Global food solutions and food processing giant OSI Food Solutions was awarded the Globe of Honour in 2016 by the British Safety Council. The Globe of Honour is a prestigious award bestowed on companies and organizations that demonstrate a commitment to environmental management and sustainability. OSI Food Solutions had to first obtain the lofty 5-Star rating that the British Safety Council requires in order for an organization or company to become eligible to receive the Globe of Honour. The award is a nice addition to the list of recent accomplishments that OSI Food Solutions has garnered in the European market.
The great run that OSI Food Solutions is currently enjoying in Europe started in 2014 with the announcement of a key partnership with British beef processing company Pickstock. This was just the beginning of a good run as 2016 saw OSI Food Solutions gain the rights to British food suppliers Flagship Europe. The company has subsequently been renamed Creative Foods Europe. That same year the Dutch food outfit Baho Food was added to the OSI roster. OSI Food Solutions President and Chief Operating Officer David McDonald called the addition of Baho a huge boost for the OSI brand. The company adds great value to the company’s portfolio and is a huge selling point in the acquisition of new high profile business accounts. 2016 also saw OSI Food Solutions double its chicken production in its Spanish plant located in Toledo. The plant services the Spanish and Portuguese markets which have seen a huge uptick in demand for processed chicken. The doubling of production was made possible by a huge upgrade to the facility’s production line. The processing facility is now producing in excess of 24,000 tons of processed chicken every year.
2016 was an exciting year in other areas for OSI Food Solutions. The company’s distinguished Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, Sheldon Lavin was awarded the prestigious honor the Global Visionary Award. This award is presented on an annual basis by India’s Vision World Academy. It recognizes the accomplishments of individuals who have demonstrated great perseverance and persistence in building great success. Sheldon’s accomplishment of turning OSI Food Solutions into a global leader is celebrated by the receipt of the wonderful honor.
