OSI Industries has an impressive presence in the food production around the world, including in Australia where the recent merger between OSI and Turi Foods took place. This merger brings together 2 of the largest industry players in the Asia Pacific region. The new name of these merged companies is Turosi Pty Ltd. and the organization is expected to quickly become a considerable powerhouse in Australia and the surrounding areas. As individual companies, Turosi Foods and OSI Industries had similar cultures with a significant amount of experience in the food production industry and strong reputations among their customers. The Chief Operating Officer and President of OSI Industries expects the merger to aid the company in order to bring new, innovative ways to serve their customer base.
OSI and Turi Foods both served similar markets such as the fast-food industry and different retail outlets, but each had different specializations such as butcher shops and specialty chicken retailers. OSI Industries continues to focus their efforts on providing sustainable food products with a level of quality that meets or exceeds the expectations of their clients. As a whole, they have earned several accolades for their efforts in water conservation and animal welfare throughout the world. Along with minimizing their impact on the environment, the organization strives to improve the wellness of their employees and the communities they are based out of around the world.
One production facility, in particular, OSI Riverside, received a Green Business certification from the state of California. The salsa and vegetable producing facility has taken actions to protect the environment such as recirculating the steam produced by their factories and increasing the efficiency of the plant’s motors, boilers, and lighting. They have even made efforts to reduce the wastewater produced by the factory. The plant even implemented a ride-share program for their employees in order to reduce the pollution created due to transportation. In the United Kingdom, OSI received a Globe of Honor Award from the British Safety Council. This award was only given to 18 organizations in 2016. The facility that processes beef and pork won this award in 2013 and 2015 as well.
