OSI food industries, a well-known food company with branches across the world and also a market leader was the proud recipient of the revered globe of honor award in 2016. The food company bagged the award thanks to its excellent care of environment even though it operates in a sector where environmental degradation is common.
The reason why the award is often a big deal not only to OSI food industries but also to the other recipients is that only eighteen organizations in the world manage to receive it and as such it’s quite an honor to get such recognition. However, it does not come on a silver platter. Qualifiers often have to attain a maximum of five stars in order to get approval from the independent panel of judges who happen to be environmental experts in the British Safety Council.
How OSI food industry became an epitome of success
Even though the food group company is a market leader today, it has had to work its way up because it had quite humble beginnings. It began as a small family meat market in 1909 known as OSI group LLC. Thanks to an exemplary management team led by Sheldon Lavin it now ranks 58 in America’s largest private companies and has successfully opened over 60 branches spread in 16 countries and has a workforce of over 20,000 employees.
Today the company has expanded from being a family meat business to a global food processing company. It now deals with a diverse array of food products to suit every occasion from breakfast, entrees to lunches. Some of the products offered by OSI Food industries include smoked, processed chicken and dough-based products and a long string of many others.
It has manufacturing facilities worldwide and it seems the sky is not the limit for the food company as it continues to expand its horizons with each day. For instance, it recently expanded into Europe after its acquisition of a Dutch company as Baho food.
Baho Food has five subsidiary companies spread all over Europe and has plants in Germany and Netherlands. It has a rich history which spreads back to over 6 decades. It deals with deli meat, snacks among many others which are compatible with products from OSI food industries. Through this acquisition, OSI will now increase its presence in Europe and conveniently serve its market in the region. However, this marks only one in many of OSI’s acquisitions. For instance, it recently announced its purchase of Tyson foods in Chicago and we look forward to seeing many more in future.
