Lawmakers call for review of Sodexo’s dealings in N.J.

Lawmakers call for review of Sodexo’s dealings in N.J.

Food service vendor had to pay New York $20 million for hiding vendor rebates

Two Assembly members Monday asked state Attorney General Paula Dow to look into the financial dealings of multi-national food service provider Sodexo, which provides food services to 73 New Jersey school districts.

Assemblywoman Linda R. Greenstein (D-Middlesex) and Assemblyman Wayne P. DeAngelo (D-Mercer) said Sodexo, which earns $4 billion annually, recently settled a $20 million lawsuit after an investigation showed they violated state and federal law by hiding vendor rebates in connection with services proved to 21 school districts and the State University of New York.

Greenstein and DeAngelo said a recent study released by the Clarion Group found that Sodexo had similarly withheld rebates in the Piscataway and Long Branch school districts.

Under state and federal law, companies such as Sodexo can negotiate rebates with food product, supplies and equipment vendors, but savings from the rebates must be returned to the school districts.
