OSI Group Continues to Achieve Food Processing Success
For over 100 years, OSI Group has supplied a variety of food products internationally. Led by Chief Executive Officer, and owner Sheldon Lavin, OSI continues to achieve success. OSI Group is a privately-owned company, consisting of 65 processing plants and 200,000 employees.
In 2016, the company made over $6 Billion in revenue. It is no surprise that Forbes named OSI Group “#58 America’s Largest Private Companies” in 2016. Additionally, OSI Group has a strategic partnership with McDonald’s Corporation.
OSI Group supplies many different beef products including hamburgers, pork, meatballs, and hot dogs. Furthermore, the company processes poultry products such as grilled chicken, chicken fingers, and turkey products. In addition, OSI Group processes vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and much more.
OSI Group’s growth is attributed to many factors including acquisitions and environmental programs.
Latest Acquisition to OSI Group
In 2016, OSI Group acquired Baho Food, expanding their large footprint in Europe. Baho Food oversees five processing facilities in Germany and the Netherlands. The Dutch company specializes in poultry, pork, deli meat, and fast food processing. Acquiring Baho Food is a good strategic move for OSI Group, as both companies bring years of expertise in food processing operations.
Environmental Awards and Recognition
In 2016, OSI Group was awarded the esteemed Globe of Honour UK award. This award is presented to only the top companies that display environmental management excellence. Remarkably, this is the third time OSI Group won this award in five years.
Recently, OSI Group’s Riverside, California food processing plant was awarded the California Green Business Award. The plant administered multiple environmental initiatives including carpooling, a waste water program, and lighting efficiency.
In 2018, two of OSI Group’s facilities received environmental awards from the North American Meat Institute. The Illinois and Wisconsin plants were honored for managing stellar environmental programs. In the last five years, four other OSI Group facilities received this esteemed award.
