At SPAR, our commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond providing a high quality, value-for-money shopping experience. It also involves providing opportunities for employment, growing the skills of our employees, supporting those in need by volunteering time, generating funds for charities, and bringing the local community together through SPAR sponsored sporting events.
Through these activities, SPAR adds value to the communities in which we operate. Even though we have a growing global presence in more than 40 countries around the world, we are fundamentally driven by committed independent retailers who win the trust and loyalty of their local communities.
Our SPAR Partners around the world are involved in the support and sponsorship of numerous charities. Whether at a local, regional or national level, SPAR aims to make a positive contribution wherever possible. The numerous charities sponsored by SPAR impact a variety of causes, including support for children in need and those fighting an illness or disease, the provision of disaster relief, investment in sustainable infrastructure, and the improvement of product processes and quality.
The charitable events and activities that our SPAR Partners organise often bring SPAR employees and members of the local community together. It is this kind of personal involvement that makes a real difference and that sets us apart from our competitors. Our community involvement initiatives are focused on creating awareness of social and environmental causes in order to ensure long-lasting, positive change.
