SPAR Carnoustie High Street and SPAR Barry Road owned and operated by CJ Lang and Son Limited have recently clubbed together...

> SPAR SCOTLAND CONTINUES SUPPORTING LOCAL CHARITIES

01/12/2017

SPAR Scotland stores owned and operated by CJ Lang and Son Limited continue to support their local charities across Fife!...

Corporate Social Responsibility
Challenge 25It is our stated policy to do everything in our power to ensure that every area of our business operates permanently in a legal, safe and responsible manner.  Wherever in Scotland we trade with our own stores, or deliver to with our lorries, we endeavour to show respect and a high degree of care for local communities.

For example, we were one of the first convenience chains in Scotland to adopt a "Challenge 25" policy to help control the sale of restricted products to young people residing in Scotland.

The way our drivers behave on the road is closely monitored, in real time, to minimise any negative impact on the environment and on the places they travel through.  Our ROSPA Gold Awards are testament to our emphasis on excellent Health and Safety management practices.



Employment & Staff Development 
SPAR Fir Logo PeopleBecause we employ over 2,000 people and many of our stores are located in areas where the opportunity for employment is limited, we can be proud of the positive impact we have on the well-being of local communities.

Thanks to the size of our company, we offer opportunities for advancement and for the development of our people.  Our store staff are provided with regular training delivered by our own team of accredited training professionals.

In addition, not only do we give people jobs directly, but we employ Scottish contractors and trade with our Scottish suppliers so our positive impact is felt by employees of other companies.



Charities
Marie Curie LogoThrough SPAR, we actively support Marie Curie as our national charity.  We do, however, encourage our stores to take part in fundraising for local causes.  Our carrier bag initiative, for example, has raised £200,000 for 37 charities selected locally by our store staff.

It has also contributed to a 40% reduction in usage of carrier bags in our stores so your environment has also benefited.
 



Local Sourcing

Taste Our Best ScotlandUnlike some of our big name competitors, when we say we source products locally, we really do.  Many of our suppliers are Scottish companies so you won't just find "big buck" brands like Irn Bru and Baxters soups on our shelves but also quality products from local butchers, bakers, fresh produce growers and others.

We are proud of our Scottish heritage and believe it is essential for us to work closely with our Scottish suppliers to ensure we support the local communities in which we serve.
 



Healthy Living
Healthier ScotlandThrough our association with the Scottish Grocers Federation, we are members of Scottish Government's Healthy Living initiative which aims to ensure availability of healthy food solutions to those for whom the local shop is their only or primary food shopping destination.
