OSI Food Solutions is a global food distribution company with over 100 years of operation. Headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, the company has over 65 locations in 17 countries around the world. It has a vast network of food partners and touches almost every continent. OSI Group employs over 20,000 people and was listed in 2017 as the 58th largest privately owned company in America by Forbes.
OSI Food Solutions is a company that is forging ahead in the food processing and distribution industry at an exponential rate. In 2016 the company acquired a food processing facility that was previously owned by Tyson Foods in Chicago. According to Kevin Scott, senior executive vice president for OSI North America, the facility was needed to continue to expand their operations. In the same year, OSI Group also acquired a controlling share of Baho Foods and acquired Flagship Europe.
OSI Food Solutions continued its expansion by more than doubling the chicken output in the company’s plant in Toledo, Spain. At an upgrade cost of 17 million euros, the plant added a high-capacity production line, over 22,000 square feet of space, and 20 new jobs, including managerial jobs. The improvement and production increase is necessary to meet an increasing demand for chicken products throughout Portugal and Spain. OSI is ready to meet those demands, and the expansion will allow for the company to offer innovative new products as well.
Sheldon Lavin is the Chairman and CEO of OSI Food Solutions. He has almost 50 years of experience in the meat industry, and was a part of OSI Food Solutions’ success from the beginning. He was the banker that organized the financing for the company when it was in its beginning stages as a single, small, family-owned wholesale meat shop in Chicago. He continued to help with financing as the company grew, and eventually became a partner, and later, CEO. Because of Sheldon Lavin, OSI Food Solutions will continue to be a significant force in the global food processing and distribution industry.
