Hi Linz
Over in Kippen here. We have a village co-op using Suma Wholefoods. We do an order once a month. You can view a current catalogue online. We used to use Greencity based in Glasgow but for various reasons decided to go with Suma.It works well we have one person who co-ordinates the orders, a central delivery point and folk collect.Check out the catalogue.

We've thought about doing this before in Clackmannanshire. A freind of ours is involved in a Suma one in Thornhill. We woudl certainly be interested and know others who might be, too.
