OSI Food Solutions started like a butchery in the neighborhood serving Illinois. Initially, the company operated as Otto and Sons from 1990. Today, the firm operates facilities in more than 17 countries across the world. The development of the firm resulted from the fast-increasing demand for value-added proteins like chicken and sausages. The firm involved visionary leaders like Sheldon Lavin in its development to help in establishing a successful consumer networking. In March 2018, the company increased its production of quality chicken products by a double to 24,000 tons annually. The improvement resulted in an increased output of quality chicken, beef, and pork products to 45,000 tons per year.
The company anticipates a continuous increase in demand for the value-added food products. Thus, OSI Food Solutions is preparing for the future to remain the leading food processing company globally. At first, Sheldon Lavin worked as the company’s financial adviser. Today, Lavin is the chief executive officer of OSI Group. Also, Lavin worked as the development manager of OSI. The industry runs under the leadership of David McDonald as president. The improvement led to the social economic development by providing additional 20 job opportunities adding to the initial 140 workforce. In the new 20 employees, we have the product development manager. The office should work on developing the current products while introducing new ones to the company’s portfolio.
OSI Food Solutions beefed up its security surveillance system by introducing indoors and outdoors cameras. Also, the company added its work space by 22,600 square feet. On the added working area, we have new shipping and receiving areas, nitrogen and hot water tanks, waste product container storage, and social space for the workers. OSI Food Solutions acquired Tyson Food Plant in North America to show the willingness to serve the region in 2016. Later on, in 2017, the company managed to buy the Flagship Europe making it the major food processing company in the UK and to rename it as the Creative Food Europe. The recent achievement is the purchase of the controlling stake in Baho Food that has extensions in the Netherlands and Germany. OSI Group is the leading private firm in the top 100 food processing companies in the world.
