What we do - our love of food

We provide quality food services to companies, hospitals, schools, universities and a range of other organizations. Our expertise also includes retail services, food delivery, meal and food vouchers as well as digital food ordering services and apps.  We offer healthy, varied, balanced meals with seasonal produce, while balancing our use of natural resources with our clients’ operating contexts, and our guests' budgets.

We have been investing in the quality of our food offer for more than 60 years. We do this by:

How we create wonderful food experiences

We place our guests at the heart of what we do

Why just create a meal when you can create an experience? We recognize that our guests have different tastes and needs, influenced by the time of day and whether they feel like healthy options, comfort food, adventure or indulgence. Our options provide our guests with the balance that’s right for them, whether it’s a leisurely dining, special event or the convenience of takeaway.

We source our ingredients responsibly and sustainably

Transparency and authenticity are driving food choices. Our supply chain is often linked to our presence in local markets, where we work with farmers, bakers and producers. The ingredients we buy meet sustainable and responsible sourcing standards. By sourcing more local and seasonal produce, we can continue to reduce our environmental impact and contribute to the community around our client sites

We are serious about health and wellness

We are committed to developing health and wellness solutions for our clients, guests and employees; advocating balanced meal options and encouraging reduced intake of sugar, salt and saturated fats at our client sites. By promoting good nutrition and physical activity, along with providing healthy eating options, we can work to make ‘the healthy choice the easy choice’ for our guests.

“Sodexo has been a partner for many years, and our collaboration is a perfect example of our common vision for a more sustainable future. Together, our chefs created recipes using ingredients from the Future 50 Foods Report, launched in 2019 by Knorr and WWF-UK. This was a unique opportunity to bring more sustainable and nutritious food choices to consumers across the world, while driving positive change and making a real impact.  Sodexo has made these recipes available in 13 countries and 6,500 locations. Our teams are now working to make this even bigger in 2021.” Harry Brouwer, CEO Unilever Food Solutions.
