The session will look at major developments in sustainability and responsibility in the food services industry and how Sodexo, as large food services company is responding to it.

Client and customers are increasingly interested in how Sodexo's services can support their own sustainability efforts, through healthy and sustainable food options, a growth model that promotes inclusive partnerships with local businesses and how we are tackling waste. All these actions are crucial as they reduce carbon emissions and support clients’ transition to a low carbon economy and avoid the worst impacts of climate change, pollution, and biodiversity.

During this meeting, Roshith Rajan, Director Corporate Responsibility, Asia Pacific at Sodexo will-deep dive into aspects relating to “Responsible Food” such as  - healthy and sustainable menu offers, responsible supply chain, animal welfare issues, key commodities such as palm oil, seafood, eggs, animal protein, etc.;  food waste; use of plastics, local community impact on small holders, responsible marketing, and the fight against hunger/malnutrition.
