A colourful year comes to an end: Our look back at 2017

At FREY&LAU, the last of this year’s projects have been brought to completion and we are already preparing to hit the ground running with whatever 2018 might bring. However, we are pleased to be able to look back on 2017 as an extremely successful year, full of triumphs.

FREY&LAU stands for diversity: 2017 saw us continuing our tradition of creating complete sensory worlds of taste and smell using our perfume oils and flavours whilst also presenting tempting fragrance and flavour combinations which keep up to date with the latest trends. We travelled round the world to trade fairs and topped off our year by making a sparkling appearance at FI Europe, where our natural flavours took centre stage. Our diverse creations and products are always well received – something which the rising demand for FREY&LAU fragrances bears out.

We would like to wish you a healthy and relaxing holiday season and to thank all of our clients, suppliers and business partners and, of course, our committed employees for making 2017 truly special. We look forward to undertaking exciting new projects and challenges with you in 2018.
