A culture of caring
We are a part of the community and community is like family. We strive to give you the highest quality produce, the freshest meats, and granny-approved baked goods, all at the right price, every day.
Our 6 distribution centres, servicing over 850 stores, allow us to offer our communities exactly what they need at just the right price.
From our fresh produce to our meat and baked goods, we constantly strive to source the best quality products at affordable prices. After all, you’re a part of our SPAR family and family deserve the best.
In the 1960’s with the emergence of grocery chains in South Africa, a group made up of 8 wholesalers were given exclusive rights to the SPAR name and brand in 1963, and serviced 500 small retailers.
Over time and through many mergers and takeovers, today the SPAR Group Ltd operates 6 distribution centres and 1 Build it distribution centre, supplying goods and services to over 1 000 SPAR stores across Southern Africa.
