British Safety Council has awarded OSI Food Solutions UK with the prestigious Honor Award for 2016. The company won the award based on its excellent management of environmental risks. OSI Food Solution was awarded during a luncheon organized by the British Safety Council at London’s Drapers’ Hall. The event took place on November 25, 2016.

The awards featured 18 organizations from around the world. Each of these companies received a Globe of Honor in 2016. Like OSI Group, these organizations had demonstrated excellence in environmental risk management between August 2015 and July 2016.

Globe of Honor is awarded to organizations that have a score of five stars in the environmental management audit scheme maintained by the British Safety Council. Before being honored, each organization having five stars is scrutinized by an independent panel to ensure that they practice environmental management in every sector of their business. It is only after satisfying the board that an organization can receive the Globe of Honor Award.
