Statement of support

Since 1966, our clients have chosen Sodexo because we care about the food and beverages we provide, the resources we use, the people we employ, and the communities we serve. Thanks to the scale of our food services activities, we have global reach in coffee – in fact, we serve more than 1.6 billion cups every year. We’re proud to partner with Conservation International and join the Sustainable Coffee Challenge as a retailer. Our own commitment is that 100% of the coffee served within our proprietary brands will be responsibly sourced by 2021 and in the same timeframe, 99% of all coffee we sell in our retail channel globally will be purchased from responsible sources. We hold ourselves accountable to these objectives and we’ll use our scale and contribute in collaboration with our Supplier Partners and NGOs to achieve them.
