OSI Group was recently awarded the Globe of Honor. The award is handed out by the British Safety Council. It is designed to recognize those organizations that have taken forward step towards environmental safety. Large companies are often held accountable for the environmental footprint that they leave on the communities they work in.
OSI Group showed initiative by conducting itself in the proper manner to ensure that their processes do not endanger their surroundings. Eighteen other organizations worldwide were presented with the Globe of Honor in 2016. The British Safety Council wanted to make sure that these organizations receive the acknowledgement that they deserve for making a noble effort to implement safe working conditions and procedures.
OSI Group began as a meat market. They opened their doors in the early nineteen-hundreds. It is a US-based corporation that started out as a family business. The organization’s success is directly tied to the food giant McDonald’s. The two companies developed a working relationship. Innovations such as the patty making machine and cryogenic freezing put OSI Group at the forefront of its industry. They soon became the primary supplier of meat to the McDonald’s organization as the company continued to expand and grow to an international level.
OSI Group has several plants throughout the country and operates business branches around the world. The company is constantly recruiting top talent for career opportunities. Their operations in Europe have shown the growth of OSI. The organization acquired Baho Foods and Flagship Foods. These acquisitions will assist OSI in expanding its reach across the European region.
From 1909 when OSI Group was founded by Otto Kohlschowsky until present date, they have kept an impeccable record for their fine meats. In 1955, they were selected as McDonald’s first supplier of fresh ground beef. The expansion of this amazing food company spans over a century.
Expansion that started years ago continues to make this company in the Top 100 Food companies. The quality is impeccable for the fine meats they deliver. They have expanded in Spain, Brazil, Hungary, China, Japan, and many more places on the map.
Recently, OSI group added Baho Food to their OSI Europe business. Baho has five subsidiaries with processing plants in Germany and the Netherlands. Baho Foods managing director, John Balvers, will remain part of the business and work with OSI executives.
OSI Group has received many awards over the years for their fine quality products and have won awards such as management of health and safety risks as well as outstanding environmental management.
Currently, OSI Group has career openings that can be found on Monster.com. I would imagine that OSI Group would be an excellent company to work for with such an excellent reputation. OSI Group will most likely remain as one of the top food companies not only in the United States, but the world.
It is how the American Dream is supposed to go. An idea leads to collaboration and through dedication and smart business tactics, a successful enterprise arises. College friends Nathaniel Ru, Jonathan Neman and Nicolas Jammet teamed up to create a business that began with a single shop and has flourished into a profitable retail chain in less than a decade. The business, Sweetgreen, is a farm-to-table dining experience that has capitalized on the nationwide healthy eating trend.
The three self-starters are not afraid to explain how they achieved such success. In recent interviews they thank their entrepreneurial parents that provided direction, their willingness to seek advice from everyone and their own drive and discipline that made their dreams become reality.
Nathaniel Ru, one member of the trio and co-CEO with his partners, sees the company as more than a business. To him it is an opportunity to bring better food to more people. His focus is on remaining true to their original vision during development. For example, their recipes change seasonally as the company sticks to its promise of offering only the freshest ingredients. He also believes that the best way to stay relevant is to understand what it is like inside the shops and not just the corporate office. This is why several times a year corporate employees take a hands-on approach in local shops.
Ru is a first-generation American born to immigrant parents that taught him to work hard and believe in his abilities. He is dedicated to filling his company with people that share a common belief and are committed to the philosophy of the business. His desire is to create something that will outlast him and benefit countless numbers of people over time. In addition to the franchise the company also holds a music festival annually in Columbia, Maryland to draw attention to healthy, sustainable eating practices. The company offers workshops in several states to teach school children about nutrition and sustainable eating. The money earned from the purchase of their app is donated to this program. An additional fundraising program brings in money to support AALEAD (Asian American Youth Leadership Education and Development), an organization that assists low-income Asian Pacific American children through educational programs and leadership training.
