Sodexo awarded £16.5m pharmaceutical contract extension

Sodexo has extended its catering and FM services contract with TriRx Pharmaceuticals Services in Speke, Liverpool for a further five years.

Sodexo has been the catering and FM partner at the Speke site since 2012, the facility was acquired by TriRx Pharmaceuticals in February 2022.

The new contract, worth £3.3 million a year, commenced on 1 January 2023, and sees Sodexo’s 50 plus colleagues delivering an ecosystem of services to optimise the workspace for TriRx’s 350 plus colleagues and contractors based at the facility which manufactures animal and human health products. Services include catering, security, cleaning, laundry, workwear, stationery, mail, grounds maintenance, waste as well as general GMP cleaning of production and laboratory facilities.

To elevate TriRx’s employee experience and wellbeing, a newly remodelled restaurant is being introduced, including space to facilitate meeting and social connections. In addition, Sodexo’s Everyday digital app has recently been introduced, enabling TriRx colleagues to order in advance at the touch of a button for grab ‘n’ go options or to eat-in at the facilities staff restaurant.

Julie Ennis, CEO Corporate Services, Sodexo UK & Ireland said: “The Sodexo team at TriRx has gone over and above to understand what is important to the new owners of the Speke facility. We are delighted to have been awarded this new contract and to modernising the food offer. We know how important workplace food is to attracting talent to organisations and having a high quality, flexible food offer will enable TriRx colleagues to feel valued and collaborate more which ultimately helps sustain productivity.”

2023 FMJ and Grundon Recycling and Waste Management Survey

FMJ in conjunction with Grundon Waste Management is pleased to launch the 2023 waste management and recycling survey which examines the ways in which FMs approach their waste management responsibilities.

In this, the sixth year for the annual appraisal, we know there is a greater opportunity than ever for FMs to reappraise their waste and recycling operations and help their organisations meet the growing pressure to achieve ESG goals.

We want to learn how FMs have adapted to the legislative, economic and societal changes of the past year and how they plan to meet the latest waste and recycling targets.

In this survey we’ve posed a series of questions which include insights into FMs’ waste management strategy and targets, how they’re moving towards zero waste targets, and the importance of not just meeting compliance targets but also ESG goals.

The results of the 2023 survey will be published in FMJ magazine and form the basis of a white paper co-written by FMJ and the experts at Grundon on how to approach waste and recycling strategies.
