South African Vaping Association Recognizes the Contribution of Women Entrepreneurs in Electronic Cigarette Industry
In the face of the continuous impact of the government and anti tobacco activists on the e-cigarette industry, it is very important to emphasize the role of these women in creating employment opportunities and helping smokers quit smoking.
According to foreign reports, the South African steam Products Association (vpasa) celebrated women’s month in this male dominated industry for the first time, recognizing the role played by women in improving community livelihood and reducing the harm of combustible tobacco. The e-cigarette industry in South Africa is mainly composed of small and medium enterprises (SMEs), some of which are owned and led by women.
Asanda gcoyi, CEO of vpasa, said: we need to recognize and encourage the leading women in our industry, highlight their success, challenges, and their contributions to reducing harm and changing the face of the e-cigarette industry.
It is for these reasons that the association pays tribute to the following vpasa members and their female entrepreneurs, especially in the emerging nature of China’s e-cigarette industry:
1. Jenny konenczny and yolandi Vorster from g-drops E-liquid, https://www.gdropseliquids.co.za/
2。 Amanda Ross of steam masters, https://steammasters.co.za/
3. Samantha Stuart from Sir vape, https://www.sirvape.co.za/
3。 Shamima Moosa from the e-cig store, https://theecigstore.co.za/
4. Aasimah tayob from vanilla vapes, https://vanillavape.co.za/
6。 Christel truter from the rustic vape shop, https://therusticvape.co.za/?v=68caa8201064
The South African e-cigarette Association said that in the face of the continuous impact of the government and anti tobacco activists on the e-cigarette industry, it is very important to emphasize the role of these women in creating employment opportunities and helping smokers quit smoking. Efforts to classify e-cigarettes as tobacco products through the proposed legislation, as well as proposals to tax e-cigarette products, will undermine the efforts of these entrepreneurs. The proposed consumption tax bill on nicotine and non nicotine products may cause some of these entrepreneurs to close their shops, resulting in unemployment and tax losses of more than 200 million.
