Sodexo has extended its catering and cleaning contract with Avon & Somerset Police in Bristol, England, for a further five years.

The latest contract, received through a competitive tender process, is an extension to an original contract signed between the parties in 2011.

As part of the £8m contract, the foodservice firm will serve more than 2,500 police officers, and 500 police community support officers and special constables at 48 Avon & Somerset Police sites across the county.

Sodexo UK & Ireland government and agencies CEO Paul Anstey said: “We are hugely proud to be able to continue to deliver this contract. Being awarded this extension reinforces our position as a trusted partner both for Avon & Somerset Police and other blue light organisations.

“We are looking forward to working in partnership with Avon & Somerset Police to continue to drive innovation and environmentally sustainable solutions to enhance the quality of life for their police force.”

According to Avon & Somerset Police senior procurement manager Helen Glanville, “Sodexo will work with Avon & Somerset Constabulary to meet a wide range of catering and cleaning requirements. We are confident they will meet our requirements for cleaning at a wide range of property types situated over an extensive geographical area wile also providing catering services at two specific sites.
