Philippe Guillemot, Elior Group’s Chief Executive Officer, said: "I would like pay tribute to the commitment of our teams who are working alongside our customers since the beginning of this crisis, thanks to constant dialogue. Since March, they have been supporting healthcare personnel and helping companies implement their business continuity plans. During April and early May, they carried out rigorous planning to offer tailor-made and scalable solutions, guaranteeing our employees, customers and guests a safe and secure post-confinement. In the context of a very progressive resumption of activity in schools and companies, Elior is particularly attentive to calibrating its organization and catering or services to preserve the economic balance that is essential to the company’s profitability. This unprecedented situation, while capitalizing on its expertise in hygiene and food safety, the Group is also focusing on agility and innovation, notably by accelerating its digital transformation. Impacted by the crisis, Elior remains solid in its fundamentals and stays true to its mission: earning its guests’ trust day after day by guaranteeing them a healthy, well balanced and environmentally friendly meal. As a responsible caterer, Elior intends, more than ever, to ensure the social vocation specific to contract catering companies, which are an effective lever for public action to guarantee everyone access to quality meals, products with the best food security and offered at a reasonable cost."
