Managing More Than One Angle
Diversity is the key to balancing a business if it works off creative ideas and innovation. The more options you have as sources of revenue, the more you can sustain in the long run. Diversity also gives businesses more access to resources. It takes a larger network and a broader access to tools or people to smoothly operate business.
The OSI Group includes OSI International Foods and OSI Industries for the reason of diversity. The OSI Group operates as a parent organization and umbrellas a variety of other companies through affiliates. The OSI group is the world’s leading food processing group. The agency services giant food chains and country needs.
The Advantage Of Affiliated Groups
The OSI Group can offer a wide array of food products like meat and because it branches its work into affiliates and specialists. The diversity the agency has is also an advantage to its market position as the world’s leader in meat processing. The affiliate sections of the OSI Group let the agency manage all business cycles.
The business cycle that exists in food processing consists of the basic systems required in fundamental manufacturing. These stages consist of production, packaging and then distribution. The coalition of the OSI Group allows it to manage each of these areas but as separate agencies and groups.
All In The Hands Of Sheldon Lavin
This structure we find with the OSI Group is a result of the agency’s CEO Sheldon Lavin. Sheldon Lavin got his start as a business professional after he earned himself a substantial reputation in the financial markets. This financial understanding is exactly what the OSI Group needed roughly ten years ago.
The agency is now branching off into international markets and is making a name for itself that stands on the financial background of Sheldon Lavin. The end result is a very ambitious drive to accomplish the work needed that sustains his new international market.
The mathematical precision of Sheldon Lavin is clear in the work OSI is achieving. The international market is booming, and there’s only one agency that’s claiming the emerging business market.

It was recently reported that Jay-Z’s groundbreaking deal with touring powerhouse, Live Nation, is set to end next year. The original partnership, which was worth $150 million over a ten-year span, was a 360 deal, which allotted either party to buy the other’s stake in the company, or the entire company outright if they were in the position to do so. While Live Nation is set on ending their partnership with Jay-Z concerning the recorded music of the artists under the Roc Nation umbrella, due to the lucrative nature of their touring deal, they have been vocal about wanting to continue their relationship.
Roc Nation currently houses a roster of musical titans, such as Fat Joe, Rihanna, Shakira, Meek Mill, and even Jay-Z. The music mogul, along with his close friend and high powered executive at Roc Nation, Dez Perez, was recently spotted outside the Santa Monica offices of Sir Lucien Grainge; the Chief Executive Officer of Universal Music Group. Inside sources have suggested that a new partnership may be brewing. If this speculated deal were to go through, this could mean the bolstering of the entire Roc Nation, as well as the artists under the umbrella. According to insiders at Universal Music Group, the company is already invested in the artists at Roc Nation on a small scale, but are interested in upping the ante.
Desiree “Dez” Perez is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Roc Nation, overseeing many aspects of the company’s production, including publishing and management. She has been one of Jay-Z’s closest associates for the better part of 20 years, helping to guide the trajectory of his career throughout that time. As a part of Jay-Z’s inner circle, Dez Perez has been known as an aggressive negotiator and was recently involved with the mega-deal between Samsung and Rihanna.

For most people shopping for food at their local supermarket their is no thought given to the origin of their purchases. It is also quite certain that most restaurant diners are equally unconcerned with where the ingredients for the dishes they enjoy were purchased. In most cases the companies that provide the food we enjoy operate with not much fan fare.
OSI Group, a company headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, is a leading food production company. OSI produces a variety of product but maintains a keen focus on protein items. These items are either packaged and sold at local supermarkets or served to customers at restaurant chains.
OSI Group is a privately held corporation. Led by CEO Sheldon Lavin and president David McDonald, OSI Group presently operates in 17 countries and is focused on further expansion.
OSI Group has recently concentrated its expansion efforts in Europe. In August 2016, the company purchased a controlling interest in Baho Food. Baho food is a Dutch company that maintains facilities the Germany and the Netherlands. At the time of acquisition, Baho food provided food to eighteen European countries. This number is expected to increase under the leadership of OSI Group.
OSI Group’s European effort also includes the 2016 purchase of Flagship Europe. Flagship Europe produces frozen poultry, pies and condiments. It is expected that with the support now provided by OSI Group that Flagship Europe will be better equipped to make use of new opportunities on the continent of Europe.
Despite OSI Groups focus on international expansion the company has not abandoned all domestic focus. In June of 2016 the company expanded its territory in the United States via the purchase of a Chicago food plant that had once been operated by Tyson Foods. Tyson Foods had originally intended to close the plant before being offered $7.4 million by OSI Group. OSI Group’s acquisition of this plant saved the local community of south side Chicago over 500 jobs while greatly increasing the production capabilities of the company.
The longevity of OSI Group has proven to be just as impressive as the company’s growth. David McDonald believes that the key to the company’s success has been its ability to engage the local consumer base with foods specifically tailored to cultural tastes. With each newly entered market, OSI Group is careful to educate itself in regards to the desires and needs of the local market to enable the company to sufficiently meet these requirements.

OSI Group started simply as Otto & Sons, a humble American, Chicago area butchery, and grocer, in 1909. It was a family owned shop founded by Otto Kolschowsky himself, who established the ethics and quality the later organization would continue to be known for. The humble meat shop would expand worldwide and grow to more than 65 shops, managing food production for numerous regions. It continues to expand in the present day.
In 1955 Otto and Sons developed what would soon become a powerful partner, McDonald’s. The quality of McDonald’s hamburgers would be supplied by the butchery, and the meat company would grow alongside the restaurant chain as it soon required an Otto & Sons plant dedicated to serving the chain. In the 1970’s Otto and Sons would follow McDonald’s beyond the United States with the support of future CEO Sheldon Lavin, while renaming to OSI Group. Lavin’s support would rocket OSI Group to new markets, with OSI Group serving Germany, Spain, Brazil, and Austria by the 1980’s and the Philippines, Mexico, and Poland by the 90’s. Poultry became a big new business for the company in the 2000’s, with expansion into India and Canada to follow alongside expansion in the United States.
Now CEO, Sheldon Lavin continues to mark his leadership with rapid expansion and a genuine interest in the companies employees and ethics. While OSI has become an international corporation, Lavin has succeeded in keeping his organization United despite its ethnic diversity. He is devoted to lessoning OSI’s environmental impact. He keeps OSI Group honest with policies that limit damage to the environment and remain sustainable for years to come across all of its facilities.

Lavin’s history with the company extends past four decades to when he worked with the original Kolschowsky family. When the family retired he had doubts about continuing their legacy when control of OSI Group passed to him, as he did not want to stay in the leadership role unless he could positively expand the company. Now with numerous plants and with representatives that span oceans, OSI Group continues to deliver quality meat to the public.
