SPAR extends sustainable product range by dozens

The retail chain has made it a priority to continuously extend their range of products that promote sustainability. They already have dozens of sustainable products and now they are adding several new ones such as utensils, plates, glasses, and bin bags made of recycled, biodegradable and natural materials like sugarcane, wood, and paper. These new products will be available for customers in specialised departments of INTERSPAR hypermarkets and major SPAR supermarkets.

“The protection of our natural environment is one of the pillars of SPAR Hungary’s sustainability program and we would like this to be reflected in our product range as well. We have several environmentally friendly products on our shelves that are 100% biodegradable and reusable, which helps reduce landfill. We also encourage our partners and suppliers to prioritise environmentally friendly initiatives. We have added new sustainable products to our constantly expanding green product range, such as our own branded 100% biodegradable binbags made of reusable household waste materials,” explained Márk Maczelka, head of communications at SPAR Hungary.

Customers can purchase our own branded SPAR Eco binbags in five different sizes in our hypermarkets. These binbags are made of recycled materials and feature the German Blue Angel ecolabel certification which sets the highest standards for environmentally-friendly products. Our brand-new biodegradable SPAR Bio binbags are available in two sizes in our INTERSPAR stores for our customers who are committed to sustainability.

Another addition to the chain’s environmentally friendly product range is their own branded SPAR Eco cling film, currently available in INTERSPAR stores. The wrap is made of 95% renewable materials, keeps products fresh, and is easy to tear.

SPAR has added new products to their environmentally friendly utensil line such as teaspoons, tablespoons, forks, knives, dinner plates, soup bowls, glasses, straws, and containers made of sugarcane, wood, and paper. They are 100% biodegradable and compostable, or reusable and washable in dishwasher.

The expansion of our sustainable product range in our bigger sized SPAR stores and all INTERSPAR stores helps our customers who are committed to sustainability, reduce their carbon footprint.
