Sodexo wins £3m-worth of MoD work

Caterer and facilities management company Sodexo has won two Ministry of Defence (MoD) contracts worth almost £3m in combined annual turnover.

Sodexo will partner with Serco to provide catering, bar management, hospitality, cleaning and grounds maintenance for the 800 personnel based at RAF Lyneham, Wiltshire. The contract involves 140 Sodexo employees and runs for five years.

Sodexo has also signed up to work with Fleet Support Limited, the engineering and support services group, for three years at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

The company will provide soft services including window cleaning, recycling and bird scaring at the site, which is home to the historic Mary Rose, HMS Warrior 1860 and HMS Victory.

Karl Martin, managing director for Sodexo Defence, said: "The sector has undergone a lot of change over the last few years and we are extremely pleased to have been awarded these two prestigious contracts."
