WE BELIEVE IN GOOD FOOD, FOR YOU & THE PLANET

THE JOURNEY OF SUMA

We’ve always believed in making plant-based eating easy and nutritious. From beans and pulses to vegan convenience foods we’ve been leading the way. Here’s how we’ve innovated over the years

1977

We were supplying in bulk to stores where you could fill bags with rice, pulses and grains, way back in the ‘70s before refill stations were a thing.

2000

We beat major supermarket retailers to market with Organic Sunflower Spread. We were supplying local health food stores on the high street.

2016

We were the first to the UK market with our Baked Beans and Vegan Sausages; a classic made easy. It was soon followed by more dishes in our exciting vegan convenience range.

YOU SUPPORT FARMER CO-OPS

We trade with farmer co-ops to support their autonomy and ensure a fair and resilient livelihood for everyone in the supply chain. Look out for details on farmer co-op suppliers on our product pages. For instance, when you buy any of these products you are supporting a co-op.
