Who we are
Since our first day, at Sodexo we have had one point of view about the universe of our business. This point of view inspires what we stand for and what we do. We were born from the conviction that the tangible actions and daily interactions drive real improvements to people’s lives, to communities and the planet. For this reason, our purpose is to create a better everyday for everyone to build a better life for all.

Our Purpose

At Sodexo our purpose is to create a better everyday for everyone to build a better life for all.

For some it’s just a canteen meal, just a few leftovers, just a day job. For us it’s a healthy child, a battle to reduce food waste, the start of a career… What others see as trivial, we see as essential. Because we know that it is precisely by focusing on the concrete, on the tangible, on the everyday, that we make a real difference not only to a person’s day but, in the long run, to the lives of all and the planet.
