“In India Sodexo offers meal and gift vouchers. But globally we have a suite of products and we are looking to expand our products offering in India. Going ahead, we will look at a comprehensive employee benefit platform. In the near term we will offer fuel, medical, mobile, Leave Travel Allowance reimbursement, in addition to meal and gift benefits,” said Suvodeep Das, Vice President-Marketing, Sodexo India.
Sodexo has over 3 mn consumers and 11,000 clients, comprising of small as well as medium enterprises, public sector undertakings, and IT sector companies. Sodexo has also launched a meal card two years back and a mobile wallet earlier this year. While the Sodexo voucher is accepted in over 1,500 cities, the card is accepted in 700 cities. But the company eyes to expand their reach in next two months, so that their card will be accepted across all 1,500 cities.
“We have set up a proprietary network – either our dedicated swipe machine or if it is a shared machine it has a separate software patch to accept Sodexo. This is necessary because the meal benefit has a tax benefit and law states that the card can be used only for food and non-alcoholic beverages,” added Suvodeep.
