It speaks tremendous volumes for a food company to have not only taken 2016’s prestigious Globe of Honour Award bestowed upon them by the British Safety Council, but to have received this same award in 2013 and also 2015. The American held OSI Group has completed that feat. The Globe of Honour Award is given to companies who have demonstrated excellence in environmental management, something which OSI Food Solutions UK has shown time and again.
To first even be allowed to compete for this award, a company must achieve the maximum of five stars in a predetermined audit scheme time period given by the British Safety Council. Along with gaining these five stars, the company must also prove their excellence in their environmental management throughout their entire business, bottom to top, to an independent panel of experts. This is most definitely an award of the highest honor.
The OSI Group has not only continued to show their excellence in front of the British Safety Council, they have made a massive leap onto 2016’s Top 100 Food and Beverage Companies in the World list. After not having previously appeared on said list, they make an impressive showing, coming in at number 66. It certainly helps when OSI can boast over 60 locations in 16 different countries.
Not willing to rest on their laurels, the OSI Group made a few significant purchases in 2016. First up was their purchase of a Tyson Foods plant in Chicago, which happens to be located close to other OSI Chicago facilities. The purchase of Tyson allows OSI the infrastructure needed to support their continued business growth. Shortly after this purchase, OSI obtained Baho Food in attempt to create an even broader presence in Europe. Baho Food is known for manufacturing deli meats, convenience food and snacks. The five companies Baho held and now carry the OSI logo serve customers in 18 different countries. Finally and most recently, OSI has acquired Flagship Europe from the Aurora, Colorado-based Flagship Food Group. With this purchase, the OSI Group continues to plant a strong foothold in the European Food market.
