More about us

Why Mindful?

Sodexo is committed to creating healthy environments for our customers. Central to this effort is providing healthy, nutritious foods. We’ve listened to our customers. We’ve researched marketplace trends. Our executive chefs and registered dietitians worked together to create an exciting collection of recipes. The result is Mindful by Sodexo – an approach that focuses on transparency of ingredients, delicious food, satisfying portions and clarity in message so that making Mindful choices becomes second nature. While designed for use in our cafes, Mindful is an approach that you can easily adopt at home with your family.
