According to Forbes, OSI Industries ranks as the 58th largest American private company. The company is also ranked as one of the top 100 American food businesses. OSI is also a highly decorated company that has won numerous awards for excellence over the years. The most recent major prize the company claimed was the Globe of Honour from the British Safety Council.
The global food processor supplies products such as processed meats, fish, pizza and vegetable items to major foodservice chains. OSI Industries is headed up by a highly successful and experienced team of executives that include Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Sheldon Lavin, President David McDonald and Chief Financial Officer Sherry DeMeulenaere. The executive leadership at OSI Industries has been pushing an aggressive and highly successful campaign of expansion over the last few years in the European market. These acquisitions include upgrades to facilities and the addition of several amazing companies to the OSI Industries family.
The 2016 acquisitions of Dutch food company Baho Food and British food company Flagship Europe made headlines for OSI Industries recently. These acquisitions are part of a ramped-up effort that outfit has been making in recent years in the European market. Both companies fit nicely into the OSI formula and add great value to the brand. Baho has a huge reach across continental Europe while Flagship Europe is a key acquisition in OSI’s British business dealings. The company also recently announced that the name Creative Foods Europe will replace Flagship as the company’s name.
Other major OSI headline from the 2016 European campaign include upgrading the facility located in Toledo, Spain. Due to increased demand, it was necessary for OSI to massively increase chicken production at the plant and so upgrades to the production line had to be made. The results have been great as production has recently doubled with the improvement.
The British Safety Council naming OSI as its 2016 recipient of the Globe of Honour was in many ways the capstone to OSI’s banner year in the European market. The award recognizes that OSI is committed to maintaining its operations to the highest of environmental standards. OSI is a 5-Star rated organization under the British Safety Council’s rating system. It was part of an award-winning year in general for OSI. CEO Sheldon Lavin also won the World Visionary Award from the Vision World Academy of India in 2016.
