Founded in 1932

There are now over 13,900 SPAR branded stores in over 48 countries on four continents, meeting the needs of over 14.7 million consumers every day.

The SPAR voluntary food retail concept works on the basis of licensed wholesalers and retailers working in partnership to the benefit of all. 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 community which prevails within the network.
