The new corporate design is NOW

From now on, you will experience FREY&LAU for communication at all levels with a new corporate design. With our new appearance, we show what makes us unique. FREY&LAU: a dynamic and creative developer of high-quality essential oils, flavours and fragrances.

The new look is a further step towards a successful future for our 180-year-old family business. In addition to the new appearance, other investments in new technologies and the expansion of our production facilities, such as the construction of another rectification plant at our Henstedt-Ulzburg production site, are of utmost importance for us. We will be able to distill essential oils even more gently for you and gain valuable components for natural flavours as well as fragrances. Furthermore, we are increasingly investing in our laboratories to develop individual and unique fragrance and taste experiences, true to our motto "Explore your Senses".

Premiere of „Open-doors Henstedt-Ulzburg“ – Students visiting FREY&LAU

The first trainee-tour stopped over at FREY&LAU: in two groups of 10 between the age of 15 to 17, students from Henstedt-Ulzburg were allowed to have a look at our production site and also did some flavour testing.

Human Resources employees Mrs Goral and Mr Martens planned various activities for the students. An interesting presentation about the company‘s history and portfolio, the flavour testing on green-coloured candy (well guessed – it was sweet woodruff) and a visit to our distillery was part of their tour. They visited the impressive destillery plant hygienicly dressed from head to toe. While they could watch how mintoil was produced, the destiller explained the process behind the impressive rectification plant.
