Not accepting Sodexho from the company employees may not be such an easy affair for the office caterer. There is a "clause" in most admin policies that sodexho "must" be accpeted from employees for a vendor.

UPDATE: I use a sodexo card similar to the below picture, but can be used at office premises only. There is no impact for the same. My Caterer continues to accept it. I asked him about the commision getting increased, which may be a loss to him, to which he just chuckled .

I think they would "compensate" the sodexo loss through "food quality"

As mentioned in this link, few of them are accepting the coupons, however the vendors are not offering any discounts now. Earlier we used to get some discount on the MRP.

Alright, it's officially out: the coupons are not being accepted since it is an overhead for the retailers; nothing to do with counterfeit coupons. Saw this in TOI today:

This has been a disputed topic on many fronts. When we decided to make away with the sodexo coupons business in our company it was met by stiff resistance. We decided to have it continued for a year more. But now, with most retailers refusing to accept Sodexo, am sure many companies will eventually pull out of this scheme.
These coupons were initially introduced for buying food from the office canteen only. Eventually it moved to food items from retail outlets, hotels and other eateries. In my opinion, the administration cost borne by the company and pain in the neck for the HR and admin staff processing and managing these coupons is too high. There are enough records to be maintained, loss of coupons, replacement of expired coupons, short counting, delay in getting payment from vendor etc. Many companies feel that it is just not worth it.

Hello Freinds,

Just read in today's Economic Times that most big retailers like Food Bazaar, Spencers, Reliance Fresh & others have stopped accepting Coupons from 1st January 2012. The reason behind this is processing time, fees charged by Sodexho and others & delay in receipt of payments is eating Retailers already thin margins.

There are still some small retailers that accept Food Coupons. I found two of them in my area (Malad west, Mumbai). But the only issue is that they accept Food Coupons at MRP prices of goods, means they don't offer any discounts that they offer on cash payment. But still this is worth because we have already saved 10 / 20 / 30% as income tax.

The updated list of places accepting Food Coupons is available as under:
https://accorservices.wufoo.eu/forms...cket-foodathon

Thanks,

Indeed. I went to Reliance Fresh few days ago and they refused to accept Sodexo coupon. My company provides these coupons on monthly basis and I opted this option just to save a small amount of tax. I can only hope that this is a temp situation and matter will be sorted out soon

A good article which explains this mess,

Glad to know that the Make a Wish campaign has helped.
A few of the small establishments in my area have started accepting Sodexo now.
One of them asked 5% extra so we skipped that store. The next one did not ask anything extra. We got a few food items from him (e.g. biscuits, juice etc.)
Look at the spreadsheet in the post above and see if there are new additions to your locality.

A local supermarket near my home used to accept these coupons. But of late he has started charging 5% extra on the bill amount if you choose to pay with coupons. Is this even legal?
