SPAR Responsible Retailing

As a food retailer present in more than 45 countries around the world, SPAR is committed to adding value to the communities in which we operate. At SPAR, we strive to deliver outstanding service and excellent product assortments to all our customers around the world. As a global brand, we recognise our responsibility to support social and environmental prosperity for all. This sense of responsibility lies at the heart of the SPAR strategy, highlighting that we are ‘Better Together’.

Our Better Together strategy can be traced back to our roots when, in 1932, the SPAR Brand was founded on the principle of cooperation between wholesalers and retailers. Similarly, our Responsible Retailing initiatives today are designed and executed by our various SPAR operators, whom we are proud to call our SPAR family.

As our SPAR Partners face different challenges across the globe, they are able to drive their own initiatives in the communities they serve. As a global business, we aim to tailor our business strategies and priorities to bring real and tangible benefits to local communities.

Our focus on the six key areas of Responsible Retailing at SPAR is fundamental to the role we play as an international food retailer. Our commitments and initiatives across the world, whilst tailored to community-specific needs, are largely focused on health, sourcing, community, environment and supply chain. At the heart of all these initiatives are our people.
