The 2018 SPAR International Annual Review, published in May of this year, is now available in German, Spanish and Italian, helping to spread global coverage of what was another fantastic year for the SPAR worldwide organisation. In 2018, the company recorded 5.4% growth and €35.8 billion in turnover.

The report summarises the key developments of the past financial year, breaking down performance highlights by region, and providing a recap of SPAR International’s eight scopes of service. Managing Director Tobias Wasmuht also shares an outlook for the future.

“We’re growing ever stronger and ever faster,” said Tobias Wasmuht. “This growth is universal across all regions in which SPAR operates around the world. If we continue at this projection of over 5% compound annual growth that we have been on for the last three years, we’ll be reaching just short of €40 billion turnover by 2020.”

Key performance highlights include:

  • A growth of 335 new stores, bringing the total number of SPAR stores globally to 13,112, which equates to 7,441,838m2of sales area across all SPAR formats
  • The introduction of the brand into four new markets, bringing the total number of SPAR countries to 48 with 246 distribution centres worldwide and 105 regional and wholesale partners
