Sodexo expands in Brazil market

FRENCH catering group Sodexo has bought Puras do Brasil for about €525m (£462.8m) to take advantage of demand in the fast-growing Brazilian market. Puras do Brasil provides services from food catering to the management of public spaces.

“This is in line with our strategy to consolidate Sodexo’s position in high-potential emerging economies by seizing the best opportunities,” chief executive Michel Landel said.
