Despite today’s harsh conditions we have not stood still, we continue to provide a basis for action towards IVU’s mission. We are working diligently to update our old collection of vegan recipes. IVU was a pioneer in publishing vegan recipes on the Internet. We have successfully accumulated thousands of recipes over the past few decades, creating an invaluable encyclopedia of timeless recipes, submitted to us from members and sympathizers around the world. It's precisely because we pioneered this way of publishing vegan recipes, that its presentation methods have now become obsolete. Today's generations are accustomed to images and videography providing a certain element of convenience. Hence the requirement for a complete update.

So, we are proud to introduce you to the newly established Vegan Food Academy, a vegan cooking school that aims to bring together recipes from all over the world, providing a platform to showcase and celebrate unique food cultures, ingredients, preparation techniques, spices, flavors, and colors.

If you would like to contribute a recipe or if you would like to learn more about this exciting IVU Project, please send a e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can return you the requirements to post your recipe inside the VFA.

47th IVU World Vegfest Report

ivu meeting

IVU Vegfests come and go and the 2019 edition has just come to the end. Every IVU Vegfest is different and every one is good - with peculiarities unique to the local, the hosting country and hosting group.

The 47th IVU Vegfest fit pretty much the moto chosen by ProVeg, our main host: IVU World Vegfest Goes Vegan Summer Festival Berlin. This was very much the case, as it was more a visit than an integral participation as is often the case. Still, IVU had some participation in
every aspect of the event: some talks in the main tent, an artistic presentation and our IVU Network Tent - which worked well as a space to meet, talk and share experiences. IVU’s high point at this Vegfest was the IVU Leaders and Simpatizers Meeting, held at the ProVeg office.
