Sodexo, a leading global services company, has extended its contracts with the Ministry of Defence to provide a range of support services to the UK’s Armed Forces in Cyprus and the Falkland Islands for a further three years.

In Cyprus, the contract extension, worth €144m, will see the 775 strong Sodexo team continue to provide catering, cleaning, waste services and logistics support at six bases where troops and their families are deployed.  Sodexo has managed the services here since 2007.

Sodexo has been serving the military community in the Falkland Islands since 2001, providing   administration, catering, tailoring, laundry, dry cleaning, office and domestic cleaning services. The turnover of the extended three-year contract is worth £16.3m. 

Paul Anstey, CEO, Government & Agencies, Sodexo UK & 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.” 

Sodexo has worked with the British military for more than 30 years, focusing on the wellbeing and quality of life of the Armed Forces and their families.

Sodexo was an early signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant and in 2017 received the Ministry of Defence’s Gold Employer Recognition Award for its commitment and support to the UK’s Armed Forces community.
