Spar has launched its health and wellness range, Spar Natural, in Switzerland, to address the growing demand for healthy, organic food.
The range includes vegan, vegetarian, organic, gluten-free, wheat-free, lactose-free and sugar-free products, which are fresh, healthy, nutritious and sustainable, the retailer said.
Presently, Spar Natural offers 20 organic SKUs, in the form of pulses and grains, healthy snacks, spreads, olive oil, chocolate, and coffee.
In the pulses and grains category, it offers white quinoa, red split lentils, wholegrain rolled oats, whole wheat couscous, organic pasta, and brown rice.
Its healthy snacks segment includes organic tortilla chips with sea salt, organic mini corn cakes with rosemary or extra virgin olive oil, and organic fruit bars in two variants – cranberry and almond, or cashew and figs.
In addition to Spar Natural's award-winning Fairtrade hazelnut spread, the range also offers Swiss-made organic Fairtrade chocolate bars in four variants – milk, milk with hazelnut filling, dark (55% cocoa) and extra dark (72% cocoa).
Also available are two selected coffee blends of organically grown, Fairtrade-certified Arabica and Robusta beans in mild or dark roasts.
The coffee range also includes 100% biodegradable and compostable organic coffee, tea and milk capsules that are plastic and aluminium-free.
