Trade fair PLMA 2023 in Amsterdam

From May 22nd to 24th we were active as an exhibitor at the PLMA trade fair in Amsterdam. At this world's largest private label event, we met customers, business partners and interested parties at our colourful and inviting booth under the motto "Inspirations & Solutions". With various collections of fragrances, essential oils and flavours, we were able to convince our numerous guests with competence and creativity. A great time for valuable conversations and highly informative exchange in an inspiring environment! Many thanks to all who visited us.

Support for “Help Mada”

Since the beginning of this year FREY&LAU supports with great pleasure the non-profit association "Help Mada e.V.". In this way, we would like to make a contribution to sustainably improving the quality of life of the people of Madagascar. About 80% of the population there live below the poverty line. What is particularly lacking is adequate medical care and educational opportunities. "Help Mada e.V." collects donations to build and expand schools and health stations. In addition, vanilla farmers are to be provided with an additional source of income through vegetable cultivation. FREY&LAU has been sourcing vanilla pods from Madagascar for decades, which we process at our site.
