BIOFLAVOUR 2022 - Biotechnology of Flavours, Fragrances and Functional Ingredients

27. - 30. September 2022
DECHEMA-House, Frankfurt/Main, Germany
A warm welcome to Bioflavour 2022

Scientific exchange is the fundamental basis for technological change and progress, even more after the extensive restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bioflavour 2022 offers a unique opportunity for scientists active in the field to refresh established contacts as well as to socialize with new colleagues.

Bioflavour 2022 is the conference for researchers and industry experts working on the biotechnological production of flavours, fragrances and functional ingredients.

Keynote Speakers



Bioflavour 2022 cordially invites scientists from all over the world to discuss cutting-edge research and future perspectives in this prospering field of biotechnology of flavours, fragrances and functional ingredients. With over 190 participants from 25 different countries, the last Bioflavour in 2018 was even more successful than the first one in 2015. Again, the conference featured a 40% share of industrial attendees, emphasizing the industrial relevance of the conference scope.

Bioflavour 2022 acknowledges the fast progressing industrial transformation towards a bioeconomy and the push in the chemical industry to develop green and sustainable processes. Here, biotechnology plays a key strategic role. In this context, biotechnology is recognized as providing the tools and expertise to establish sustainable production routes starting from renewable resources rather than relying on fossil sources. Companies and research groups are on their way to develop microbial and plant cell based factories to produce flavours, fragrances and bioactives. Their use in foods, beverages, cosmetics, agricultural and pharmaceutical products is a sought-after application of high commercial value.

Bioflavour 2022 will address disciplines and technologies such as plant biology, microbiology, olfaction and taste reception, systems and synthetic biology, metabolic and enzyme engineering, cell factories, biocatalysis, fermentation and bioprocessing. Different classes of natural compounds used as flavours, fragrances and functional ingredients and their biotechnological production will be covered. Novel developments and future trends in cell factory or plant based production will be addressed as well. Furthermore, modern biotechnological approaches for foods and beverages, e.g. those with respect to taste and aroma, nutritional value, and health-promoting properties, will be discussed. Finally, the identification of beneficial functionalities of flavours and the screening for flavour substitutes and modulators by cell-based assays will be discussed as well.

Bioflavour 2022 will not only provide cutting-edge science, but will also give enough time for networking, socializing and good local food and drinks. Our social program will include a welcome reception in Frankfurt, and an excursion to a vineyard, and the conference dinner in the renowned wine region Rheingau!

We are very much looking forward to meeting you for an inspiring Bioflavour 2022 conference from September 27th to 30th 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany!
