OSI Group has Appetite for Growth

According to the article on the News Version, the OSI Group is continuing to grow its multibillion-dollar status in the industry of food manufacturing with acquisitions of other food companies aligning well with the values and goals of the company. As a world leader, the company provides quality products and custom solutions for retail brands and food service. The productivity of OSI in 2016 alone shows the company’s emphasis on growth with a total of seven new facilities for production and processing worldwide.

OSI Group president, David McDonald explained, saying that he acknowledges the appetite of the company for growth not just in capacity. OSI product development is offering more to customers. By partnering with its customers on products that could help them expand their business, OSI Group is encouraging its suppliers to assist them to achieve increased sales. The company partnering method is giving demanding consumers more alternatives to getting what they need, including organic and natural foods, plus the potion of selecting premium specialties versus the ones that are hardly affordable.

McDonald credited the CEO of OSI Group, Sheldon Lavin, with pushing the organization to create the energy, making it grow, provide more food choices, and becoming more significant to clients. The company’s growth plan allows it to run in 16 nations outside the U.S. According to the daily newspaper, Chicago Tribune, OSI paid 7.4 million dollars for a former Chicago-based Tyson Foods plant. An OSI Industries spokesman stated that the facility, which is 200,000 square feet, provides help for continued business expansion. The line of the company includes beef items like hamburgers and meatballs, along with bacon, hot dogs, as well as other pork items, plus vegetable and poultry products.

According to Forbes, after more than 100 years in business, OSI Group is ranked among the largest privately-owned companies in the world. With the acquisition of Flagship Europe, OSI Group can provide resources for its new customers in international markets for a business that is already successful. The line of Flagship Europe includes various products ranging from pies to frozen poultry to sandwich fillings, dressings, sauces, marinades, and dips.

Since OSI Group opened its first family-owned meat market in 1909 in Chicago, one thing has remained constant, which is their steadfast dedication to their client’s success. That’s why many of the leading brands in the world regard them as their leading global food provider. The leading brands trust OSI always to deliver solutions of leading-edge food for their most critical processing needs and product development. Solutions that deliver value, quality, and also streamline processes while optimizing prices.
