Wholefoods specialist Suma joins the FWD

Vegetarian and eco-friendly wholesaler Suma Wholefoods, with turnover of £50 million, has joined the Federation of Wholesale Distributors.

Based in the Elland district of Leeds, Suma was formed 40 years ago as a worker co-operative and currently has 166 members dealing with around 7,000 product lines. Most are from a wide range of suppliers, with 1,500 marketed under the Suma and Ecoleaf brands.

Suma specialises in ambient and chilled goods, but arrangements can also be made for those wanting frozen foods. Major product sectors include plant-based foods, gluten-free products and ‘healthy’ snacks and soft drinks.

Deliveries are made throughout the UK, utilising 18 leased vehicles, ranging from 7.5-tonners to articulated lorries.

Products are also exported to around 120 countries through Suma’s partners, Ramsden International (formerly operating as Nisa International).

Suma national account manager Gary Scott told Cash & Carry Management: “We supply every major wholefood/organic/vegetarian wholesaler in the UK and Ireland. We are also increasingly supplying mainstream wholesalers and foodservice companies.”
