healthy bacteria at levels high enough to be effective.


BLIS K12™ was originally developed into a probiotic supplement to support throat health. But the benefits of BLIS K12™ have been found to be more wide-reaching as studies show it supports the ear nose and throat health of infants and children, and it is also effective in improving bad breath (halitosis).

The second strain – BLIS M18™ – was discovered later and this promotes the healthy bacterial balance for dental health.


"BLIS produce many products which help fight winter ills - especially helpful during our winter show seasons. Myself and many other singers use BLIS as a way to build up their immune system before a show season and to prevent the development of throat infections. Since taking their products I have got through many demanding rehearsal periods, show seasons and gigs where my throat health was of the

upmost importance, I highly recommend their products."

- Anna Langford, performer & singing teacher.


All of their products are developed and manufactured at their headquarters in Dunedin.
