After seven successful Congresses “Pigments in Food”, starting in Sevilla, Spain (1999) and passing through Lisbon, Portugal (2002), Quimper, France (2004), Stuttgart-Hohenheim, Germany (2006), Helsinki, Finland (2008), Budapest, Hungary (2010), and Novara, Italy (2013), we are pleased to announce that, the  eighth event will be held in Cluj-Napoca, capital or Transylvania region, Romania.

The aim of this 2016 congress is to offer better choices for scientists to show their advance in scientific and technological topics, related to pigments in food, from their chemical characterization, to (bio)technological production and formulation, stability, metabolism and finally to focus on health effects and benefits. 

Academic and industrial scientists from all over the world are invited to submit their work via oral or poster presentation. Contributions on any aspects of pigments in food are welcome, the session’s topics being well adapted to cover six important and outstanding directions of research and technology development.

We are delighted to offer you, meanwhile, the opportunity to visit the historical city of Cluj-Napoca, to enjoy the traditional food and life in the beautiful Transylvanian landscape and to discover its cultural and academic heritage!

Pigments in Food- VIII 2016 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania are dedicated to health benefits!
