In January 2007, an online organization that is well known in America for its unrelenting desire to see changes on issues such as climate change was launched. The organization is known as Avaaz. The 10 years of the company’s existence have seen issues such as human rights are well addressed. Vices such as corruption as well as conflict have also taken the stage for discussion. The popularity of the American global company has gone far and wide. For this reason, The Guardian reported that Avaaz is the largest and most popular online activist group across the globe. The name Avaaz was derived from Persian word meaning voice. This implies that Avaaz is an organization that aims at voicing out the issues that affect people on their day to day life.
Avaaz was founded by a group composed of professionals hailing from various community public sectors. The founders are persons who were indeed concerned on having good governance besides promoting democratic governance. Another section of individuals that helped to co-found the company is an organization known as MoveOn. On its self, MoveOn is a public policy advocacy group. The Service Employees International Union is yet another organization that accorded the relevant support to see to it that Avaaz came to existence.
Avaaz has been able to meet its goals basically because it is lead by an able leadership panel. In it is Ricken Patel hailing from Canada. He is the chief executive officer of this organization, as well as a major individual co-founder. Mr. Patel is hard working, resort oriented, all the more reason he is the CEO. Alongside these qualities is a master’s in Public Policy which he rightfully acquired from the Harvard University. He also studied politics, philosophy as well as economics from the Balliol College of the Oxford University. Before founding this organization, Mr. Patel was working with the International Crises Group. It is while here that he learnt ways of bringing parties that are considered rebellious on the table and have them negotiate. While working with this organization, Mr. Patel had the opportunity to serve people in Sudan, Afghanistan, Liberia, as well as Sierra Leone.
OSI Group is one of the largest private companies in the United States. In 2016 Forbes ranked it No 58 with a sale of 6.1 billion US dollars. This achievement is incredible for a company that started in Chicago, Illinois in 1909. Kolschowsky, a German immigrant, started up a small butcher shop in the city. After the end of the Second World War, he expanded his small retail meat market to a wholesale business. The family business was rebranded to Otto & Sons in 1928.
The partnership between Ray Kroc and Otto & Sons would later prove to be a great success and a new revolution to the whole production and processing of meat. OSI Group acquires Baho Food. The two decades following the handshake saw a significant transformation as Otto & Sons who were just regular regional suppliers in Chicago became a global corporation now known as OSI Group in 1975. The McDonald restaurants were being established in every city-state all over the US, and this brought more pressure to Otto& Sons as they were one of the four main meat suppliers for the McDonalds. And indeed they stepped up to the challenge as they also expanded their operations to meet the high meat demand.
Otto & Sons invented a new processing technology that made their task even much easier and affordable. The flash freezing technology which involves quickly freezing food products using liquid nitrogen indeed was a significant breakthrough for the Otto & Sons. After Otto & Sons establishing themselves as OSI Group, they diversified their operations in two ways. One, they would remain a constant supplier and supply food products locally, and another advance their operations to the Midwest. Appointing Lavin as the new chairman and CEO, his experience in investment and banking expertise has proved crucial to the company’s growth. OSI has expanded its operations in Mexico, India, Austria, Brazil, Poland, Hungary among many other countries. OSI Group process and supply various food products such as cow beef, poultry meat, and sausage.
OSI is thoroughly committed to integrating its technology to ensure food security and maintain a collaborative partnership with the producers. OSI has also won many environmental awards, some of them include: British Globe of Honor (2016), California Green Business Award (2016), Environmental Recognition Award (2018) from NAMI (North America Meat Institute)

However, they will also make the mistake of investing too much into different stock positions. The money simply isn’t spread out evenly enough. The average investor will also make the mistake of buying when they feel confident about the market. Instead, they need to invest when it is difficult precisely because prices are so low.
