The fish we sell in the shop is from Paul Utting, a fisherman from Lowestoft, who delivers locally each week on Fridays. We can supply smoked mackerel, smoked haddock which you can find in the chiller, as well as cod and plaice fillets which we freeze along with his fish pie mixes.
Eggs are delivered each week from Gate Farm at Flowton, near Ipswich.
Our bread comes from Capel Bakery, a family-run business. All their bread is baked on their premises in Capel St Mary.
We stock a good range of pulses, grains, nuts and other whole food items which we are fortunate to be able to sell at the same price as our supplier, The Wholefood Store in Manningtree. “Our ambition at The Wholefood Store has always been to seek out the highest quality food from local and international sources. Our passion is food, and we feel most passionate about food that is simple and unadulterated. We steer away from artificial additives, sweeteners, colourings, preservatives and hydrogenated fat. We are committed to selling good food that is ethically sourced, natural, GM free, organic and fair-trade.”
We also order from the Suma Wholefood Co-operative. This is a workers’ co-operative which is owned and managed by all their staff. "All our products are diligently sourced; all are vegetarian and where eggs are an ingredient, they are free-range. We stock organic versions of everything we can, support fair-trade as a licensee of the Fairtrade Foundation and all our bodycare, cosmetic and household products are cruelty-free.”
