Spar looks to India

This article was originally published in Foodnews

SPAR International, the Dutch grocery chain, is looking for new partners in east and west India. It is understood that the group, which already operates across 35 countries, is interested in launching large supermarkets besides the hypermarket format it already operates in India. Spar is able to circumvent India’s foreign investment rules for multi-brand retail formats, owing to the fact that the chain (unlike its international rivals) does not invest financially in any global markets but enters into license agreements with independent retailers instead.
