Manchester Company Thomas Kneale and Co Ltd Wins Prestigious 2023 SME Supplier of the Year Award from Sodexo

Thomas Kneale and Co. Ltd SODEXO’S 2023 SME OF THE YEAR

The Sodexo “Stop Hunger” Foundation is an employee-led initiative conceived and promoted by Sodexo to tackle food poverty and insecurity in regional communities across the UK, Ireland and beyond. 100% of the donations made to “Stop Hunger” go directly to financing activities and sustainable solutions for disadvantaged communities to exit food insecurity . For example, it gives families on lower incomes the opportunity to give their children the nutrition they need to grow into healthy adults; and gives disadvantaged young people a better understanding of how they can live a healthier lifestyle.

On Wednesday 1st March, Sodexo held their much-awaited Gala dinner at Headingley Stadium in Leeds to raise money for those in hunger poverty and it was very successful indeed. This was proceeded by their “Partners with Purpose” conference to which a small group of strategic supplier partners were invited. The Sodexo line up was very impressive including Sean Haley (CEO, UK & Ireland), Paul Anstey ( CEO, Sodexo government) , Phil Smith (CEO, Schools and Universities), Francois Blanckaert (CPO) ,Patrick Forbes (Head of Supply management) and several other Heads of Procurement and Supplier Management.
