Sodexo wins £12m Oasis academies extension

Sodexo has won a £12m extension to its contract with Oasis Community Learning.

The new £3m-a-year deal, which runs to 2020, will include catering for six further Oasis schools to add to the three it has been working with since 2010.

Sodexo will roll out its secondary school offer, the Social, at the Oasis academies, which are designed to encourage healthy eating with a high street-style choice of healthy, balanced dishes.

It has also partnered with Rocket Garden to offer each Oasis school a gardening pack of plants so that they can grow their own fruit and vegetables.

John Barneby, chief operating officer of Oasis Community Learning, said: "We believe that having access to good, healthy food is really important to help our students learn. We have been impressed by Sodexo's passion for food and are confident that together we can continue to drive up-take of school meals."

Matt Garner, Sodexo Government schools director, added: "We are delighted to have extended our partnership with Oasis Academies. We have established a strong relationship with the team which is built on a shared commitment to the students' health and wellbeing which helps lead to positive academic outcomes."

Since 2014 Sodexo has worked with the majority of the 47 Oasis academies in the country.
