According to the splash page on their website, Suma is the UK’s largest independent wholesaler and distributor of quality vegetarian, fairly traded, organic and natural foods. There are around 7,000 products listed that they either make or distribute. You can now add one more to their list: organic beer.
Today’s Yorkshire Post gave a few scant details on the project. From the article:
The UK’s biggest independent distributor of organic food, Halifax-based Suma Foods, has launched a range of organic beers. The beers are all CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) approved, certified organic by the Soil Association and are vegan.
The beer is brewed locally by a Dutch master brewer who the company has been working with over the past 18 months to develop the range.
The names for the beers were chosen by Suma’s customers in a competition and reflect local places and folklore in the Calder Valley.
Though curiously the names of the beers were not revealed and Suma’s somewhat sparse website gives no details either. Now that’s good reporting.
