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:
- sharpening the skills of our chefs, dieticians and kitchen staff through specialized training;
- developing and testing new recipes that reflect the latest flavor trends;
- embedding more sustainable ingredients and dishes into our menus,
- all the while driving innovation both in the way we cook and how we deliver our services.

Reopen and rise with Sodexo
Leaders are at a crossroads across the world, looking at a landscape that is changing drastically. Some are trying to reclaim familiar routines, and others are seizing the unprecedented opportunity to reimagine what’s possible, and embrace new ways to live, work, care and play. The value of our expertise is more critical than ever as our guests need to feel confident that the food they are eating, and their dining experience is safe. We work hard to make each client a lifelong client, and that starts by deeply supporting you where you need it most. Learn more about our systematic and comprehensive approach.
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.
We hire the best chefs and invest in their training and resources
Offering world-class food starts by attracting top culinary talent and nurturing their development with a culture that is truly passionate about good food. We encourage our chefs to enter competitions and help them connect and share best practices in our social network chef communities, Global Chef Exchange Program, and Chef Academy.
We look outside ourselves for approval, winning top awards in the process
Our awards match our values. Year after year we take the top rankings and most prestigious awards that reflect our love of food, the investment in our people, as well as our commitments to sustainability and diversity. Whether it’s Michelin Stars for our restaurants, or repeatedly ranking high on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, these external reviews ensure each client receives the best.
Sustainability in our kitchens
A sustainable approach to menu development
To respond to the booming plant-based food trend, Sodexo has partnered with Knorr and WWF to launch a variety of new recipes made with Future 50 Foods. Our chefs around the world are exploring ingredients such as amaranth seeds, the ube (purple sweet potato) and maitake mushrooms, creating delicious meals that blend both flavor and sustainability. This is an opportunity to protect the planet and promote good health, while at the same time fostering creativity and culinary experimentation.
We manage food quantities responsibly
We are the world’s first company to tie financing terms to quantifiable food waste reduction. Our Wastewatch program deploys smart sensors in kitchens to help us understand where and when waste is happening, advancing our goal to reduce waste by 50% by 2025. Rigorous training, tracking and constant technologic innovation are allowing our chefs to make significant reductions in waste. Our approach goes even further to include more efficient kitchen equipment, and creative recipes that use the whole ingredient.

Innovation at the heart of the meal experience
Digitally enabled food services

Connected or ‘smart’ vending machines put customizable food options at employees’ fingertips and support demand for a variety of healthy ‘grab and go’ products. One such example is SALLY, an automated salad-making robot stocked with up to 22 fresh ingredients, ensuring fresher, healthier options are available any time of day.

Flexible and customizable solutions
We have innovative solutions all over the world to offer our guests greater choice, flexibility and convenience with food delivery and pre-ordering services. One example in France is FoodChéri, which allows consumers to order fresh chef-prepared meals that are ready to reheat and consume upon delivery. Guests can have their food delivered to their 比特币交易app哪个好home or office, which means that virtual workers have access to the same options as in-office workers. We provide solutions for every size or type of company, including remote workers and enterprises without onsite restaurant facilities.
