OSI Food Solutions UK has been presented with a prestigious Globe of Honour Award for 2016 from the British Safety Council for the exemplary management of environmental risks. The award was presented at an Awards luncheon held at Drapers’ Hall in the City of London on November 25, 2016. 

OSI was one of 18 organizations worldwide presented with a Globe of Honour in 2016, which is awarded to organizations who have demonstrated excellence in environmental management. In order to compete for the Globe of Honour, an organization first had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s environmental management audit scheme in the period August 2015 – July 2016. They have also demonstrated to an independent panel of experts that they are excellent in their environmental management throughout the business – from the shop floor to the boardroom. 

“On behalf of the trustees and staff of the British Safety Council, I sincerely congratulate OSI Food Solutions UK Ltd on winning a Globe of Honour for 2016,” said Lynda Armstrong OBE, Chair of the British Safety Council. “The Globe of Honour represents the most prestigious award for the management of environmental risks. With great pleasure, I note how many Globe of Honour winners we have this year. Leading organizations are increasingly adopting an integrated approach, placing environmental protection on an equal footing with health and safety, making their operations more sustainable.” 

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, presented the award to OSI's Kelly Grimwood, Environmental Manager Europe, and said, "Leadership is a key factor in achieving excellence. You can legislate for compliance, but you have to inspire people towards excellence. The winners of the Globe of Honour Awards are exemplars of best practice and all have inspirational stories to tell about their journey towards achieving these accolades."

OSI's production location in Scunthorpe has been in operation in the U.K. since 1989 and produces beef and pork products for the restaurant industry. The company also won the Globe of Honour in 2013 and 2015.
