The Osi Group doesn’t surprise us as it continues to expand its multi-billion dollar grip on the food industry as it purchases and partners with other food companies that share its principals and ideologies. As a world leader in the industry of food production, it provides quality food products to retail food companies. Its expansion is obvious just based off last year’s statistics of the company as it proved itself yet again by opening seven brand new processing plants all around the world.
The president of the OSI group, David McDonald, is very aware of the budding companies extensive interest in growth and expansion. The group partners with other food companies to help them develop products that mean more to the customers while helping their business successfully grow. Their plan of partnership with other companies is designed to help them be able to “give the customer what they want” by offering a wide range of options and possibilities. These options include the ability for customers to select premium organic products along with natural foods allowing them to have a broader range past your regular everyday products.
One expansion step the OSI Group took was when they paid an enormous 7.4 million to a food plant based out of Chicago for a 200,000-square-foot space that allows for their business to grow larger. They have a long line of food products they produce including various pork products and beef products. Ranked as one of the worlds largest privately owned companies, the OSI group also produces many other foods like poultry, vegetables, dressings, sauces, and much more. They undertook yet more growth when they purchased Flagship Europe in hopes of helping assist the development of new clientele in their broadening global market. The company states that their new location in Europe will help them obtain a “broader presence” across Europe so they can continue to meet the evolutionary needs of their customer base.
Many credit much of OSI’s success to their CEO, Sheldon Lavin, a known innovative thinker with an extensive background in accounting and financing. Under his leadership the company has grown immensely and had a stronger-then-ever global presence among the world wide marketplace. The OSI group has grown rapidly over the course of the last couple years and plans to continue to expand their market, resources, and centers all across the globe. With 65 facilities booming in a shocking 17 countries the OSI group is no stranger to expansion and sets its eyes on continuing to do so.
