Lavin went on to transform the company into an international organization that is now known as OSI Group.

Sheldon Lavin began working with Otto and Sons in 1957. Otto and Sons was originally a family-owned organization that started as a meat market in the early 1900s. The company was working with the McDonald’s corporation. It had a chance to be the sole provider of meat to McDonald’s by building a state-of-the-art processing plant that catered to the restaurant chain. The founders of Otto and sons did not have the funding for such a facility. Sheldon Lavin was brought in to oversee the process and be a consultant on the inner working relationship of the two organizations.
Sheldon Lavin was requested by the executives at McDonald’s to be more involved with the operations at Otto & Sons. Lavin agreed to come in as a partner only if he would have an equal say in the decision-making like the other owners. The ownership agreed and Lavin began working with Otto and Sons full time. The original owners eventually settled into retirement and sold their interests in the company. Otto and Sons then became known as OSI Group. Lavin took over full control and began to make overseas investments with the organization.
Sheldon Lavin is highly recognized for his work at OSI Group. He received the Global Visionary award on February 20th 2016 for his leadership abilities. Lavin was also awarded the Vision World Academy honor. This was due to his international contributions to the corporate growth of his organization.
Sheldon Levin is also heavily involved in philanthropy and believes that young executives should be just as involved in their communities as they are in their organizations. Charity inspires the greatness in individuals and corporations according to Sheldon Lavin. He has been able to set this example at OSI Group by building a diversified staff with an extremely low turnover rate.
