An eventful year at FREY&LAU

We would have loved to tell you about our big family event before the Christmas holidays, about the unique atmosphere at the Christmas office party or about the successful agent meeting. Because of Covid-19, however, we had to forego big parties. This was the only way we could contribute to the health protection of our staff. Having to cancel everything was a pity, but we surely will find another reason to see each other as soon as circumstances allow.
Covid-19 has had a major impact on our work over the past year. Therefore, the behaviour of all our staff is all the more impressive. Everyone fully supported and full-heartedly implemented the decisions made by the management. With a lot of dedication and the will to change, we have managed to master the situation and go new - often virtual - ways. The management, Dr. Maja Zippel and Claas Nendel, has thanked all employees for their special commitment and great performance by paying them a bonus.
We would like to sincerely thank all our customers and partners for the good cooperation in this extraordinary year. Especially in these times, we greatly appreciate the trust you place in us.
FREY&LAU wishes you and your family a peaceful festive season, good health and a successful start into 2021.

Mint



A true classic among essential oils. The aromatic freshness of mint enhances a broad variety of products. In addition, the active pharmaceutical ingredients in mint oils give them many healthy properties. Mint oils are used in pharmaceuticals, toothpaste and oral care products, in chewing gums, sweets, candies and in the production of animal feed. FREY&LAU specializes in the processing and sales of mint oils, in all variations. We import the oils from growing regions around the world, which lets us offer our customers the entire array of mint oils, peppermint oils, spearmint oils and menthol, in the desired quantity, at all times. We use a special distillation plant for developing top-end mint oil products. All our know-how and experience in gentle rectification and fractionation of essential oils went into designing these systems. Our customers also benefit from our vast expertise in analyzing oils, as well as from individual advice and sensory selection for the desired area of application.
Mint (mentha) is a plant genus in the Lamiaceae family. There are more than 20 different species in the genus, which are primarily native to the northern hemisphere – sometimes found as large-scale cultivated plantation crops.
FREY&LAU offers the most important products from the mint segment:
Mint oil
Mentha Arvensis (wild mint or corn mint) is by far the most cultivated type of mint by volume. It is primarily grown in India. Menthol is extracted from the essential oil of the leaves and the dementholized oil is widely used in the food, oral care, tobacco and pharmaceutical industries. Mint oil is characterized by its clean, fresh menthol taste.
Peppermint oil
Mentha Piperita (peppermint) is the most well-known species of the mint family, and has long been used as a medicinal plant. Peppermint oil is used as an effective component in various pharmaceuticals, e.g. to aid digestion or fighting colds. It is also widely used in the confectionery industry. The essential oil has a fresh smell and taste, which is slightly reminiscent of chocolate. The Piperita is the most widely distributed species among the mints. The primary growing and production regions are the USA, India and China. In contrast to mint oil, the regional variety of peppermint oil is reflected in its taste.
Spearmint oil
Mentha Spicata/Mentha Cardiaca (spearmint) produces an essential oil which is used in toothpaste, chewing gum and confectioneries. Its taste is fresh and green. The essential oil is distinguished by its high content of L-carvone. The oil is primarily extracted in the USA, China and India.   
Menthol
Natural menthol is crystallized from the concentrated essential oil of Mentha Arvensis. It has a cooling effect and a very fresh, intensely minty taste. Menthol is used widely in the food industry, in the production of oral care products, in the pharmaceutical industry and in tobacco products. Menthol is one of the most important flavourings used around the world.
