Sodexo has received the "healthyliving award" at an additional 31 of its sites in Scotland after demonstrating its commitment to providing healthier food options to its clients and consumers.
The sites include Strathallan School, the first independent school in Scotland to achieve the "healthyliving plus award", six courts in which Sodexo operates, four Scottish Government sites including the Victoria Quay building and Langside College.
All sites were presented with their certificates at a special awards ceremony which took place at the Beardmore Hotel in Clydebank.
Funded by the Scottish Government and managed by Consumer Focus Scotland, the "healthyliving award" was launched in 2006. The criteria requires businesses to dish up healthier food by improving the way that it is prepared and highlighting the healthy options available.
Graham Box, managing director for Sodexo in Scotland, said: "A commitment to a healthy lifestyle is central to every aspect of our business. Being awarded the "healthyliving award' at so many of our sites in Scotland is a great achievement."
