Our responsible retailing strategy

As a food retailer, SPAR contributes to the communities in which we operate in many different ways. Community involvement is a core value of our brand, starting in 1932 when independent retailers and wholesalers founded SPAR. From providing employment through to supporting those in need by volunteering time or generating funds for charities, SPAR adds value to local communities.

SPAR's Nutrition Strategy

Health and nutrition are two issues high up on our agenda. SPAR is a strong believer in the need to provide consumers with good quality products and the relevant nutritional information to ensure a balanced, healthy diet. As such, all International SPAR Own Brand products feature labels with nutritional information.

SPAR recognises the benefits of exercise and sports sponsorship is another important part of our business. Partnerships between SPAR retailers and local schools and sports clubs reflect the involvement with communities. Support comes in many forms including volunteer time, fundraising efforts instore, provision of equipment and financial arrangements.

We have also developed the SPAR Nutrition Zone, a website aimed at helping customers achieve a healthy lifestyle by offering basic exercise tips, recipes and nutritional information about the foods we consume on a daily basis.
