Sodexo takes The Yume Pledge to prevent 50 tonnes of food waste
Sodexo, a world leader in Quality of Life services, has pledged to buy 50 tonnes of surplus food through the Yume marketplace over the next six months, thereby preventing it from going to waste. By taking the pledge, Sodexo is the first corporate buyer to announce a tangible pledge of future food purchases.
Sodexo, an earlier adopter and partner of Yume’s vision in 2018, has already purchased 50 tonnes of food in the last quarter, showing that the company is capable of buying at least 100 tonnes of surplus food within a year. With these purchases, Sodexo will save 3,450,000 litres of water and prevent 100,000 kilograms of CO2 emissions from going to waste.
"We are proud to be the forerunners in making a pledge to reduce food waste through our partnership with Yume. By making this pledge, we hope to inspire other Australian companies to join the fight against food waste."
- Mark Chalmers, CFO and Country President of Sodexo Australia
