The British safety council honoured OSI with the prestigious Globe of Honour Award for 2016. This award was given to them because of their commitment to keep the environment clean and safe. Despite being a food production industry, an industry that makes use of the disposal bins a lot, OSI has gone to great lengths to ensure that nothing that comes out of its plants is harmful to the environment. As a matter of fact, just being selected among dozens of qualified companies to compete in this category was an honour in itself.
To get the award, OSI had to get five star ratings within a given period of time. They also had to implement good environmental management in all their divisions of business and in all the stages of leadership. Their ability to meet the requirement was not a surprise to many since they have been praised by their employees for their strong leadership culture. their care for the environment goes a long way before their nomination for the award.
One of the things that make OSI so strong despite having facilities all over the world is the fact that they try as much as possible to get their employees from the area they are located. This has helped them contribute significantly to the economy of the area in which they are located. The employees who have the chance to work with them have learning opportunities that are rare in other industries. Considering the fact that it is an ever growing global organization, the employees have unending learning opportunities. This has enabled them to fulfil their employees’ greatest desire, to be in a company that allows them to grow professionally.
Being a leader in supplying the market with value added foods, OSI does not compete with other companies. It thrives in partnerships. This is evident in their acquisition of Baho foods, Tyson food planet and Flagship in Europe. Their vision is to see their valuable products reach every individual in the market. And this is more effective when they partner with local food plants in different countries. As a result, they have been able to make their presence felt in every continent in the world.
Since its foundation over 100 years ago, OSI has managed to stay on course, providing innovative food solutions to the world and holding firmly its place as the world’s premier supplier of value added food products.
