Nutrition, Health and Wellness

As a global player in foodservices, Sodexo has considerable influence on the eating habits of more than 75 million people around the world. To promote health and wellness, we offer solutions by proposing a wholesome, well-balanced diet with reduced intake of fats, sugar and salt.

Our health and wellness programming focuses on educating our customers on the benefits of making healthy lifestyle choices and provides inspiration for behavior change. Solutions such as our Mindful offer that promotes the selection of healthy, flavorful and satisfying meal choices; our partnership with MyFitnessPal to help customers and clients track physical activity and nutrition; and our cooking and shopping skills classes enable individuals to make informed choices that lead to healthier lifestyles both at work and home. Our large fleet of registered dietitians deploys programming to improve nutrition and wellness in every market segment we serve. 

We also create healthy living and working environments, which are important to our physical and emotional well-being. Sodexo currently manages foodservice or facilities services in 267 certified green buildings throughout North America. We help hospitals achieve the highest standards of sanitization so they can provide their patients with the best care available. For example, we have significantly reduced hospital acquired infections, at a significant lower cost, to treat each room by implementing  Xenex, a mercury-free, no touch room disinfection system.
