The British arm of the food solutions company OSI Group received a major shot in the arm on receiving the prestigious Globe of Honor Award for 2016 from the British Safety Council. This was in recognition of their excellent management of environment risks. The importance of this recognition can be gauged by the fact that OSI was part of a select group of organizations from around the world who were known to have displayed an extraordinary commitment to environmental issues.
As a matter of fact competing for this category of award was an accomplishment in itself, because an organization had first to obtain the maximum five stars mandated by the British Safety Council’s environmental management audit scheme in the relevant period. That apart the participating organization also had to demonstrate their competence in implementing environmental management through the divisions of their business.
The well-deserved award was received by Kelly Grimwood, Environmental Manager Europe by Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council. OSI’s UK production happens out of Scunthorpe and specializes in producing beef and pork products for restaurants in the region.
The high success is pretty much in line with what OSI Group achieves around the world. In its home nation the USA it counts among the top 100 food companies of the country with a combined annual revenue of $6.1 billion. This Aurora, Illinois-headquartered company employs as many as 20000 employees.
This company has to operate under its auspices, a large number of meat processors that cater to the needs of the retail and food service industry. The products supplied by OSI Group include meat patties, bacon, hot dogs, pizza, fish, poultry and vegetable products.
For a family business started by a German immigrant in 1909 to reach the 58th rank on the 2016 Forbes list of America’s private companies is quite a saga of growth. Not only do they sell their products to some of the leading names in the food industry like Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, Starbucks, KFC, and Subway, but have a pan-global presence through their thousands of branches across the world.
