Great Places to Work 2018

Sodexo was named as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland.  It’s the first year that Sodexo has been named as a top Irish workplace, based on the findings of a robust employee survey and a thorough assessment of its policies and practices by the Great Place to Work Institute. 

Sodexo Recognised as a Business All-Star

Sodexo was recognised as a Business All-Star Irish Global Multinational Corporation for 2019-20 by the All-Ireland Business Foundation.  It is an independently verified standard mark for Irish businesses that is based on rigorous selection criteria; performance, trust and customer centricity. Irish businesses that successfully navigate the Foundation’s six-step adjudication process can display the Business All-Star symbol which is presently held by 300 Irish firms.

Coffee Growers Fund, in partnership with the Fairtrade Foundation

Together with the Fairtrade Foundation, we are helping to improve the food security and empowerment of women, Fairtrade coffee producers' and their families in Peru.

This growers fund was designed in partnership with the Fairtrade Foundation and CLAC, Fairtrade's network of producers in Central and Latin America, in order to incorporate a range of approaches that address the most relevant issues and support for the cooperative members. This includes technical training to improve coffee quality, installation of solar dryers, small animal farming and creation of kitchen gardens.
