Sodexo has been selected by the US Marine Corps for a contract for up to seven years to provide food services at 20 Marine Corps garrison mess halls in the west coast of the US, valued at $766m in revenues over the life of the contract.

Michel Landel, Sodexo's CEO, said: "I am very pleased that the Marine Corps has reaffirmed its confidence in Sodexo. Sodexo's teams in the US are proud to back the US Marines in their missions."

With this additional contract, Sodexo will serve a total of 51 garrison mess hall locations in Arizona, California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington DC.

More than 40% of Sodexo's contract with the US Marine Corps will be serviced through subcontracts with small, minority, disadvantaged businesses, and organisations that represent the interests of individuals with disabilities.

Sodexo was awarded the contract to operate 31 additional Mess Halls in February.
