With this latest issue of abducting and killing foreign nationals in the Afghanistan capital, the security issue of the expatriates have once again become a matter of concern. As Sodexo is world’s second largest food and catering services company, it has many foreign nationals working under it and this alarming situation has brought a threat to their lives as well. Kidnapping by militants or criminals is on a rise in Afghanistan in the recent years. However, not only the foreigners but the locals are also being targeted by the militants. The Afghan government is trying to bring situations under control and in the meantime, the ministry will be issuing a statement soon.
Sodexo also maintains canteens and facilities for offices, schools, hospitals, prisons and the military with its clients ranging from the Royal Ascot Racecourse to US Marine Corps.
