Corporate Responsibility

Blakemore Trade Partners is committed to working in partnership with retailers to help promote responsible business practice. 

Here’s just a snapshot of our commitment to making a difference: 


Supporting Local Producers

Blakemore Trade Partners provides retailers with easy access to a ‘Best of British’ food and drink range that consists of more than 1,000 locally sourced product lines. 



Contributing to the Community

Retailers across the Meridian & Welsh Guild have helped SPAR UK raise more than £5 million for the NSPCC since 2006. Thousands have also been raised for local good causes.


Promoting Energy Efficiency

Blakemore Design & Shopfitting works with retailers to improve energy efficiency and reduce costs. Chilled cases with double-glazed doors, LED lighting and other energy-saving measures are installed where possible. 



Helping Retailers to Recycle

Blakemore Trade Partners works in partnership with retailers to help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill. SPAR stores can return their product packaging and food waste to A.F. Blakemore’s recycling centre.
