OSI Industries continues with the process of expanding its multi-billion-dollar empires in the competitive food industry. To succeed in this process, it either buys or collaborates with other like-minded companies. OSI Industries looks into the partnering company’s status according to the goals and values. Its the best company in the provision of quality products and custom solutions for retail brands and food services. In 2016, the company displayed its emphasis on growth by acquiring new facilities to boost production around the world. The company’s President, David McDonald acknowledges that the company’s desire to grow continues ever since it started operations in the early 20th century. He affirms that the company works hard to ensure that it delivers more products to its customers as per its mission. David points out that the company prefers to collaborate with clients whose products add value to the business.
Additionally, the process of looking for productive partners increases the company’s ability to cater to all the customers’ needs. These needs include both organic and natural foods. They also get an option to select between basic and premium packages. McDonald is quick to credit Sheldon Lavin, the Chief Executive Officer because of his outstanding leadership as far as the growth of OSI Industries is concerned. He commends Lavin’s continuous leadership in helping the company produce different products hence giving the customers an option to choose their favorite.
For this reason, the company has spread its wings to over 16 countries outside the United States of America. Among the steps that the company took towards its growth in the local market was purchasing Tyson Foods at the cost of $ 7.4 million. The acquisition of the company that covered an area of 200,000 square-foot provided OSI with more room for expansion. In Europe, OSI Industries acquired Flagship Europe and Baho Foods companies to boost the supplies in the region. Flagship Europe added dressings, sauces, marinades, dips, and sandwich fillings while Baho Foods added deli meat, convenient foods, and snacks to OSI. Baho Foods’ five subsidiaries located in Germany and the Netherlands would help OSI in the consistent supply of its products to more customers. David McDonald and Sheldon Lavin continue leading the company in the right direction.
