2019-2020 Activity Report


Editorial of Philippe Guillemot, Elior Group Chief Executive Officer

Our company has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic not only with a very high degree of control, but also with impressive responsibility and solidarity; two values deeply embedded in our DNA. And for that, I would like to take this opportunity of celebrating the admirable commitment shown by all our employees.

In meeting the challenges that lie ahead, Elior remains steadfast in its mission to earn the trust of our guests and clients on a daily basis by guaranteeing that they receive healthy, tasty, eco-responsible food, and to exercise responsible stewardship of our customers' facilities and settings through our support service businesses in France. In today’s unprecedented circumstances, our challenge is not to change course, but rather to stay on course and accelerate our progress.

Our ambition is to reinvent our business as a social caterer so that we can respond effectively to three major concerns of our guests, which have been further accentuated by the pandemic: is what I eat healthy and tasty, and is it good for me? Secondly, will eating also be a pleasurable opportunity for togetherness, and will it be good for us? And lastly, will the impact of what I eat be good for everyone? Based on these fundamental commitments to delivering food that is healthy, pleasurable and respectful of the natural environment and communities, our action plans are now in place across all our markets in all Elior operating countries.

Our ability to embrace transformational change, drive innovation and roll out new offers that meet the expectations of our guests will enable us to emerge from this crisis as a more competitive Group, at the same time as asserting our leadership in CSR.
