OSI Group is a world leader in providing quality products and custom solutions for the food industry. In 2016, the company was named one of the Top 100 Food and Beverage Companies in the World, and it was its CEO, Sheldon Lavin, who was pointed to for being a large part of the reason OSI was chosen. On top of this, OSI was selected due to the fact that it always puts the consumer first when considering business moves. Because the company is continuing to do so and expanding its operations in the process, it is expected that it will continue to be a top 100 company for many years to come.
Part of OSI Group’s new expansion ambitions have led it to purchase a former Tyson Food plant that is on the south-side of Chicago. The purchase came in at a cool $7.4 million, and the 200,000 square-foot facility is in an excellent location to be able to support its other Chicago plant. It has been admitted that this new facility will not only help to deliver new and improved options to its Chicago base of customers but also to the United States, at-large. A unique thing about the purchase and OSI Group was the fact that the company offered many former Tyson employees who had just lost their jobs new jobs at the factory once it would be opened.
OSI Group also decided to acquire Flagship Europe, which is a European food company that provides its customer base with sous vide products, frozen poultry, pies, sauces, dressings, mayonnaise, and more. This move was hailed as a good one by Flagship Europe’s Chief Executive, Russell Maddock, who commented that resources that OSI could offer would greatly help the company to reach new markets around the world. The purchase has been commented on by the President and COO of OSI Group, David McDonald, who revealed that Flagship Europe offers complimentary products that will help OSI to better serve its own customer base.
People hoping to find a job and start a career with OSI Group will be happy know that the company is an equal opportunity employer that does not discriminate on any basis. The company is proud of the fact that it is ran more like a family rather than a business, and not only are the employees that work for OSI highly valued, but their families are also put on the same level. There isn’t a better place to work at.
