For the third year running, Greenpeace names INTERSPAR Austria as Supermarket of the Year.

January 5, 2023

Based on the company’s extensive sustainable product ranges and services, Greenpeace has named INTERSPAR Austria “Supermarket of the Year.” Greenpeace based its ranking of which domestic supermarket provides the most environmentally friendly shopping experience on in-store evaluations and customer feedback.

For the third year in a row, INTERSPAR Austria came out on top to take home the annual prize. Because of its sustainable range of apple juices and Easter products, organic ice creams, and environmentally friendly detergents, the company was named the overall winner in five of the eight categories evaluated by the NGO. This achievement was made possible by the company’s commitment to environmental stewardship. The extensive selection of peat-free potting soil that the company offers has also been given a high rating.

“We are constantly investing to offer our customers opportunities to live in a more sustainable manner through the product ranges and services that we provide. People will find a wide variety of environmentally friendly products at INTERSPAR, whether they are looking for shopping without any packaging in our delicatessen departments or using the in-store filling stations for detergents and cleaning products. According to Johannes Holzleitner, the Managing Director of INTERSPAR Austria, “I am pleased that we have once again received an award from Greenpeace for our sustainable product range.”
