Summer Festival 2022

In August, the company grounds were abuzz. Finally, it was time to celebrate again and FREY&LAU invited all employees and their families to the Summer Party 2022. For the children, there was a bouncy castle, a children's tent with toys and face painting. Across the generations, you could prove how amazing you are as a human kicker - in the truest sense of the word. A surf simulator provided the sporty touch. Cultural tents were set up to present a wide variety of cultures, all from and about colleagues: there were Eastern European, Oriental and Frisian specialities. Food trucks matching the cultures and the appetites of the celebrants complemented the festivities with culinary delights. However, the management did not miss the opportunity to personally provide the guests with home-baked waffles and to combine the tasting with extensive conversations.

Djazagro in Algeria

This year we went to Djazagro again - it is the biggest food exhibition and also the biggest professional exhibition in Algeria. It has been taking place since 2003. Meanwhile, well over 700 international exhibitors are regularly on site. About 20,000 professional visitors are looking for aromatic and olfactory impressions. They mainly work for the development of food in Africa. In Algeria, we have been successfully represented by FLY since 2005. Every day, five to six employees presented a wide range of products: aromas, essential oils and perfume oils. Because of the numerous enthusiastic visitors, we are already looking forward to the next fair, which is scheduled to take place at the beginning of June 2023.
