Have you ever considered buying food in bulk? Do you prefer to eat organic food, but hate paying the high price at shops? Why not cut out the ‘middle man’ while reducing the cost of food, packaging, and transport, Transition Shipston and Surrounding Communities is considering starting up a food co-op to allow members to do exactly this!
How does it work?
Most co-ops purchase in bulk every 4-6 weeks. Members have a week to place orders from the Suma website www.sumawholesale.coop, and the items are delivered to a single location a few days later. Members take turns volunteering for dividing up the order into individual orders. Ordering is simple and the Suma site has product pictures, special offers, frozen and long-life items among other products.
Have a look at the Suma site and if you are interested please email Jennifer Lanham: firstname.lastname@example.org
