Issy les Moulineaux, February 22, 2024

Sodexo reinforces its contract of Food and Facilities Management Services with AstraZeneca in the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Norway for a further 5-year period.

Sodexo and AstraZeneca have built a trusting relationship over the years, with significant advances implemented to improve the daily lives of consumers. The collaboration between Sodexo and AstraZeneca began in 2008 in the UK with a first Food and Facilities Management contract. In 2012, the contract was extended to additional sites and scope of services in the UK, as well as in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. From October 1, 2023, Sodexo is subsequently proud to announce the evolution of this partnership under a Vested® agreement* for a further 5-year period.

Through this highly collaborative Vested® agreement, Sodexo will continue to provide services across the global portfolio, including Food services, as well as Workplace services, Cleaning in GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and quality-controlled Lab areas, Technical Services, Grounds Maintenance and Waste Handling.

To support AstraZeneca’s activities and teams, drive efficiencies and spark further innovation, Sodexo is implementing key initiatives aligned to its 2025 ambition to deliver excellent client and consumer experience, including the implementation of:

  • global food brands, suitable for both manufacturing and office environments, such as Kitchen Works and Modern Recipe, delivering delicious food in stylish and welcoming spaces that foster a sense of belonging and cultivate collaboration;
  • proven solutions to reduce Astra Zeneca’s environmental impact:
    • WasteWatch initiative to track, analyze and limit food waste with the objective of reducing food waste by 50% by 2025;
    • “Reusable Food Box” tracked by a personalized QR code to avoid single-use packaging waste;
    • Carbon labelling on menus to drive consumers towards sustainable choices;
  • tech & data solutions to support a consumer-centric approach with the evolution of the existing ‘Everyday’ consumer app, enabling consumers to pre-order meals, as well as benefitting from a digitized grab and go food offer.

The partnership will also benefit from further digitization concerning other critical areas such as Health & Safety, Financial performance, Quality and Compliance through Sodexo’s global Wando app. This app generates data and insights to ensure consistency and transparency that enable informed solutions, acting as the central reporting platform to drive KPIs.

Johan Stellingwerf, Sodexo Chief Operating Officer for Global Strategic Accounts said: We are very pleased to have extended our long-lasting partnership with AstraZeneca. Together, we share a mutual commitment to nurturinghealthy people, healthy planet and healthy society within our workplaces. We will continue to enhance AstraZeneca’s best-in-class workplace by delivering sustainable experiences every day for everyone. Together with our teams, we will continue generating value, supporting both companies’ strong commitments around Sustainability, Safety, Quality & Compliance, Innovation and People.”
