SPAR is the leading voluntary food retail chain in the world, and its success hinges on its global, yet local, approach to business through the close co-operation of individual retailers in meeting the needs of their customers.  The development of SPAR across the globe 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.
