Blis Technologies wins international award
Dunedin-based biotechnology firm Blis Technologies has received the prestigious 2010 Frost & Sullivan Global Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award in Food and Beverage Ingredients.
The company is involved in the development of advanced probiotics for the oral cavity.
Dr Barry Richardson, chief executive of Blis Technologies, said that it was gratifying to have independent recognition from such a global authority as Frost and Sullivan.
He also indicated that this was a strong and solid endorsement of the changes that Blis Technologies made in its company's strategic direction back in 2007.
In making this award, Frost and Sullivan noted that Blis Technologies had addressed key industry challenges through concerted research and competent strategies despite an increasingly challenging market and the potential competitive threats offered by industry giants such as Danisco, Chr Hansen, and DSM.
The awards banquet was held in the United States on Thursday.
