Sodexo gathers talented Chefs from across the world to compete for sustainable culinary innovation
Issy-les-Moulineaux, France, November 15th, 2023
In line with its ambition to become the leader in sustainable food and valued experiences, Sodexo has organized the second edition of its Sustainable Chef Challenge, a yearly global competition of Chefs to develop and promote tasty creations that have low CO2 emissions.
The Sustainable Chef Challenge is only one of the many ways Sodexo celebrates the power of sustainable and healthy eating. That is why Sodexo keeps using new ingredients and designing plant-forward recipes to ensure that 70% of its main dishes can be labelled “low-carbon” by 2030.
For the second year in a row, Sodexo gathered 7 talented Chefs from all over the world to take part in the Sustainable Chef Challenge, a culinary competition organized on November 15 in Landsberg am Lech, Germany, in partnership with Rational AG, Eaternity and the WWF.
The Chefs were evaluated on their ability to deliver two sustainable dishes based on core four criteria:
- Promoting plant-based and sustainable meals
- Supporting flavor, nutrition, health, well-being
- Sourcing responsibly
- Preventing food waste
During the event, the Chefs largely showcased their skills and passion to create healthy and delicious meals. Facing a panel of experts including the German three-Michelin stars Chef Thomas Bühner, two Chefs illustrated themselves:
- Chef Sharon McConnell (Northern Ireland) with her “Pistachio Crusted Celeriac Steak” and “Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Dates and Nuts”.
- Chef Ricardo Machado (Brazil) with his “Sautéed banana peel medallion with sweet potatoes” and “Banana and Coconut Mash”.
They were awarded a Culinary Experience Grand Prize for their demonstration of tasty and sustainable cooking.
“Today sustainability is a major focus of the changes both our clients and our consumers are looking for. For Sodexo it’s about continually pioneering to build better experiences for our guests, to support our employees and to enhance our virtuous contribution to the environment.” Alexandra Serizay, Sodexo’s Group Chief Strategy and Services Innovation Officer.
“The Sustainable Chef Challenge is a true illustration of Sodexo’s ambition to drive change towards tasty sustainable food. We aspire to offer our consumers meals that are both desirable and low-carbon. With our expanded plant-forward offering, Sodexo also contributes directly to our clients' sustainability goals.” Anna Notarianni, Sodexo’s Group Chief Impact Officer.
“We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with such talented people, united by a common purpose: paving the way for environmentally friendly and flavorful food.” Sharon McConnell & Ricardo Machado, winners of the 2023 edition of the Sustainable Chef Challenge.

75% Load Factor, 42% increase in passenger numbers and demand picking up PLAY airlines carried 107,236 passengers in November, which is a 42% increase from November 2022 when PLAY carried 75,396 passengers. The load factor in November 2023 was 74.5%, down from 79% last year. This decline in load factor is a direct result of the seismic activity in the Reykjanes Peninsula and resulting global news coverage of a possible volcanic eruption that could disrupt aviation. This situation impacted last-minute bookings in the month. PLAY had an on-time performance of 88.9% in November 2023. Despite the decline in load factor in November we continued to see year-on-year growth in our unit revenue (RASK), even with a 54% growth in available seat kilometers (ASK).Average ancillary revenue continues to rise for PLAY, being 30% higher in November 2023 compared to November 2022, and the trend is looking strong for the coming months. Of all passengers flying with PLAY in November 2023, 26.2% were depar
