Marriott International and SOS Indonesia are redoubling their efforts in food waste management, with their food truck ‘Sadeva’ operating in the Nusa Dua and Jimbaran areas.

Marriott International continues its never-ending efforts to achieve its 2025 sustainability and social impact goals with the launch of its newest food truck, Sadeva. Through Marriott Business Council Indonesia, the leader in the luxury hospitality sector is once again supporting Scholars of Sustenance (SOS) Indonesia with a food truck to distribute surplus food to communities in need while reducing food waste.

The council members, who form Marriott’s hotels and resorts in Indonesia, joined forces with SOS Indonesia to unveil the new food truck at a special event held on April 16, 2024 at the Bali International Convention Centre, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua , Bali. Both parties gathered to witness a major step in the brand’s sustainability efforts, with Sadeva becoming the second food truck sponsored by Marriott International.

“We are excited to expand our partnership with SOS Indonesia and contribute to tackling both food waste and the challenges faced by some communities in Bali. ‘Sadeva’ represents Marriott International’s continued commitment to creating positive change and promoting sustainable communities,” said Martin Ehlers, Managing Director of Renaissance Bali Uluwatu and Chairman of Marriott Business Council Indonesia.

Sadeva follows in the footsteps of Doa Ibu, the first food truck launched in Jakarta on October 15, 2023. Both trucks share the mission to reduce food waste and help communities, with Sadeva expanding its reach to Nusa Dua and Jimbaran. Sadeva is being realized with the proceeds from Marriott International Indonesia’s annual charity event, Road To Give 2023.

Expressing his appreciation for the recently launched food truck in Bali, I Wayan Raksa, General Manager of The Westin Resort & Spa Ubud Bali and Co-Chairman of Marriott Business Council Bali, said: “We are thrilled to see our second food truck, ‘Sadeva ‘, who rolls into Bali to support this impactful initiative. Expanding our reach to the communities of Nusa Dua and Jimbaran signifies our commitment to meeting local needs and making a positive difference in Bali. With ‘Sadeva’ we want to not only provide food, but also promote a sense of community and sustainability on the beautiful island of Bali.”

With its deep commitment to food insecurity and food waste, SOS Indonesia is the perfect partner for the brand. SOS Indonesia has shared a commitment to social good since 2017 and aligns perfectly with Marriott International’s 2025 Sustainability and Social Impact Goals, as well as the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

“SOS Indonesia is honored to partner with Marriott Business Council Indonesia in our shared mission to create food equity and reduce food waste in Bali. Together we can make a meaningful impact on the lives of those in need,” said Bo Holmgreen, founder and CEO of SOS, echoing the sentiments.
