Bearing the unpopular narrative of an immigrant-based venture, OSI Food Solutions steadily rose to America’s most successful companies. With over a century of existence since 1909, it remains the most preferred to meet customers’ customized needs.
Recently, it deservingly featured among America’s top 100 food processing companies due to the impact of its chairman and CEO. Sheldon Lavin transformed the firm into a global outfit through numerous acquisitions, joint ventures as well as mergers.
A good turn rewarded
With the rampant environmental degradation, the world has been implored to deliberations to address the debasement. Luckily, the ilk of OSI Solutions has an exemplary integrated approach to environmental management risks at the core of its operations. For this reason, the British Safety Council awarded its efforts with the coveted Globe of Honor Award in 2016. Unanimously, the British Safety Council leadership lauded the firm for leading in compliance to acceptable environmental standards.
Baho Food acquisition
In the world of business, survival of the fittest is inevitable. To entities struggling with their final entrepreneurial breaths, a buy-out would provide the much-needed lifeline. To remain efficacious in the international forefront, the Dutch-based Baho Food succumbed to an acquisition by OSI Food Solutions in a move that would not oust Baho Food’s managerial team. Optimistic of possible ramifications, both companies expressed the desire to batten from the agreement.
Tyson Food acquisition
Nonetheless, ‘East or West home is best’ is an adage OSI faithfully subscribes to in a bid to expand in America. With the imminent globalization, it remains passionate about expanding in America with the prime aim of creating additional manufacturing jobs back home. The company recently acquired Tyson Food in Southside Chicago at $7.4 million. On the verge of a requisite closure of the firm, this acquisition halted looming joblessness.
Flagship Europe buy-out
The European market is lucrative, albeit for legalized businesses. To expand its presence in Europe, OSI Food Solutions acquired the UK-based Flagship Europe. Commenting on this exciting development for them, Flagship Europe’s CEO Russell Maddock remained positive on unlimited access to increased resources, new clients, and global markets alongside augmenting its position in the market. On behalf of the acquirer, David McDonald anticipated a more significant presence in the broader European market.
With its massive presence in 17 countries globally, OSI Food Solutions undeniably remains a leading-edge global food provider. If anything, with over 20,000 people on its payroll, any country would gladly be its host for business. Trendsetting remains the only vocabulary known to the company’s ownership and workforce.
