Please note at this time FONA does not accept applications to attend Flavor University classes from employees who work solely with e-cigarette/e-juice products.  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.
