OSI Group offers customized food solutions for the food industry around the world and has been doing so for many years. The company is an equal opportunity employer that considers all applicants regardless of their sexual orientation, race, color, religion, gender, disability, or other characteristics. Employees who work with OSI consider it a great place to work where they are free to act as entrepreneurs in a fast-moving environment. The fact that the leadership of the company refers to its employees as family says a lot.
OSI Group has been expanding its customer base and reach for years, but the company has been ramping up these efforts a lot more of late. In a move to secure its coverage and excellent service in the Chicago area, OSI bought a food plant that was formerly used by Tyson Foods. The purchase came in at $7.4 million, and while Tyson announced that 480 employees would lose their jobs because of the sell, OSI came to the rescue and offered many of Tyson’s former employees new jobs. The 200,000 square-foot food plant is located nearby another OSI facility in Chicago, and OSI is looking forward to the fact that the new food plant will expand upon what the company has to offer to locals as well as nationwide customers.
In order to offer its European customers a wider variety of food options, OSI Group also recently aqcuired Flagship Europe, which is UK food supplier with a history of providing its customers with excellent value. Flagship Europe offers pies, sauces, dressings, frozen poultry, marinades, and more to its European customer base. The leadership at OSI has commented on the fact that what Flagship offers will neatly complement what the company already has to offer as it is. The leadership of Flagship Europe is also very happy to be partnered with OSI; especially because of the resources and markets that will now open up due to being a part of a much larger company.
While OSI Group continues to expand its operation, it also continues to keep a close eye on maintaining the quality of what it offers. The company also continues to maintain solid environmental and sustainability practices. Just recently, OSI was awarded a Globe of Honour, which is only given to companies that demonstrate top-of-the-line practices for mitigating risks to the environment. The British Safety Council presented the award, which was granted only after an independent group of experts determined that OSI was worthy of it.
