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.

Signing of the IFRA-IOFI Sustainability Charta

On the 1st of July the IFRA-IOFI Sustainability Charta was released. With our signature beneath and inside. As a member of the national associations DVAI (German Association of the Flavour Industry) and DVRH (German Association of the Fragrance Industry) we helped developing and realizing the Charta on the international level of the IFRA (International Fragrance Association) and the IOFI (International Organization of the Flavour Industry). The Charta cover all spans of sustainability and takes a life-cycle approach. Based on the 5 focus areas responsible sourcing, environmental footprint, well-being of employees, product safety and transparency and partnership. As a family business we are looking further ahead than many other companies. We want our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to be healthy, happy and successful. This goal can only be achieved though a path of long-term planning, particularly with regard to nature and people. There is one Earth only and we must protect her!

On the path to market-readiness, we support our customers with a wide range of services during the entire development process. From the creation and presentation of innovative fragrance concepts, individually tailored to the respective industry and desired application area, up to the evaluation of the fragrances in extensive application and stability tests. Reviews of legal criteria, IFRA conformity and monitoring with respect to environmental criteria and consumer standards are services which you can of course expect at FREY&LAU.


FREY&LAU stands for superior quality, technical expertise and flexible solutions for all aspects of fragrance production. Three points which, alongside our choice of raw materials, are key elements in guaranteeing our customers' fullest satisfaction. We produce fragrance compositions, concentrates, emulsions and ready-to-use compounds in the shortest possible time.
Whether in small quantities or uniform batches up to 25 tons, as just-in-time production, annual contracts or spontaneous orders – we are not satisfied until our customers are just as excited about our fragrances as we are.

Product Development

Developing fragrances is our passion. The composition of a fragrance profile begins with the idea in the perfumer’s mind; creating the right recipe, however, requires outstanding olfactory senses. Our perfumers are both artists and profound experts in the branch. They combine creativity with technical knowledge and can draw on their vast experience when creating fragrances, enabling them to develop new and unique fragrance compositions every day. These compositions are aligned with current market trends and pass our stringent application tests. Our customers profit from holistic project management, which is based on the close integration of marketing, sales and development at FREY&LAU.

Application Technolgy

Our customers are always on the safe side: Using broad-based application technology, we monitor all products with respect to their intended use. Our fragrances are thoroughly examined and analyzed in complex tests to determine their performance properties and individual usability in the final product. In addition, we perform extensive stability tests and examine the fragrances for stability, color trueness and physical properties. During this process, we work in compliance with cosmetics regulations and take all IFRA guidelines into account. We always keep up to date with the latest legislation.
