OSI Group has grown substantially over the years under the leadership of their owner and CEO Sheldon Lavin who always entertained a global vision for the company. They have over 65 food processing facilities in 17 countries at the last count. They have developed a significant range of expertise in strategically acquiring companies that complement and improve on what they’re already doing.
One such example is their recent purchase of the former Tyson Foods plant in Chicago which encompasses 200,000 square feet. It happens to be situated near other OSI Group facilities which made it an attractive opportunity. The additional space that this purchase brings into the OSI fold makes continued growth an easier proposition in going forward.
Europe is another region where OSI Group has a strong presence and it was bolstered with their recent acquisition of Baho Food which is a Dutch manufacturer. They specialize in convenience foods, deli meats, and snacks among their primary products. This acquisition strengthens their European operations and gives them a broader reach on the continent. The two companies mesh well together with one Baho executive noting the outstanding relationship that OSI Group maintains with customers and suppliers.
OSI Group has immense capabilities as they are able to develop food items from concept to finished product. They regularly help customers create custom foods according to their specifications. This includes the design of a manufacturing and supply chain that address complex challenges.
Culinary innovation is a hallmark of OSI Group and they operate several research and design facilities to help customers speedily bring products to market. They also widely use test kitchens as well as specialists in every production facility to ensure the highest quality and adherence to the needs of their customers. They can work with customers who know exactly what they want and help those who don’t by highlighting trending ideas from around the world.
Food safety is a great concern for the company and they implement strict protocols to ensure that this issue is properly taken care of. Their food quality assurance experts are found throughout their operations which gives great peace of mind to customers who rely upon the highest level of quality and safety. Their standards often exceed customer and regulatory requirements which places them on a rare footing among food processors.
OSI Group is also convinced that they wouldn’t be where they are today without the driving force of their business which is their employees. They are highly valued and they strive to put in place a challenging, rewarding work environment.
