Sodexo has signed a global partnership agreement with online food delivery marketplace Just Eat Takeaway.com.
The partnership has already commenced in Belgium, enabling Belgian consumers to use their Sodexo meal Card as a payment method for ordering their meals at a wide variety of Belgian restaurants throughout the country seven days per week via the Takeaway.com website and app.
The partnership between Sodexo and Just Eat Takeaway.com will help to facilitate consumers daily life and provide them with a simple, fast and secure payment experience.
In Belgium, this new service represents a major opportunity for the over 1.300 restaurants that will be available from launch, and more will be added over time.
More countries including France will follow in the course of the year.
Aurélien Sonet, Global CEO of Sodexo Benefits and Rewards Services commented: “This partnership continues to illustrate the acceleration of the digitalisation of Sodexo. Teleworking has had a huge impact on our eating habits and has transformed the way we have lunch. In this evolution, we want to offer our consumers easy and flexible options for their meals, while supporting local restaurants. It is a great step forward to addressing the new challenges of the workplace and employee experience at work and beyond.”
Imad Qutob, Sr. Director Corporate Solutions at Just Eat Takeaway.com said: “We are continuously developing new product features and innovations which are all about empowering your every food moment, including lunch. The collaboration with Sodexo connects more consumers worldwide with the wide choice of offering on our platforms. No matter if you work from the office, home or remotely, there is always a restaurant of choice nearby.”
Just Eat Takeaway.com has operations in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Switzerland, as well as through partnerships in Colombia and Brazil.
Sodexo recently signed an agreement with meal delivery business Uber Eats for its consumers in France.
