    Goals / Remit

    FoodServiceEurope is the voice of the contract catering sector in Europe, bringing together contract catering organisations in Europe and speaking on behalf of a significant share of the market. Our members are the national associations gathering the contract catering companies in 9 European Member States. FoodServiceEurope is reinforced by Associate Members, which represent Europe’s leading contract catering companies (Sodexo, Elior, Compass and Trivalor). Associate Members meet annually in the Food Service Roundtable to provide direct input to EU policy proposals that affect the sector. FoodServiceEurope's role vis-à-vis the European institutions is to raise awareness of the specificities of the sector and to provide EU decision makers with relevant information about the food services industry. FoodServiceEurope's objectives are to help food services companies to anticipate the impact of further EU legislation affecting the sector.
