The Next Frontier 2019-2022 strategic plan leverages the unique nature of the Group’s platform model, presented in the introduction, to transform Edenred into the everyday companion for people at work. It enables the Group to provide these stakeholders with the full range of services and payment solutions they need to make their working lives easier, all accessible from a single virtual wallet.
