French business services company Sodexo (EXHO.PA) has been chosen to operate a further 121 fixed and mobile COVID-19 testing centres in the UK in a deal that it said could be worth 404 million pounds ($557 million).

Sodexo said the contract, struck with the UK’s Department of Health & Social Care, would make it the country’s largest provider of such testing centres.

“Sodexo’s teams have moved quickly to set up COVID-19 testing centres as part of the industry-wide effort to tackle the pandemic,” said Stuart Winters, head of Sodexo UK & Ireland’s healthcare business.
