OSI Group Receives Coveted Award While Continuing to Expand European Presence

For the third time in company history, OSI Food Solutions has been named a recipient of the coveted Globe of Honour awarded by the British Safety Council.

These annual awards are presented to businesses that continually demonstrate an outstanding commitment to environmental safety. Also at this time, the British Safety Council honors businesses that provide a commitment to worker health and safety with the Sword of Honour award.

OSI Food Solutions most recently won the Globe of Honour in November 2016, after they previously won the award in 2013 and 2015, making this the second consecutive year the company has received the honor. As part of the American-based OSI Group, OSI Food Solutions U.K. is a leading supplier of beef and pork products to various restaurants. OSI Group was also awarded the Sword of Honour, making the umbrella group one of just eight businesses to win both awards.

To qualify for either award, companies had to initially receive five stars during audits and reviews conducted by the British Safety Council. After passing the initial qualification, companies were required to present to an independent panel of experts how their commitment to both environmental issues as well as worker health and safety was carried out through all levels of operation.

Headquartered just outside of Chicago, OSI Group began its U.K. operation in 1989 as part of its overall goal of expanding its European presence. The company now has operations in China, in addition to its U.S. and European locations, making it one of the most globally known food producing companies in the world. As part of the plan to expand its business overseas, OSI Group recently acquired Baho Food, a Dutch food company known for its production of deli meats and snacks. As the current COO of OSI Group, David G. McDonald said that this acquisition is all part of the company’s master plan to broaden the global presence of OSI Food Solutions. With processing plants in both Germany and the Netherlands serving customers in 18 countries, Baho adds another dimension of service to the OSI Group portfolio.
