Sodexo has extended its contracts with the Ministry of Defense (MoD) 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 €144 million (£128 million), 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 £16.3 million.
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 Defense 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.
