More than 80 years after the founding of SPAR,

the business continues to be a great success. There are now more than 12,500 SPAR stores in 44 countries on four continents, meeting the needs of over 13 million consumers every day.

The SPAR concept was established on the basis of wholesalers and retailers working in partnership to the benefit of all, including customers. The cornerstone of this partnership is a commitment to the open exchange of knowledge and information. This commitment is a hallmark of the organisation and is intimately connected to the sense of SPAR as a family.
