Fundraising campaign for flood victims at FREY&LAU

On 14.07.2021, flash floods triggered by heavy rain rolled through the towns along the Ahr river. 134 people lost their lives. Thousands are homeless. Hundreds of buildings were swept away. A great wave of willingness to help and donate is now rolling through FREY&LAU. A donation campaign was quickly organised and three donation canisters were set up in the company and now opened on Thursday, 29.07.2021. The 270 employees of FREY&LAU donated no less than 2,096.60 euros. The management then increased the sum to 10,000 euros. FREY&LAU donated all the money to "Aktion Deutschland hilft".

Vaccination campaign at FREY&LAU – Together against Corona

On Wednesday, 30 June 2021, all FREY&LAU employees and their relatives had the opportunity to be vaccinated by our company doctor, Dr Taubitz. Both first and second vaccinations were offered. A remarkable 101 vaccinations were carried out during this great campaign. Even the weather cooperated on this day - fortunately for all relatives - they of course had to wait outside the door to ensure safety for all participants. FREY&LAU hasn't had this many visitors since the 2019 summer party. Thanks to the great planning of the HR department, everything went smoothly, with little contact and to everyone's satisfaction.

We will only use the best raw materials. Our diverse range of fragrance and flavour substances are used in fragrance compositions, as flavour components in the food sector, and as active pharmaceutical ingredients. Manufacturers of oral care products, chewing gum and animal feed also rely on our extensive assortment.


FREY&LAU supplies aroma chemicals for producing appealing flavour compositions: vanillin and ethylvanillin for use in sweets, raspberry ketone and strawberry furanone to create fruity flavour nuances, menthol and mint oil for fresh, minty tastes, and anethole for spicy-herbal delights. As an expert partner, we immediately find the right solution for whatever our customers need.


A variety of fragrances and aromatic substances go into the creation of well-balanced fragrance composition. Vanillin is often the right choice for sweet and juicy nuances; the addition of aldehyde C14 (peach-aldehyde) is often a must-have. The aroma chemical piperonal (heliotropin) combines vanillin and almond. By contrast, coumarin is used in compositions featuring herbal notes. Ethylene brassylate, a macrocyclic musk, lends warmth and adhesion to a fragrance. At FREY&LAU, our customers find experts who are at home in the world of fragrances.


Only exceptional flavour ensures ultimate enjoyment. Whether in food, beverages and snacks or in a cough drop flavoured with a blend of eucalyptus oil and menthol: Our raw materials enhance most of our everyday foods, strengthening the final products success. Most baking mixes, cakes, ice creams and chocolates only truly develop their delicious taste when vanillin has been added. Chewing gum and lozenges get their fresh kick from menthol, mint oil or peppermint oil. Without the enhancement of essential oils, many foods would lack their characteristic smell and taste.


Our aroma chemicals are widely used in the feed industry. Vanillin and cinnamaldehyde are commonly used for feed products. Due to their traditional properties and flavouring potential, thymol, carvacrol and various essential oils are being added to animal feed mixes. We have a GMP+ certification for our additives business, particularly for this specific application.
