Sodexo take initiative on food waste

Quality of Life service Sodexo are taking the initiative on food waste, tackling the issue by pledging to salvage 50 tonnes of food from being wasted.

The company have partnered with online food surplus site Yume and hope to meet their target over the next six months.

Sodexo had previously purchased 65 tonnes of surplus food though the site, which it has said saved more than 4,400,000 litres of water and saved 129,000kg in CO2 emissions. And food purchased to date has been largely distributed to mining sites.

In a statement on their commitment to reducing food waste, Sodexo Australia CFO and Country President Mark Chalmers said the company was proud to be at the forefront of the issue.

“Globally, Sodexo serves 100 million consumers every day, so we have tremendous capacity to reduce waste by improving how we deliver our services. By making this pledge, we hope to inspire other Australian companies to join the fight against food waste,” he said.
