Sodexo has become the first caterer in Scotland to achieve the healthyliving plus award across all food services at multiple contract sites.

The Sodexo team at Scottish Government achieved 18 healthyliving plus awards across nine sites serving more than 7,000 customers daily, with awarded services encompassing restaurants, coffee shops, in-room hospitality and vending.

The achievement was recognised at the annual healthyliving awards hosted by NHS Health Scotland on 21 March at the Merchants House of Glasgow.

The plus award requires a greater level of dedication and effort in order to meet the higher-level criteria. This includes ensuring that 70% of all food meets the award guidelines.

Sodexo at the Scottish Government has been working with the healthyliving award since launch in 2006 and has over 70 sites across Scotland accredited.

Joe Aitken, Sodexo Government Services account manager, said: “We are extremely proud to be the first group contract in Scotland to achieve the healthyliving plus award across every service we deliver within the Scottish Government.

“The healthyliving award is vital to the work we do, and in line with our corporate responsibility strategy Better Tomorrow 2025 we understand the importance and benefits of healthier eating with regards to overall health of our customers and staff.

“When it came to in-room hospitality, we worked to create an exciting and appetising menu with a focus on Scottish produce that met the award criteria. The coffee shops were the most challenging model of the business to change, but we worked hard with healthyliving to communicate the benefits of healthier options to customers.”
