SPAR is an international group of independently owned and operated retailers and wholesalers who work together in partnership under the SPAR Brand to provide a high quality, value for money shopping experience for the communities we serve.
Our mission is to ensure that SPAR remains the world’s leading voluntary food retail chain and that we continue to grow our brand, our presence and our partners by working together to enhance the competitiveness, productivity and profitability of our retail and wholesale partners worldwide.
SPAR is the world’s leading voluntary food retail chain. The business started with one Dutch store in 1932 and now comprises more than 13,100 stores in over 45 countries on four continents. The development of SPAR has been underpinned by a set of values that have guided the organisation since its establishment more than 85 years ago. At the heart of these core values is the commitment of SPAR stores worldwide to freshness, choice, quality and service.
Global yet local
The driving force of the success of SPAR is the close co-operation of individual retailers and wholesalers at a local level in meeting the needs of their customers. SPAR is passionate about retailing and is driven by committed independent retailers who win the trust and friendship of their communities. Through a commitment to outstanding service and excellence in fresh foods, SPAR meets the needs of all of its customers.
The consistent execution of the SPAR Brand values of freshness, choice, quality and service attracts the custom and loyalty of consumers all over the world. Whatever the country and retail format, SPAR stores offer consumers a wide range and selection of quality fresh foods and friendly, personal service.
Our SPAR Partners globally continue to innovate in their markets, bringing the brand to an increasingly growing number of customers around the world. This local innovation on a global scale truly makes SPAR global, yet local.
The history of SPAR
The story of SPAR in the early years is the story of Adriaan van Well, an innovative Dutch wholesaler with a clear vision for the future of SPAR. He was inspired by a simple yet powerful philosophy - independent wholesalers and retailers can achieve more by working together than working alone. It was van Well’s belief that only through collaborative work could the independent sector survive and prosper in the face of increasing competition from multiple chains.
The first SPAR store opened in the Netherlands in 1932. It was originally launched as DESPAR, an acronym of a slogan created by van Well to describe the organisation: Door Eendrachtig Samenwerken Profiteren Allen Regelmatig, which translates into English as: All benefit from joint co-operation.
In Dutch, ‘De Spar’ means a fir tree and from the start the fir tree symbol was used to identify the organisation. The seeds for the international development of SPAR were already sown as ‘spaar’, which means ‘save’ in Dutch.
Evidence of the advanced thinking of van Well is seen in the fact that all SPAR stores had the same branding and logo. He also introduced a SPAR Own Brand range to offer customers more choice.
