OSI Food Solutions started out as a small, family-run meat processing business called Otto & Sons over a century ago. Today OSI is not only one of America’s top 100 food business, but a worldwide leader in supplying unique food solutions to retailers and the food service business. The company that started out as a local Chicago, Illinois area outfit and is still based in Aurora, Illinois is now operating in 17 countries worldwide. Large expansion started in the 1970s and continues today. The company recently made several major upgrades and acquisitions.
Expanded Production Due To Big Facility Upgrades:
OSI Food Solutions have recently made several facilities upgrades that have boosted the company’s production in key areas. A €17 million upgrade to the facility in Toledo, Spain has the location processing over 45,000 tons of meat per year and a doubling of chicken production from 12,000 tons per year to 24,000 tons per year. Another big upgrade in processing capability was recently made near the home of OSI Food Solutions with the purchase of the former Tyson food plant. This purchase will allow OSI to double food production in the region as this is now the company’s second Chicago area location.
Two Big Acquisitions In Europe Greatly Enlarge OSI’s Footprint In Market:
European food companies Baho Food and Flagship Europe are now part of the OSI Food Solutions family. These companies add new lines of product to the OSI portfolio. Company executives expect that the addition of Baho and Flagship should be a huge plus in the campaign to gain new customers and they are sure that current customers will be delighted with the new offerings as well.
The Executives Behind These Big Moves:
The OSI Food Solutions executives who are behind these big recent moves are Chairman and CEO Sheldon Lavin and President and COO David McDonald. Sheldon Lavin has been with OSI Food Solutions since 1970 and has been the driving force behind OSI’s growth from regional food processing company to globally recognized powerhouse. Prior to joining OSI, Sheldon was a financial advisor. Since he joined the OSI family in 1987, David McDonald has been a major contributor to the growth of the company. Speaking on the Baho Food acquisition, he stated, “The company’s portfolio of products and brands complements OSI’s current processing strengths while broadening our capabilities to best serve the evolving needs of our customers.”
