Sodexo Teams Up to Combat Food Waste in AustraliaApril 28, 2022
Sodexo has joined the Australian Food Pact, a partnership of organizations voluntarily committed to reducing food waste across Australia’s supply chain.
Launched last year by Stop Food Waste Australia, the Australian Food Pact is committed to cutting the country’s food waste in half by 2030. As part of its commitment, Sodexo will contribute more than US$70,000 per year over the next three years to the initiative. The company will also establish an internal food waste team and participate in regular working groups to measure food waste reduction in line with agreed-upon targets, Food & Drink Business reports.
“The effects of food waste prevention are proven to be circular, reducing the dollars spent on food and the resources used to produce more food. For this reason, we’re deliberate in introducing sustainable food initiatives into our daily practices which lessen the environmental footprint of our operations and, more broadly, our industry,” said Darren Hedley, Sodexo Australia president.
Founded in 1966, Sodexo is a global provider of integrated food and facilities management services with more than 380,000 employees in 80 countries. For more information, visit www.sodexo.com.
