Overhanging the flavor business are ongoing calls from anti-tobacco sectors for either partial or total ingredients bans for tobacco products, which would include flavors, or most or many of them. Even so, this is an interesting time for flavor suppliers. Over the past few years, demand from the e-liquids business increased rapidly and many are making investments to supply that industry specifically. The flavor or taste of a tobacco product is ultimately what the consumer keeps coming back for and following are following are leading companies supplying flavor/flavoring solutions for tobacco products and e-liquids manufacturers in the Asia region.
