Hi, I'm Amy and i'm the administrator of this site. I've worked at Suma since I left Uni in 2004. I graduated with a degree in digital media, and spend a lot my time online looking after this website, or our wholesale site www.sumawholesale.com. When i'm not working you can find me knee deep in mud at my allotment, or at my imac working on various design projects. I love Suma because i've been a vegetarian for over 10 years, and enjoy working in a meat-free environment. The lunches are top notch too!
