The Suma story starts in Leeds in 1975 when Reg Taylor and a few other wholefood boffins got together to create their own co-op. Flash forward a good few years and Suma are one rather well respected bunch. They’ve just been awarded Co-operative of the Year (2014) for starters, and for mains their stance on ethical food is seconds to none. So when it came to sourcing our own range of fantastic store cupboard things, Suma were the obvious choice. We’ve rustled up something truly fantastic with Suma - amazing and ethical rice, pulses, grains and polenta more where that came from. We hope it sets your pulses racing.
