January 4, 2023 IN THE CATEGORY: Awards and prizes, Environment, Responsible retailing

Greenpeace has recognised INTERSPAR Austria as ‘Supermarket of the Year’ based on the company’s extensive sustainable product ranges and services. Greenpeace based its ranking on instore assessments and consumer feedback on which domestic supermarket offers the most eco-friendly shopping experience.

INTERSPAR Austria was the annual winner for the 3rd consecutive year. The company was named overall winner in five of the eight categories assessed by the NGO, based on its sustainable range of apple juices and Easter products, organic ice creams, and eco-friendly detergents. The company’s extensive range of peat-free potting soil also received a top rating.

“Through our product ranges and services, we are constantly investing to offer our customers opportunities to live sustainably. Whether it’s packaging-free shopping in our delicatessen departments or the instore filling stations for detergents and cleaning products, people will find an extensive range of sustainable products at INTERSPAR. That’s why I’m pleased that we have once again received an award from Greenpeace for our sustainable product range”, said Johannes Holzleitner, Managing Director at INTERSPAR Austria.

The origins of SPAR in Austria date back to 1954, but the current SPAR AG was created in 1970 when the original founding families joined other regional wholesalers to form SPAR Austria AG – a 100% privately owned Austrian company.

With licences granted by SPAR International, ASPIAG (Austria SPAR International AG) has developed the brand in Slovenia, Hungary, Croatia, and Northern Italy. With sales of €8.3 billion and impressive growth of 16%, SPAR Austria became the market leader in the Austrian grocery trade in 2020, after being a market growth leader for over a decade. It maintained this leadership position in 2021.
