Growing in a greenspace near you
In September 2014 DUO launched a new ethical food buying group based at the Roseangle Arts Cafe. The aim of the group is to make healthy, ethical, and environmentally friendly food and household products available to individuals and groups at affordable prices.
By enabling access to more fairly traded and sustainable food DUO hope to minimise the need for supermarkets whilst boosting the use of local grocers and health food shops. (If you buy the bulk of your food from an environmentally and economically sustainable source it’s estimated that you’re more likely to top up your fruit, veg and household needs from a local shop rather than a supermarket.)
We use Suma, the workers cooperative and natural food wholesaler based in Yorkshire, as our monthly supplier.* They organise their deliveries on set routes with the aim of minimising their carbon footprint.
If you’d like to join the ethical food buying group please get in touch. It’s easy to place an order and the results can be delicious!
* If you want to know more about our choice to work with Suma – a Yorkshire-based cooperative rather than a Scottish cooperative – we’d be happy to share our reasons.
