In October 2021 Ethical Consumer viewed the Suma website and found that it was a co-operative in which all workers received equal pay. "A co-operative of ordinary people built on integrity and equality, we’re a worker co-op, a business owned and run by the nearly 200 people who work here. We don’t have any bosses or shareholders. We, Suma’s employees, set the direction of the business. Everyone has an equal say in what we do. We all get paid the same wage, take responsibility and each do a range of jobs each week, from truck driving to cooking to accounts." It therefore received half a positive Company Ethos mark.
