“Working together for mutual success”

At A.F. Blakemore our aim is to work collaboratively and effectively with our suppliers for mutual and sustainable benefit. 

Our infrastructure is delivering improved customer service and availability and ultimately increased customer satisfaction, laying the foundations to continue to grow our business sustainably across the retail and wholesale spectrums.  

A.F. Blakemore’s divisions serve a diverse range of markets across the food and drink industry, with our suppliers ranging from small local producers to leading international brands.

Within the convenience sector, A.F. Blakemore is placing increasing emphasis on food to go and fresh, locally sourced products, with many of our SPAR stores now providing a food-to-go offer from leading brands including Subway, Greggs and Costa Coffee in addition to SPAR’s own.
