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 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, with at least 50% of menu choices achieving the award guidelines in each section of the menu.
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.”
The Sodexo team was recognised at the annual healthyliving awards, which were hosted by NHS Health Scotland on 21st March at the Merchants House of Glasgow.
