While most shoppers and diners don’t actively think about where the food they are eating is coming from, it is very important to know. It is also important to have more information about the companies who deliver food to supermarkets and restaurants. Among a field of food production companies, OSI Industries stands apart as a leader. OSI is centralized in Aurora, Illinois but does business all over the globe. They serve their clients with a range of food options but focus heavily on protein related products.
President David Mcdonald and CEO Sheldon Lavin, together, lead the privately held company into the future as it serves food options to 17 countries. Recently, OSI acquired a Dutch company named Baho Foods in its European expansion. The company also bought Flagship Europe, which will now have new opportunities to serve its clients with pies, condiments, and frozen poultry. On top of this, OSI is looking into new expansion possibilities in Germany and Spain.
While OSI Industries is expanding internationally, its main focus is to continue its excellence in offering a spread of services and food options to its existing customer base. In a recent move, the company acquired a closed down Tyson Foods plant in Chicago, which will allow it to serve the local community better as well as the entire U.S.A. After the purchase, OSI offered many of the employees jobs with their company, so they didn’t become unemployed. OSI attributes its amazing growth to the fact that it always pays attention to local customer base and their needs. In short, if OSI’s customers in an area prefer natural and organic foods over other options, that is exactly what they give them. If they want cheaper options instead, they serve them those options.
OSI Indsustries is a one of the top 100 companies in the United States according to Forbes, and it has over 20,000 employees on its payroll. At the current time the company is worth over $6 billion and it has been serving people quality foods since 1909. Their dedication to sustainability and improving the local environment in the communities they serve has helped them to stay on top in a very competitive industry. OSI is extremely active in monitoring the food it serves and even plays an active part in overseeing how some of their products are grown. Looking ahead into the future, OSI is very optimistic as the CEO and president of the company prepare to expand even more.
