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!
