RP AROMA – The Flavour Workshop
The name RP Aroma refers to Rolf Pottschmidt (RP), as we have separated the flavour development and production division, which has existed under his leadership for 25 years, from Wero GmbH. This allows us to concentrate fully on this area and offer our customers even better products and support.
Due to growing international business relations and as part of an expansion plan, we joined the Asian company Handyware, in 2022. Handyware is a globally operating company with production facilities in most Asian countries, as well as in South Africa and Nigeria.
The main focus of the group of companies is the production of basic materials for food and the development of the associated food technology.
We, RP Aroma GmbH, are the first location in the EU and will continue to expand our European presence.
To secure the future of RP Aroma GmbH, the management was transferred to Stephan Griesel on November 1, 2023. Stephan Griesel has been a part of this company almost since its inception.
Furthermore, since November 2023, we are certified according to ISO 9001 and hold a Halal certificate.
The Team of RP Aroma
Our team at RP Aroma can proudly be described as “small but mighty”. Everyone always has the best possible product for the customer in mind and lends a hand wherever she or he can.
As the head of RP Aroma, Stephan Griesel takes care of all matters concerning the company, including quality assurance. As the creative mind, he continues to create new flavor and fragrance experiences in our flavor development. He is supported by Imme Mölle, who continues to handle production planning, procurement, and other administrative tasks.
Since October 2023, Imke Wolf and Miriam Frölich, two chemical laboratory technicians, have enriched our team in quality assurance and production. Our team is completed by our production manager Mustafa Dabo, who helps us manage the increasing production volume.
Stephan Griesel manages the business operations of the company with chemical expertise and precision. Furthermore, he oversees quality assurance and serves as our Chief Flavor Designer.
