Organic Food doesn’t need to be expensive (watch)

Suma is the UK’s largest independent wholefood wholesaler/distributor, specialising in vegetarian, fairly traded, organic, ethical and natural products. We are a workers’ co-operative committed to ethical business.

This is an interesting video with some inspiration what we all could do together. Ordering with Suma does and will make a difference not only to our personal lives but also to the workers who grow and harvest the products we eat. Go organic. Go Suma.

Lovely video from a lady who buys at Suma wholefood together with all her friends. Organic wholefood doesnt need to be expensive.

Suma is the UK’s largest independent wholefood wholesaler/distributor, specialising in vegetarian, fairly traded, organic, ethical and natural products. We are a workers’ co-operative committed to ethical business.

Workers co-operative

Unlike most UK companies, Suma operates a thoroughly democratic system of management that isn’t bound by the conventional notions of hierarchy. As a workers’ co-operative the business is jointly owned and managed by all of us. Everyone is paid the same and we collectively do all the jobs that need doing, whatever they happen to be.
For more information about co-operatives visit www.uk.coop

Buying Ethics

All our products are diligently sourced; all are vegetarian and where eggs are an ingredient, they are free-range. We stock organic versions of everything we can, support fair-trade as a licensee of the Fairtrade Foundation and all our bodycare, cosmetic and household products are cruelty-free.

Vegetarian

We are one of the few businesses in the UK that sell only vegetarian produce. You can be assured that all of our products are 100% vegetarian from our sweets to our tooth-brushes. That means no meat, no fish and no animal derived nasties like gelatin or rennet. We are also a member of the Vegetarian Society, who aide us in promoting a healthy, vegetarian lifestyle.
www.vegsoc.org

Environment

As a distribution business we’re acutely aware of the impact that business has on the environment at local and global levels and continually strive to keep it to a minimum.

We’ve been using 100% renewable electricity for ages and even then our motion sensors switch the lights off when we leave the room. Our reps share a hybrid car. We take back plastic and cardboard packaging from our customers and what we can’t re-use, we recycle. Food waste is composted. We plant enough trees with Treesponsibility to get carbon neutral status and have an appointed carbon champion keeping a constant eye on our footprint. And we have vehicle tracking which means we make every delivery mile count.

Fair-trade

At Suma we have always acknowledged our responsibility to the people who grow the food, which is why we are a licensee of the Fairtrade Foundation. Our commitment to fair trade is not a marketing device, it is one based on a deeply held belief in a universal right to economic justice, self-empowerment and freedom from exploitation.

Why organic, sustainable farming matters – Portrait of a farmer (watch)

When it comes to your food, nature always has the last word.

Most pro-organic documentaries make their point by taking stabs at the cruelty and other evils involved in the world of industrialized farming. In this short documentary portrait, Jesse Straight, owner of Whiffletree Farm, shows us a different approach. As he gestures to the beautiful landscapes that surround us he explains, “being a farmer is special because this is my office. You spend your day making animals happy…you get to do things that help the things around you thrive”.

The passion that Jesse exudes in this film will make you question every fast-food burger you’ve ever eaten, but for all the right reasons.
