Foodservice company Sodexo, in partnership with Worldline and SV365 Technologies, is set to launch the UK’s first round-the-clock automated food court for healthcare workers.

Worldline is a payments services provider while SV365 Technologies offers solutions for the food service industry.

Sodexo and its partners will test and launch the 24/7 Deli at the Royal Stoke University Hospital in Stoke-on-Trent.

Sodexo UK and Ireland Health & Care strategy and marketing director Simon Lilley and Sodexo UK product innovation head Militsa Pribetich-Gill stated: “As a strategic partner to many NHS hospitals, it is important for us to continue to innovate and to provide new and exciting initiatives such as the 24/7 Deli.

“Through our new automated retail solution, we’ll be able to play our part every day, by serving frontline teams, visitors and patients.

“Together with Worldline, we are happy to provide an innovative and smooth end-to-end user experience, from nutrition – our core competence – through user-friendly kiosk distribution all the way to payment.”

Featuring touchscreen ordering and cashless payment systems, 24/7 Deli will provide a seamless and convenient dining experience to staff and visitors alike.

Going forward, the companies plan to expand the concept across relevant Sodexo sites and segments.

Worldline vending and adjacent markets head Nicolas Dejonghe stated: “We are delighted to be working with our partners at both SV365 Technologies and Sodexo.

“Our collective expertise has enabled us to bring a truly refreshing outlook to self-service kiosks within the healthcare sector, providing new services, meeting the latest customers’ expectations while improving the well-being of staff and visitors.

“This 24/7 Deli project shows how much self-service can be reinvented with smart concepts, combining appealing self-service machines, smooth digital payments, varied product offerings and creative merchandising.”

Earlier this year, Independents by Sodexo was awarded an additional five-year catering contract in the UK by Reed’s School in Cobham, Surrey.

Sodexo has been offering catering and hospitality services at the school for more than 50 years.
