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.

Varieties to suit every possible application: Flavours develop and unfold differently in every product. Therefore, along with creativity and finesse, the art of developing flavours also requires a great deal of technical know-how. Extensive knowledge of various foods and application areas is needed. At FREY&LAU we combine all of the knowledge - producing flavours using the optimal technology.


FREY&LAU produces liquid flavours in all imaginable varieties. Liquid flavours are particularly well-suited for teas, beverages, fruit gums, chewing gums, soft and chewy candies, chocolates, fruit preparations, ice creams and oral care products. Many of these flavours are also available in a highly concentrated form. Like all of our products, liquid flavours are evaluated through extensive tests in the respective applications.

Powder and Granules

Ingredients that hit the right taste buds. Our solid flavours are available in all desired taste varieties and can assume various forms and consistencies. We offer our customers powder mixes, spray-dried powders, macro-granules or plant fiber granules with outstanding properties for flavouring cereals, bakery products, ice creams, dessert powders, teas and instant beverages.


We pioneer products for our customers. With CAPSO® technology, FREY&LAU has developed a highly innovative process for encapsulating flavours. CAPSO® flavours are distinguished by their remarkably authentic flavour profiles and retention of high-end notes. CAPSO® flavour granules have outstanding mechanical stability. As a result of their long shelf life and a water soluble matrix, CAPSO® flavour granules are ideally suited for flavouring tea. We maintain an extensive assortment of these granules in a broad variety of flavourings and in many sizes, shapes and colors.


Over many years, we have perfected the production of mint flavours. Due to our vast expertise and experience in this area, we are considered to be a specialist in processing mint oils, which are very gently rectified on our own custom-developed distillation plant. Mint flavours have a revitalizing freshness and are primarily used in dental and oral care products, chewing gum and confectioneries. We produce a fascinating variety of flavours based on mint, peppermint and spearmint oils as well as menthol. At Frey + Lau, customers appreciate our wide range of minty flavours for every application.


The sweet flavour of vanilla gives an irresistible taste to a multitude of foods. Hardly any other flavour experience releases such positive feelings; for that reason, highly flavorful vanilla is considered to be the "queen of spices." Our customers profit from the entire range of vanilla flavourings. We cover the whole spectrum in the vanilla segment, from vanillin and natural vanilla flavours up to organic vanilla extracts. Our own in-house extraction systems produce vanilla extracts in a wide variety of concentrations. We use these as the basis for developing vanilla flavours, and of course, our customers can also directly obtain the extracts in organic (BIO), NOP or fair trade quality. As a leading European distributor of vanillin, we are consistently able to offer our customers the complete range of vanilla flavours at competitive prices.
