OSI Sustainability Newsletter: Highlights From Issue 6 | October 2020


October at OSI is a time for everyone at the company to reflect on the important role he or she plays in ensuring the highest safety and quality of the food we produce. Facilities around the world have marked Food Safety Week with activities and discussions — many held virtually this year — to remind ourselves that any impact, change or culture "starts with me."


But this thinking doesn't only apply to Food Safety. I'm proud that so many of the sustainability goals we care deeply about have been driven by employee interest and initiative. Across the company, we recognize the importance of every individual's personal commitments to sustainability and we encourage their innovative thinking as we work to solve challenging issues within our industry.


This issue celebrates the innovation, dedication and contributions individuals and groups within OSI have made to ensure our operations and supply chains are constantly improving and becoming more sustainable. It also highlights some of the work we have done to support them. This includes providing subject-matter specific training for those with direct responsibility over purchasing decisions. Employees in procurement and quality assurance are the critical actors in sourcing and maintaining sourcing standards and have played a key role in managing and engaging suppliers on expectations. We have also always taken care to educate all new hires against our sustainability objectives and regularly offer opportunities for all employees to participate in subsequent training on targeted sustainability topics.


It’s important to us that OSI's sustainability commitment isn't just a top-down company order. As you'll see in this issue, employees want to know what is happening in our upstream sourcing practices and feel connected to driving sustainability impact in our business. They are driving change and putting the OSI sustainability gears in motion. And we couldn't be prouder.


Sincerely,

Nicole Johnson-Hoffman
