The 2016 Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council was awarded to the OSI Food Solutions U.K. for the green technology innovation and sustainable practices that they’ve incorporated into their business processes. The Globe of Honour award was presented to 18 other businesses who exemplified excellence in environmental management. In order to be considered for the award OSI Group had to meet the five point requirements set by the British Safety Council.

From there, OSI and their operations were closely observed by the council through an audit scheme for months in order to ensure that they were holding to the high standards set for the award in every step of their daily business operations.

The award ceremony took place in the U.K. which has been the home of one of OSI’s facilities in Scunthorpe since 1989. This is also an award that OSI Group has won in 2013 and 2015. The stance that OSI has taken to ensure social, economic, and environmental responsibility has expanded beyond their clients into a positive global impact. Given the sustainable processes that OSI Group is implementing across their different facilities, there is so much to hope for in the future of this trusted business.
