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.

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.
