The World Health Organization estimates 600 million people – or almost 1 in 10 people in the world – fall ill after eating contaminated food each year. Foodborne illnesses and outbreaks can often be attributed to a breakdown in food safety protocols and unacceptable food handling practices.
As a global food producer operating in 18 countries, we at OSI Group recognize the important responsibility we have to ensure the food safety of tomorrow – for our customers, consumers, families and each other. That is why we have introduced a new food safety culture brand – Food Safety Always.
Watch the below video to learn more about Food Safety Always and how it comes to life at OSI.
As seen in the video, we are bringing Food Safety Always to life through three key practices – Look Out. Speak Up. Act Now.
By following these key practices, we help keep consumers, customers and each other safe while ensuring consistent quality in everything we do.
“Food safety is top priority at OSI. We fulfill a noble and critical role for our customers, communities, families and one another by ensuring food safety in the products we provide. With Food Safety Always, we encourage food safety practices that help prevent incidents and ensure the world’s food supply is better protected,” said Dave McDonald, president and chief operating officer at OSI Group.
Food Safety Always is about more than just following safety rules in the plant or factory. It is about moving team members from simply being aware of the rules around food safety to actively making food safety a conscious part of their daily work.
By living Food Safety Always, we empower all OSI team members to live the practices of Look Out. Speak Up. Act Now., to take ownership of food safety, and to keep the world’s food supply safe.
