New Suma 5L Conditioner
The new Suma brand conditioners are here. Blended to pair perfectly with our existing Suma brand shampoos’, three of our matching conditioners are infused with essential oils to enhance the trickiest of hair types, whilst our Clear and Simple products are just that exceptionally mild and without any fragrance, all are now available in both the large recyclable family sized 500ml bottles, and the 5lt economy size. For added convenience we’ve also introduced a 5lt pump action 30ml dispenser (available separately).
New Pasta In The Suma Range
When we first introduced Suma Organic Cooperative Pasta in 2010 we were really pleased to be awarded the Natural Lifestyle Magazine’s Best Food & Drink Product award as voted for by independent health food stores and their customers.
This month we have added three new varieties to the range – cute Bunny shapes for kids, a superb Tricolour Twist variety with spinach and tomato offering a ‘something special’ option and a Macaroni Chifferini shape.

New Suma Coffee
Our new Café Feminino ground coffee is grown by a cooperative of women producers in Bolivia. They have teamed up with other female growers across South America in an alliance that allows them to actively achieve empowerment and earn a fair income. Another new gem in our range comes from a cooperative farmer’s union in Ethiopia. The Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union.
New Suma Conditioner
Our new range of hair conditioners are available in the essential oil-based scents that you know and love from our shampoo and soap range; zesty Grapefruit and Aloe, exotic Rose Petal and Geranium and soothing White Lavender. For those sensitive souls among you we’ve also introduced a Clear & Simple conditioner, which is exceptionally mild and unfragranced to gently care for your hair.
New Leek and Potato Soup
This straightforward soup contains no unrecognisable ingredients and is just like the kind of soup you’d make at home.
New Suma Bombay Mix
We reckon our existing Bombay Mix (known in India as Chiwda) tastes great, so we thought why not turn the taste levels up a bit? We have added to our range three new exciting and far eastern flavours – fruity mango, lime & coriander and, for the more adventurous, fiery extra hot style.
New Fairtrade Peanut Butter
We like to think of ourselves as a business that pioneers ethical and sustainable products wherever we can, as you might have gathered from our launch of ‘cooperative pasta’ earlier in the year and our conversion to fully recyclable plastic prepack packaging. The next link in the ethical food chain is the launch of our new crunchy peanut butter (GH135) – it’s as delicious as ever but with the added benefit of being Fairtrade too!
The peanuts used to make our butter are sourced from two organic agricultural projects in China; one project is based in Shadong Province and the other in Inner Mongolia. The nuts are cleaned and shelled by the producers, so there is one less link in the supply chain and more of the profits can be returned to the farmers themselves.
Suma Wild Flower Honey
We hear stories all the time about honey not always being exactly as it seems, particularly those shipments bound for countries who’s import laws are not as stringent as our own here in the UK. Apparently it’s not uncommon for honey to be blended with a syrup base to keep costs low, among other things that can compromise the quality.
Here at Suma we keep a very close eye on the origin of all our Brand products and as such we’ve checked that our honey supplier can provide evidence of quality pure crops, and that all EU import legislation is adhered to. To that end we can reassure our customers that our own brand honey has been sourced from superior, unadulterated honey with all its required tests and checks complete.
Our supply chain is very short. Prior to being packaged here in the UK, the honey used in all our blends is mostly cropped by beekeeping cooperatives in China and Mexico often in remote areas. The importer visits the farms regularly, which goes to ensure quality practices, and of course happy bees too!
New Fairtrade Organic Beans
This launch is in keeping with Suma’s commitment to the Fairtrade Foundation and to sourcing products from fellow cooperatives whenever possible. The beans are farmed in a rural Tong Liao City of Inner Mongolia. The farmers belong to the Jurihe/Zhaluteqi Nature Village Farmer Association, a Fairtrade certified cooperative producing around 3,000 tonnes of pulses a year. Farmers reinvest their Fairtrade social premium into community projects such as a well for the village and school equipment for local students. Buy wholesale and view more information here
We launched our first vegan spread way back in the eighties. This was the first vegan spread launched into the UK Market. To this day they remain one of our best sellers. We’ve tweaked the recipe but kept all the flavour, and think you’ll love the luxurious creamy taste and fresh new look of all of our Suma spreads. Sunflower, Soya and Olive Spreads, are now available, delicious for everyday enjoyment, packed full of taste but zero dairy.
Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Products
A unique range of environmentally friendly cleaning products that are non-toxic and safe for use around the home. The Suma Ecoleaf range of cleaning products are derived from plant extracts and are based on biodegradable and non-hazardous ingredients. All of the Ecoleaf range are produced in the UK. The range includes washing up liquid, laundry liquid, fabric conditioner, multi surface cleaner, liquid hand soap and a toilet cleaner.
Canned Beans, Pulses and Vegetables
Our canned products includes all your store cupboard staples and everyday cooking ingredients. Convenient and easy to use our canned beans make a healthy addition to lots of meals, without the need for soaking.

The largest section of our prepacked portfolio comprises of organic foods, with over 175 dried fruit, nuts, seeds, beans, pulses, grains and snacks available. When ever possible we’ll source organic options, and work alongside the Soil Association to bring you the best quality natural produce. Our best selling organic lines are pumpkin seeds, cashew nuts and sunflower seeds, and our customers rave about our organic bombay mix.
Since Suma started in 1977 we have gained a reputation in delivering the finest natural foods. Over time our portfolio has grown, but these staples have always remained at the core of what Suma is about. Providing, healthy, nutritious, vegetarian food.
Our brand range of breakfast mueslis are packed full of fruit, seeds, nuts and delicious oat flakes. Also in our range is Suma’s gluten free muesli, a wonderfully sweet and chewy muesli, perfect for those with a gluten intolerance. It contains rice flakes and buckwheat, as well as lots of fruit and buts. Most of our cereals are available in organic and non organic versions.
Drinks, Beers, and Concentrates
Our brand portfolio includes locally brewed beers, made in the Calder Valley near our Elland warehouse. These bottle conditioned ales are CAMRA approved, Soil Association approved and bear the Vegan Society symbol. On a lighter note, we sell a selection of pure fruit concentrates, which taste delicious when mixed with water.
Suma have worked alongside the BUAV and the Vegan Society to produce luxury, cruelty free bodycare products. All of our products contain natural essential oils or are fragrance free.

Oils and Vinegars
The newest addition to this range are our authentic Italian oils and vinegars. Sourced from the Moderna region of Italy, our balsamic vinegar is from a small, family run business who produce to the finest standards. Our Italian Olive Oil produced in Southern Italy, uses rotondella and carpellese olives, making for a distinctive oil that is redolent of fresh grass, green tomatoes and artichoke. The Suma range also includes Safflower Oil, Sesame Oil, and Sunflower Oil.
Toilet Rolls and Paper Towels
In the mid-80′s we launched the UK’s first 100% Recycled Paper Toilet Tissue. Recently relaunched we’ve improved the tissue quality over the whole range and made it all 100% compostable, including the film wrap.
Pasta Sauces and Pestos
Sumas finest Italian Sauces and Pestos are made from traditional Italian recipes, made with local Italian Organic ingredients. The range of pestos include Genovese made from fresh basil, Pesto Rosso with an intense sundried tomato flavour, and Pesto Alla Siciliana using almonds and lemons.
