Spar to enter Indonesia

Dutch supermarket chain Spar is further growing its Asian business with plans to move into Indonesia.

It has partnered with Ramayana Lestari Sentosa to open more than 30 supermarkets across Indonesia within the next three years, the first of which will open before the end of this year.

Ramayana is a retail group with 118 stores throughout Indonesia trading under the Ramayana, Robinson and Cahaya brand names.

“Our new partnership with Ramayana in Indonesia is consistent with Spar International’s strategic focus on partnering with leading local and regional chains in growth markets in Asia,” said Tobias Wasmuht, international retail director, Spar International.

Spar has over 12,000 stores worldwide and global retail sales of €32.2 billion in 2013.
