Up and up: Frey + Lau is building

Higher, faster, further? Frey + Lau is focused more on precision, faster, better – especially at the new rectification plant which is being built on our company premises. We are already successfully operating our existing plants at the highest technical level: they are used for cleaning, fractionating and concentrating essenti al oils and deliver excellent natural building blocks for the development of flavours and fragrances.

As the demand for our high-quality products is constantly growing, Frey + Lau is now investing in another batch vacuum rectification plant.A new hall, which also provides space for further distillation plants as well as a filling room and a new technical center, will also include the new rectification system - a 13 metre-high technical masterpiece made of shiny stainless steel. It will expand the distillation capacities of Frey + Lau by 40 % and allow us to fractionate even more precisely.

The new plant combines excellent separation performance with even more volume and also has state-of-the-art automation technology with which we want to go in the future. In June 2017 felt the starting shot for the new construction project. The plant will be put into operation in the first quarter of next year - we will keep you up to date.

IHK Vocational Qualification Certificate in just one year

From nothing to a vocational certificate in one year: As part of a unique project in cooperation with the Bundesagentur für Arbeit (German Federal Employment Agency), the IHK (Chambers of Industry and Commerce), and the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein (Schleswig-Holstein Business Academy), Frey + Lau GmbH has enabled five employees to retroactively obtain a recognized and accredited vocational qualification. The project is made possible by the “external students' examination” process. The German Federal Employment Agency supports this measure by providing financial support for training course fees, travel expenses, teaching materials and wage subsidies within the scope of the “WeGeBau” initiative, a Germany-wide program offered to employees over 45 years of age and those who do not have any usable certified vocational training.

Vocational qualification made easy? Far from it: the employees had to intensively study and prepare for the regular theory portion of the exam as well as the practical examination in just one year, on a part-time basis – a study course which would usually take two to three years at a vocational college. This can only be possible with full support from family and colleagues – and with so much backing, all five employees accomplished their goal and successfully passed the exam with good results. Unskilled employees thus became “Chemical Production Specialists” or “Warehouse Logistics Technicians”.

Frey + Lau is a co-initiator of the project and helped support it financially. CEO Claas Nendel says: "We feel strongly connected to our staff, and as a growing company, we are continuously looking for qualified, skilled employees to join us. It was therefore a logical step for us to enable our unskilled employees to document their expertise and know-how by obtaining a vocational qualification. Acquiring the specialized knowledge also lets employees understand their tasks better, and so the quality of work increases as a result.”

With the CAPSO® technology, Frey + Lau has developed a groundbreaking process for manufacturing encapsulated flavor granules. The extraordinary matrix of the CAPSO® flavor granules and the innovative extrusion process ensures shelf life of at least three years, even for citrus flavors that are especially oxidation-sensitive. Their shelf life and water solubility make the granules exceptionally well-suited for flavored tea. The consumer enjoys the full flavor profile as a result, since the liquid flavor is gently integrated into the CAPSO® granule. The granules are characterized by their first-rate mechanical stability, easy handling and very low hygroscopy. We have a very extensive range of different flavors in various sizes, colors and shapes, permanently in stock.

CAPSOPEARL®


Full flavor at the right time: Our proprietary CAPSOPEARL® flavor granules are produced in the form of high-quality pearls. The flavor is only released when they contact water.

Full flavor at the right time: Our proprietary CAPSOPEARL® flavor granules are produced in the form of high-quality pearls. The flavor is only released when they contact water. As a result of their extremely long shelf life and high solubility in hot and cold liquids, these granules are very well suited for flavoring fine-cut tea, tea blends, coffee and instant beverages. CAPSOPEARL® flavor granules are distinguished by high mechanical stability and excellent flowing properties, allowing them to be optimally processed. We produce CAPSOPEARL® flavor granules for our customers in all conceivable flavor varieties, from bergamot to spearmint, from natural pear to wild berry.

CAPSOFLAKE®


Flavorful flakes: Frey + Lau developed the CAPSOFLAKE® flavor granules especially for flavoring fruit and herbal teas, both fine cut and medium cut. Due to their green, blue-violet and brown colors, the flavor flakes in the tea blend are not visible to the consumer’s eye. They are also ideal for flavoring tea blends in pyramid bags. As a result of their special matrix, CAPSOFLAKES® always remain dimensionally stable during transport and processing..

CAPSOSTICK®


Full flavor is the peak of enjoyment: Due to their needle-like shape, CAPSOSTICK® flavor granules from Frey + Lau are especially used for flavoring rooibos tea. For the fast-growing pyramid bag segment, CAPSOSTICK® flavor granules also offer many advantages. Due to their size and shape, they cannot be differentiated from the tea blend itself. The dyed flavor granules are available in brown or black and do not change the color of the tea bag.

CAPSOLEAF®


Flavorsome leaves: With our largest CAPSO® flavor granules, we have recreated the shape of a tea leaf. CAPSOLEAF® flavor granules are perfect for flavoring black, fruit and green teas, both coarse cut and medium cut. Despite their large surface, they have a shelf life of at least three years. CAPSOLEAFS® are available in violet-red, green, brown or black. The colored granules do not change the color of the tea bag in the final product.
