Expanding Presence in Northern Ireland and Scotland

Sodexo’s growth is not limited to England and Wales. The company has also received contract extensions from clients in Northern Ireland and Scotland, demonstrating its widespread influence across the UK.

Sodexo’s Commitment to Excellence and Productivity

Paul Anstey, Sodexo UK and Ireland government CEO, emphasizes the company’s dedication to delivering high-quality services. He notes that Sodexo’s teams are committed to creating efficient, productive work environments in partnership with their clients, an approach that has proven successful in securing these extensions.
