MUMBAI: Hospitality company Sodexo , in partnership with Zone Startups, has announced an Enterprise Foodtech Program—an initiative to work with Indian start-ups and closely connect with the local digital and innovation ecosystem to strengthen food offers for its clients and consumers. The program is an effort to extend Sodexo’s Open Innovation Program that is now focusing on Asia Pacific – India and China to explore market-leading innovations.

Sodexo On-Site Services India country president Rishi Gour said, “By associating with innovative start-ups, we aim to transform not only the perception of workplace cafeterias but also the way we operate and serve consumers. With start-ups offering innovative technologies and business models, we look forward to creating new services together and generate a differentiated experience for our consumer. It will allow us to reach consumers in a way we did not do before, create better connections and deliver better customer-centric services and experiences”.

The first cohort of the accelerator program under the partnership with Zone Startups in India is dedicated to identification of new technology and corporate food models, for which start-ups can apply through a dedicated website. Sodexo and Zone Startups will collaborate to identify, assess, test, and validate the most relevant start-ups to coach and run pilots within a Sodexo context.

The one-year program aims to bring new food experiences to Sodexo’s corporate clients and consumers. Overall, the partnership will help Sodexo India to closely work with local digital and innovative players in sourcing and accelerating new technologies and business models for Sodexo business offers.

Sodexo chief digital and innovation officer Belen Moscoso Del Prado said, “We are deploying local initiatives under a global strategy of moving closer to our consumers through such strategic partnerships and are therefore keen to work closely with Zone Startups on attracting partners with leading-edge technologies and emerging business models. We are sure that this partnership will bring new energy to Sodexo’s business in India, and even inspire innovation across other markets.”

Zone Startups India managing director Ajay Ramasubramaniam said, “We are pleased to partner with Sodexo to co-create this first of its kind open-innovation program in the enterprise food experience space. This program opens up collaborative avenues for start-ups working in emerging food services. Sodexo's global domain expertise and large consumer base is a strong ally for selected start-ups to attain scale at speed.”
