Founded in 1932

the SPAR business continues to be a great success. There are now more than 13,600 SPAR stores in over 48 countries on four continents, meeting the needs of over 14.5 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.
