Transport yourself to the heart of Italy this summer with artisan vegan Italian food delivered straight to your door


Summer is here (finally!), and to celebrate, Amazon has launched its ‘Made in Italy‘ week, showcasing the very best artisan Italian products. From food and drink to beauty and clothing, there are so many wonderful products to choose from.

In celebration of Made in Italy week, we’ve rounded up the very best vegan food and drink products available to transport you to Italy, without needing to get on a plane!

Italy is the home of artisans, with so many of their foods being handmade using local and fresh ingredients. Not only is this practice beneficial for the communities of Italy, but using local, seasonal ingredients is better for the environment.

And what’s more, there are so many delicious vegan Italian recipes to conjure up using these fantastic ingredients.

From Extra Virgin Olive Oil and freshly canned chopped tomatoes to quality coffee beans and even vegan hazelnut spread, there are so many wonderful Italian foods that will keep you coming back for more and more.

Best vegan Italian food and drink

Le Terre di Colombo – 100% Italian Biological Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Buy now on Amazon – £12.34

 Le Terre di Colombo – 100% Italian Biological Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil is one of the greatest Italian products – its bold flavour, golden colour, and versatility make it the most loved oil (in our opinion, anyway).

Despite being one of the most natural oils, the production of some olive oils leads to mass waste and excessive use of water and land.

Thankfully, Italy’s Le Terre di Colombo has produced an organic biological oil which is more sustainable and better for the environment.

Cultivated from local Italian olives, this oil is bursting with herbaceous flavour with subtle notes of artichoke.


Fabalous Organic Crunchy Chocolate Spread
Buy now on Amazon – from £6.45

Faba-lous hazlenut and cocoa spread

As vegans, we’ve had to miss out on the likes of Nutella and other chocolatey spreads, until now!

Fabalous has created a tasty chocolate hazelnut spread that is high in protein and is dairy- and palm oil-free.

Each jar contains 128 chickpeas, which adds extra protein to the spread, as well as added fibre and minerals.

What’s more, chickpeas naturally release nitrogen into the air when they grow, helping to improve our soil and air, making Fabalous’ cocoa spread a sustainable choice.


Mutti Finely Chopped Tomatoes
Buy now on Amazon – From £5.50

Mutti crushed tomato can

There’s often a slight disappointment whenever we buy supermarket tinned tomatoes as they seem to be lacking in natural fresh flavours, especially when you compare them to Italian tinned tomatoes like these crushed tomatoes from Mutti.

Exclusively using Italian tomatoes, Mutti has been processing tomatoes for over 100 years.

These crushed tomatoes have been awarded the Great Taste Award 2016 and are praised for their sweet, fresh, and juicy taste. Perfect in vegan curries and pasta recipes.

Garofalo Orecchiette Pasta
Buy now on Amazon – From £2.75

Orecchiette pasta

We know there can be confusion around pasta, with many people asking ‘Is pasta vegan?‘. Thankfully, there are plenty of egg-free pastas readily available, even in Italy!

Made in Naples, Garofalo has been making vegan pasta since 1789, following the traditional Southern Italy pasta-making method which does not include eggs. Today, it continues to make authentic pasta using traditional methods combined with modern technology and artisan ingredients.

Forget the usual supermarket penne and enjoy a large variety of Garofalo’s vegan pasta shapes available, including this Orecchiette pasta.

Orecchiette is the perfect pasta for saucy dishes as its slight bowl shape allows it to scoop up all the delicious sauces and ingredients for you to enjoy in one mouthful.

Lavazza Crema e Aroma
Buy now on Amazon – £14.20

Lavazza Creme coffee beans

It’s no secret that Italy is famous for its love of espresso and all things coffee. So it makes sense to buy coffee that is roasted in Italy, like Lavazza.

With a blend of arabica and robusta coffee beans, Lavazza Crema E Aroma coffee is roasted to medium intensity to give its signature rich taste and creamy texture.

It’s perfect ground up for a morning espresso or used in your oat milk caffe latte. The recyclable packaging is resealable for long-lasting freshness.

Giusti Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
Buy now on Amazon – £29.00

Italian Balsamic Vinegar

Balsamic Vinegar from the supermarket is nice, but Balsamic Vinegar from Modena is better, specifically this Balsamic Vinegar of Modena from Guiseppe Giusti.

Guiseppe Giusti has been producing vinegar in Italy since 1605 and is still considered one of the most prestigious vinegar producers in the world.

Aged for at least 12 years, Giusti’s Balsamic Vinegar is more than just a great-tasting condiment. Balsamic Vinegar has a number of health benefits, including helping reduce the risk of heart disease and is considered a natural pain reliever1.

Malfy Con Arancia Sicilian Blood Orange Flavoured Italian Gin
Buy now on Amazon – £24.99

Blood Orange Malfy Gin

Craving sunshine in a glass? Malfy Con Arancia Blood Orange Gin is inspired by the Amalfi Coast and is made using a blend of Italian oranges and Sicilian blood oranges, packing a citrus punch with a hint of juniper.

Distilled in Northern Italy, the deep orange colour of this gin is enough to transport you to the coast of Italy. Pair with your favourite tonic and enjoy – Malfy recommends Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic water.

Please drink responsibly.
