OSI Industries is one of America’s top 100 food companies. It also maintains a large global presence with facilities in 17 countries worldwide. The firm is based out of Aura, Illinois and is headed by Chairman and CEO Sheldon Lavin. Sheldon is a former financial consultant with degrees in finance, accounting and business. He first got into the food business with OSI Industries back when the company still operated under its original name Otto & Sons. From the very start, Sheldon had a vision of growing the company from a small U.S. food business into a global powerhouse. The company has garnered this level of success due to its stellar reputation for customer service. It always focusses on meeting the unique demands of each individual client. OSI offers custom food processing which includes vegetables, meats, fruits and other proteins, all made specifically to the individual customer’s specifications. Customer options range from beef, pork and poultry to pizzas, cookies and hot dogs. The company is always looking for ways to expand, whether from upgrading their existing infrastructure or acquiring valuable new assets to add to their already robust portfolio. This constant drive for improvement has led to some exciting new developments for OSI Industries recently in its European market. Upgrades to a current facility in Toledo, Spain has seen a doubling in chicken production and the acquisition of two great European food companies have added great value to the OSI portfolio of products.
OSI’s facility in Toledo, Spain has recently increased chicken production from 12,000 tons to 24,000 tons per year. The facility expects to be able to produce in excess of 45,000 total tons per year of beef, pork and chicken. This increase has been due to a €17 million investment in upgrades at the facility. OSI has also recently acquired Dutch convenience food, deli meats and snacks producer Baho Food along with frozen poultry, pie and condiment producer Flagship Europe. The company is confident that these recent upgrades and acquisitions will be well worth the investment as they add increased production and new products to the company portfolio that will help to better meet the needs of OSI’s customers as well as attracting new customers.
