Flavor University®

You have the food knowledge. Now add some flavor.

FONA flavor experts love to learn — and teach! By sharing our knowledge through Flavor University, we help food and beverage professionals gain a deeper understanding of the creation and use of flavor in product development — hopefully making their jobs easier.

Flavor University courses are taught by FONA’s dedicated and highly-skilled faculty members who are on the leading edge of flavor innovation. Join us for one of our non-commercial courses and learn from the best!

This renowned program is offered tuition-free as a service to food and beverage professionals.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Flavor University course!

Please note at this time FONA does not  accept applications to attend Flavor University classes from employees of e-cigarette/e-juice, (etc) companies.  Knowing that the flavors we sell are not approved for use in these products, we do not feel it’s appropriate to educate you on their use without creating a possible conflict of interest.
