OSI Food Solutions Scoops the Globe of Honour Award in 2016

OSI Food Solution UK had the honour to lift the British Safety Council Award known as Globe of Honour Award. This is due to their excellent organisation of the environmental risks in the year 2016. The globe of Honour Award had presented eighteen organisations that had succeeded in ecological conservation. For a company to qualify to be among the list of contestants of the award, they must meet a maximum of five starts in an audit scheme carried out by the environmental British Safety Council for the year ended. The entire OSI Food Solution had succeeded in every aspect.

The Environmental Manager of OSI Food Solutions, Kelly Grimwood, received the Award from the Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, Mike Robinson. Mike pointed out that leadership is a significant determinant of excellence in an organisation and the OSI group had laid a good example. In the year 2013 and 2015, OSI Food Solutions had received the same award. Since 1989, OSI has been producing pork and beef products for the restaurant industry in Scunthorpe.

Through the $ 17 million investment, OSI Food Solutions Spain has doubled its capacity to produce processed chicken products. In total, they produce more than 45,000 tonnes of quality pork, beef, and chicken products. The expansion of the project will require additional workforce in the industry. This is in a bid to improve the production of the existing products, to meet the high demand of the chicken products, and create jobs for more people.

A new production hall, facility supplies storage, shipping and receiving areas, refrigerated rooms, hot water and nitrogen tanks among other buildings were added to improve the look and efficiency of the industry. An excellent kitchen was also elected to serve the changing needs of consumers better. Food defence system was looked into as new surveillance equipment was installed and the firefighting system installed.

Back in 1990, the Toledo, Spain OSI Food Solutions outlet was established, and it has grown significantly to date. Through its continued struggle in agricultural development, employment, and sustainability, it has been awarded by different organisations including the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund, and Local Chamber of Commerce.
