The company has recently made news as it has been honored with the title of being one of The Top 100 Food and Beverage Companies in the World. OSI is a privately owned company, and many people in the food industry know that Sheldon Lavin, the company’s chairman and CEO, is the man who is mainly responsible for this honor.

OSI joined a small group of other organizations that also received the award and was chosen after receiving five stars by the environmental management audit scheme of the British Safety Council. To even be considered for the award, a company must demonstrate its excellence in maintaining strong environmental management throughout its entire organization, and OSI Food Solutions did just that.
