Sodexo expands Full Circle Farm partnership with new collaboration
Sodexo’s The Good Eating Company (GEC) is following in the sustainable farming practices footsteps of Sodexo Live! with a new partnership with Full Circle Farms.

GEC now has its own one acre plot at the unique farm in West Sussex which contributes to a more sustainable and resilient food system. A variety of vegetables and herbs including rainbow chard, golden beetroot, pak choi, kale, swede, rocket, lemon balm, will be grown on GEC’s plot. 

Alex Kristall, managing director at The Good Eating Company, said: “This is a fantastic initiative and builds on our commitment to source fresh, locally grown ingredients and reduce food waste. Working with Farmer Tom and his team we can influence what is grown and adapt our menus to ensure they are sustainable, seasonal and great tasting for our customers.

“An added benefit is the learning we can offer our teams and our clients with visits to the farm to understand more about what regenerative farming practices could look like and how important it is for soil health and biodiversity."

Full Circle Farms offers foodservice providers like GEC and urban restaurants an opportunity to own and grow on their own plot of farmed land. Each plot is allocated a full farming team who work with the chefs to assess the restaurants' requirements and grow and deliver the best produce for them.  

Full Circle Farms also has The Garden Army, a not-for-profit social enterprise for volunteers and those with physical or mental health issues.

Tom Morphew, founder of Full Circle Farms and the Garden Army, added: “Alex and her team have already spent time with us down on the farm learning all about regenerative farming practices and the benefits the numerous advantages it provides, including educating people about where their favourite ingredients come from and how being part of nature benefits people’s health and wellbeing.”
