Sparkling range

IT’S definitely looking a lot like Christmas at Spar UK, with plenty of festive own label SKUs for retailers to choose from.

Spar’s Christmas range includes more than 20 fresh food products in festive packaging; Turkey Feast and Wensleydale & Carrot Chutney sandwiches — which come with a promised 10p charity donation from Spar from each individual sale; confectionery including chocolate Santa, medallions and coins; and a revamped mince pie range.

Cath McIlwham, head of brand at Spar said: “The Christmas period is a time when our shoppers have many last-minute parties, and entertaining at home increases dramatically.

“Our Spar Brand range is perfect for casual eating at home, sharing, making Christmas dinner, and gifting.

“We’ve worked hard to make sure our festive offering is ideal for all our Spar retailers and their stores, whatever their size and formats.
