Sodexo is taking actions to proactively manage the impacts of COVID-19 with a focus on the safety and health of our employees, clients, consumers and the well-being of the communities we serve.

Personal message from Denis Machuel on the COVID‑19 pandemic

The spread of COVID-19 has reached global pandemic levels. The impact on people, businesses and society as a whole is unprecedented.

As the situation continues to evolve at an unparalleled pace, we invite you to listen to Denis Machuel, Chief Executive Officer of Sodexo, who personally reaches out to our clients and consumers in these difficult times to share the actions that Sodexo is taking to manage the impacts and preserve the health and safety of our employees, clients, consumers and the well-being of the communities we serve. 

In light of the recent escalation in the COVID-19 situation in a number of countries, Sodexo is coordinating globally to manage its business continuity and pandemic plans to support and protect its employees and consumers across all of its geographies.

The health and safety of Sodexo employees and consumers is our utmost priority.

Sodexo has reinforced the existing rules for food safety, personal hygiene and infection control which will reduce the risk of this, or any other virus, spreading. Sodexo is also restricting all non-essential  business travel until further notice. This action is being taken as a precaution.

Local teams have been proactively managing the response with our clients since the outbreak was first announced, ensuring business continuity and the safety of the teams and consumers in the various geographies where we operate.  

As the situation is an evolving one, Sodexo teams are adhering to guidelines of health advisories and local authorities and will continue to closely monitor the situation.
