SINGAPORE—Sodexo Singapore and Humane Society International are pleased to announce a new collaboration to increase plant-based menu options for Sodexo’s education sector accounts across Singapore. HSI’s Plant-Based Solutions program will train Sodexo chefs on plant-based cooking techniques and work with Sodexo to develop new, satisfying and nutritious recipes. Several Sodexo school accounts will transition part of their current menu items to plant-based dishes, with support from HSI, which works with institutions and businesses in the region and globally to enhance their menu offerings.
Sian Petigny, Corporate Responsibility Director for Sodexo Asia Pacific, said, “We’re excited to work with our partners and clients to introduce even more delicious plant-based menu options to our consumers in educational institutions in Singapore. By increasing nutritious, plant-based food options in our menu mix, we not only positively impact our consumers’ quality of life, but also cater to the demand to embed more sustainable practices in their lives.”
Trang Dang, HSI Food Policy manager for Southeast Asia, said, “We’re extremely excited to be working with Sodexo Singapore to support their sustainability initiatives, specifically in achieving plant-based menu goals. Sodexo has launched a great number of programs to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions; and replacing animal products with more plant-based options is a great approach to achieving their sustainability targets. We look forward to supporting Sodexo’s school accounts in Singapore to ensure that their customers always have access to sustainable, delicious and nutritious plant-based food options.”
In the upcoming months, Sodexo and HSI will host a series of plant-based culinary training sessions for Sodexo chefs, to provide hands-on guidance, introduce new cooking techniques, explore the use of different ingredients and offer coursework to support innovative recipe development. Following the sessions, Sodexo and HSI will work with Sodexo’s selected accounts to increase the number of plant-based options in the menu mix.
“Our chefs truly enjoyed the plant-based, protein-packed recipes that HSI developed with Sodexo in 2020. These recipes have also been well-received by our clients and consumers. We look forward to continuing this journey and providing sustainable and nutritious food services.” said Abel Ariza, President, Malaysia & Singapore at Sodexo.
HSI and Sodexo are also working together on similar initiatives in other territories around the world.
