Sodexo work closely with clients to support operations

Service Family OutsideOur catering, retail and leisure facilities have been developed to combine high street style restaurants, cafés, bars, shops and leisure services, specifically tailored to meet the varied needs of Armed Forces personnel and their families.

We work closely with the Armed Forces to support our soldiers with any logistics and support in the army they may need, such as decompression and deployment services.

As part of our commitment to support the entire Defence community, Sodexo supports a wide range of service charities and military sports.
