Sodexo has long been committed to reducing food waste goals, working to both global and regional commitments that benefit the environment. Food waste reduction remains an important topic and a key commitment as part of our Better Tomorrow 2025 corporate responsibility roadmap, contributing to the planet pathway of our recently launched Social Impact Pledge.
In 2020, Sodexo UK & Ireland joined forces with WRAP becoming one of its strategic partners. WRAP is a charity which was established in 2010 to promote and encourage sustainable resource use, including the reduction of food waste.
For the lead up to WRAP’s first ever #FoodWasteActionWeek, part of the Love Food Hate Waste campaign, we have been sharing the best practice of Sodexo’s 2020 WasteLESS Week winners.
The winners’ stories cover a range of different topics and celebrate the proactive actions your colleagues are taking to reduce the food waste created by our operations.
Overall winner - the Sodexo catering team from Diageo Shieldhall who optimised their site’s production to reduce food waste before it even reaches customers
Runner up - the Sodexo contract team for Microsoft EMEA who used food waste to make a positive impact in communities
Third place - the Sodexo HSE team from Sodexo’s Integrator Team who came together virtually to combat waste at home
Taking our WasteLESS Week winners lead, this week Sodexo is participating and hosting a range of #FoodWasteActionWeek activities that demonstrate how everyone can make practical changes to reduce food waste both in the workplace and at home.
