Hi, we’re Suma - an ethical food brand and radical worker cooperative!
Mission - As a worker coop, our ethics are at the heart of everything we do. We are a licensee of the Fairtrade Foundation, selling around 80 different Fairtrade products under our own brand and extolling the virtues of Fairtrade to anyone who will listen!
We also work really hard to minimize our business’ environmental impact. We’ve been using 100% renewable electricity for ages and our office has clever motion sensors switch the lights off when we leave the room. Our reps share a hybrid car, and anything we can’t inventively re-use, we recycle.
We are a vegetarian business and animal welfare is a key consideration with all our products. We’re into healthy eating too, and are always on the lookout for new and exciting products to help you in the quest for a varied and balanced diet. Nothing too ‘out there’ though- we are firm believers in organics and stick to natural, recognisable ingredients, just as nature intended.
Our Products - We have a huge range of Fairtrade, organic wholefoods and fine foods plus Ecoleaf- our own brand of eco-friendly cleaning products! You can buy our products direct by setting up your own food group (www.suma.coop/order/food-groups), or find Suma stuff in all manner of lovely independent shops, restaurants and cafés.
As if that weren’t enough, we are the UK’s biggest independent wholefood wholesaler, supplying our own products and other ethical brands to farm shops, Fairtrade shops, caterers and distributors across the land!
