The OSI Group was founded several decades ago, and throughout this time it’s become one of the most successful food processors on the planet. Much of this success has been directly related to a partnership with McDonalds, although there have been a significant amount of other successes too. One of the key people behind the companies success has been Sheldon Lavin, who serves as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OSI Group, as well as the President of OSI International Foods Ltd.
Sheldon Lavin has been involved with the OSI Group since the early 1970s, when it was still known as Otto & Sons; Mr. Lavin helped finance the company and eventually became more heavily involved. As such, he’s been a part of much of the success that the company has seen for almost half a century. Since coming on board, Sheldon Lavin has helped to take the company from a family-owned business to what may be the largest food processing company in the United States, and perhaps even worldwide. This has led to Mr. Lavin receiving a variety of awards for his work; some of the most notable of these include the likes of India’s Vision World Academy’s Global Visionary Award, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015 from RSM US LLP.
However, this has led to many people to wonder what’s behind Sheldon Lavin’s drive to make the OSI Group so successful. In short, this is because when he first partnered with the company, he had a unique vision for the company that persists to this day. In the beginning, Mr. Lavin dreamed of creating a world-class food processing enterprise that would be virtually unrivaled. Since then, that vision has barely changed, with Sheldon Lavin saying that his current vision for the company is to continue being one of the largest companies in the global food industry. Furthermore, he’s also noted that he’s aiming to continue creating world-class outcomes for everyone that they work with. This also includes ensuring that every aspect of the companies operation is consistently done to the highest possible standards. As such, this is something that the OSI Group has aimed for the past few decades.
