Sales were realised in the value of HUF 516.4 billion, exceeding last year’s level by 5.2 percent. In September 2016 the number of SPAR franchise stores reached 100 – 43 new franchise stores opened last year as part of the SPAR partner programme.

This year SPAR Hungary plans to invest HUF 23 billion in development and in opening new stores. At the moment shoppers can choose from 2,300 private label products in SPAR stores. SPAR is the only retailer in Hungary to operate their own meat plant. What is more, in 2016 more than 300 workers took part in training programmes at the processing plant.

CSR activities form an integral part of SPAR Hungary’s business strategy. The aid programme – the basis of which is – that was developed two years ago ensures transparency for the company and guarantees a level playing field for those who apply for funding. Last year SPAR Hungary donated HUF 22 million to various organisations and institutions. (x)
