The OSI Group is one of the world’s most successful companies in the food and beverage sector. The firm has branches across the globe, but its central unit is based in Aurora, Illinois. When OSI was founded in 1909, it was a small enterprise that only supplied its products in the local community. It has developed over the years to cover several regions of the world, and it has a staff of more than 20,000 professionals who are devoted to producing quality products. The specialization of the food processor is in pizza, chicken, vegetable products, meat patties, bacon, fish and hot dogs.
The company has been praised for having an excellent environmental conservation record. It was recently named as a winner of 2016’s Globe of Honor Award, which is a recognition of the British Safety Council. The reward is devoted to appreciating the efforts of various companies that have been inventing outstanding strategies in tackling environmental pollution. Only 18 business managed to be recognized by the British Safety Council’s awards. Any enterprise that is named as a winner of the Globe of Honor must have attained five stars during an ecological examination that the organization conducted between August 2015 and July 2016.
OSI is a fast rising company and one of the factors that have motivated its growth is excellent management. The firm is headed by Sheldon Lavin, who is its CEO. The administrator has been praised for being competent, and his efforts evolved the company into a multi-billion dollars profit-making multinational corporation. He was honored with the Global Visionary Award. Sheldon has led the firm to set up more than 60 factories in 16 countries.
The company’s other significant accomplishment in 2016 is obtaining the ownership of Baho Food. The company was divested by the Dutch, who had specialized in the manufacture of different portable foods, snacks, and deli meats. The public did not get any information on the cost of the deal since OSI is a private business.

The business of Baho Food is spread in 18 European countries where it supplies it products. However, its factories are based in Germany and Netherlands, and they are Vital Convenience, Bakx Foods, Henri van de Bilt, Q Smart Life, and , Gelderland Frischwaren.
