The SSP Group is committed to the highest standards of corporate governance.
The Board has established an audit committee, a nomination committee and a remuneration committee. The key responsibilities of each committee are set out in its Terms of Reference.
Key governance documents are available here:
Except as stated below, the Board considers that the SSP Group complies with the requirements of the UK Corporate Governance Code (the Code).
The Company does not comply with the Code’s recommendation on chairman independence, as Vagn Sørensen was not independent at appointment. The Directors believe that this non-compliance is justified, as a result of Mr Sørensen’s knowledge of the SSP Group’s business, his experience in the industry and the continuity his service provides.
The Company has adopted a code of securities dealings in relation to its ordinary shares which is at least as rigorous as the Model Code and applies to Directors and Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibility.

Corporate Social Responsibility
As a global food business that serves on average one million customers every day across 29 countries, we have a responsibility to look after our customers, employees, clients and the people who produce our food and beverage. We understand our role in reducing our impact on the environment as a result of the production and transport of our products and people.
We have developed initiatives to affect positive change across our key business areas. These projects have won awards for staff training and customer satisfaction, as well as recognition for sustainable sourcing policies, and we have achieved accreditation for our environmental endeavours.
As SSP continues to evolve and develop, we are keen to further embed sustainability into our business as we realise it will help us become an even more resilient, innovative and successful business.
We will be reporting on our activities and plans in the coming months.
