Sodexo has extended its contracts with the Ministry of Defence to provide services in Cyprus and the Falkland Islands – a deal with a combined value of £143.8m.
The three-year extension will see a team of 775 Sodexo staff continue to offer catering, cleaning, waste services and logistics support at six bases across Cyprus, where the firm has managed services since 2007. The extension alone is valued at more than £127m.
Meanwhile, in the Falklands, the foodservice operator will provide administration, catering, tailoring, laundry, dry cleaning, office and domestic cleaning services with an expected turnover of £16.3m
Paul Anstey, chief executive for government and agencies at Sodexo UK and Ireland, said: “We are extremely proud of our support in serving the Armed Forces both at home and overseas in Cyprus and the Falkland Islands.
“Being awarded extensions in these regions reinforces our position as a trusted partner to the Ministry of Defence where we work together in providing a diverse range of services to enhance the quality of life for our service personnel.”
