SPAR China CSR title
Also in October, SPAR China was awarded the prestigious title of Socially Responsible Company by trade and industry body ECR (Efficient Consumer Response) China. The title recognises SPAR China’s timely and efficient measures to safeguard health and safety as well as an adequate supply of goods during the coronavirus pandemic.

Throughout the pandemic, SPAR China partners have used their robust supply chains and logistical capabilities to pool resources and ensure the safe and smooth supply of products and essential services to the communities they serve. New systems were put in place to ensure prompt movement of goods, particularly from agricultural areas where producers had lost access to market.
