Sodexo proposes the "Aspretto" offer, a socially responsible brand. All products are ethically and locally sourced with full accreditation from the Rainforest Alliance, Fairtrade Foundation and Soil Association. In addition to the quality of the coffees and teas, the Aspretto offer is conceived around four core principles: diversity, health and wellbeing, environmental protection and social responsibility. Implemented at 45 sites in 2009, Aspretto is now offered at 320 clients’ sites around the world and this number is increasing on a daily basis.
Through Aspretto, Sodexo confirms its contribution to local economic development and education and training programs. Indeed, thanks to Aspretto, an agricultural cooperative in Nicaragua has been able to use a portion of its profits to build schools for students and finance purchases of school supplies and meals. In addition, Sodexo donates part of the price of each cup of Aspretto hot beverage – 10,000 tons of coffee and tea per year purchased, more than one billion cups served – to its STOP Hunger program.
