It may suprise you to know that many famous Italian recipes are, in fact, vegan! Favourites such as focaccia, bruschetta, pizza marinara, pasta alla norma and pasta al pomodoro! Filippo Berio Olive Oils, in themselves, are a wonderful source of plant-based healthy monounsaturated fats. We have also introduced some new vegan products including our award-winning vegan pestos and pasta sauces!
What is Veganism? THE VEGAN SOCIETY DEFINE VEGANISM AS:
“A way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. There are many ways to embrace vegan living. Yet one thing all vegans have in common is a plant-based diet avoiding all animal foods such as meat (including fish, shellfish and insects), dairy, eggs and honey -as well as products like leather and any tested on animals.”
THE GROWTH OF VEGANISM
In 2018 Filippo Berio took part in ITV’s ‘The Big Audition’ casting show and, as a result, we met and hired Vegan author and social media star, Brett Cobley (known to his thousands of fans as ‘EpiVegan’).
Brett features in our Vegan recipe video collection but, with veganism growing rapidly and moving into the mainstream market, Filippo Berio have created a whole range of resources to support anyone who is already Vegan or simply want to experiment with more plant-based foods. From quick, healthy snacks to signature dinners, Vegan Italian is a wonderful resourse for any vegan or, indeed anyone who enjoys exceptional food!
