Sodexho wins major MoD contract

Sodexho has won its second major Ministry of Defence (MoD) contract in as many months in a deal worth £84m in total turnover.

The company has signed a seven-year deal to provide catering, facilities management and domestic services to military personnel in Wales and the West Midlands.

Armed forces under the control of 143 (West Midlands) brigade, headquartered in Shrewsbury, and those training at facilities operated by 160 (Wales) Brigade, such as the Infantry Battle School at Brecon, are included.

Sodexho will look after 16 catering, retail and leisure sites along with 72 other locations. It will run them with a staff of 750 and update 50 catering, retail and bar units as part of the deal.

The caterer estimates it will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to 5,500 service personnel a day and through its high-street like HUB! offer will introduce the MoD's "Pay As You Dine" service.

Gareth Roulston, contract director at Sodexho Defence, said: "The contract covers the Army's widest geographical spread and is the most complex and the most expensive multi-activity contract to date."

In December, Sodexho signed a £50m plus deal with the London military at locations including the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace.
