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 become the biggest wholesaler and service provider of independent retailers in Cyprus, through expert leadership and support, enabling them to run sustainably profitable and professional businesses.
SPAR is the world’s leading voluntary food retail chain. The business started with one Dutch store in 1932 and now comprises more than 12,500 stores in 44 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 80 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.
All 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.
