SUMA Wholefoods

Specialists in Ethical Wholefoods
SUMA Wholefoods

Most of our pantry selection comes from SUMA wholefoods, the UK's largest independent wholefood wholesaler/distributor, specialising in vegetarian, fairly traded, organic, ethical and natural products. They are a worker's co-operative committed to ethical business.

The majority of our eco friendly cleaning products are sourced via SUMA. Ecoleaf are voted the Consumer Best Buy. All products oppose animal testing, have the certified cruelty free status and are suitable for those with a vegan diet. They are affordable, plant based, eco friendly cleaning products with no harsh chemicals - much better for you and the environment. Ecoleaf are based right here in the UK. SUMA also take the 20L drums we use for our refill system back, they recycle them at a local plant near where they are based in Leeds, where they are melted down into new drums! This reduces our carbon footprint even further. They cannot currently be simply refilled due to strict cosmetic standards within the UK, however SUMA are working towards a system whereby the drums will hopefully be able to be refilled in the near future. We work with SUMA predominantly for our household and wholefood items which we cannot source locally, as they are based in Elland, near Leeds. This means one delivery per week on one wagon, rather than lots of small deliveries from different companies all over the UK using different delivery methods, thus reducing our carbon footprint.

Ditch the supermarket and go with Paddock supplies, local where possible, organic always, ethically sound food supplies. We all need this in today's climate.
