From the 1 October 2016 the price of core meals provided to service personnel has increased. The MOD has implemented this price increase across all sites and for all its service providers to improve the quality of core meals provided. This increase provides Sodexo and other service providers with more money to spend on the ingredients used to produce the core meal options. Sodexo does not make any profit from the provision of core meals and it will not make any profit from this price increase.
Complete review and refresh of menus
Sodexo regularly reviews its menus and has taken this opportunity to completely review and refresh its core meal range and other meal options.
A survey was carried out with our customers to understand their opinion of the existing menus and service. The results of the survey and the additional money available to spend on the core meal range has enabled us to provide greater choice and improved quality in the food we offer.
New menus, more choice, better ingredients
Our new menus now includes up to 14 different choices all made with better ingredients. The new menus include healthier breakfast alternatives; British Farm Assured sausages; only homemade soups; bigger portions of meat, poultry and fish; improved salad bar range; hot carvery (roast) served Sunday to Thursday as well as the introduction of a range of high street style dishes.
