OSI Food Solutions is a company that provides processed food products to its customers. The company has been operational for the past one century. In the period that the company has been operating. A lot of changes have happened. The company has developed from a butcher shop to now one of the leading companies in the world.
Under the leadership of CEO Sheldon Lavin, this company is now on the Forbes list of the top 100 private companies in the United States. OSI is currently valued at $6 billion. The company has grown tremendously in the past few decades, due to the impact of the top leadership.
OSI Food Solutions is expanding its operations further, this time focusing on areas that have high potential but are yet to be put under the company’s control. The main focus of the company currently seems to be in Europe. Europe has a high potential market for processed foods but OSI is yet to capture the market as they would wish. In the last three years, the company has made some huge strides towards putting this region under its control. They started by taking control of some big and high potential food companies in the region. Baho Food, a Dutch food company, is the first company from this region to be acquired by OSI.
OSI Food also acquired another UK food company known as Flagship Europe. This company was at the beginning of 2018 renamed Creative Foods. These two acquisitions have the potential to make OSI Food Solutions operation in Europe to gain momentum. The management at OSI right now is determined to see the company take control of this market. The focus that has placed in this region will definitely lead to success. The leadership has a keen eye on developments that are taking place in this industry and is trying as much as possible to become more prominent.
OSI Food Solutions is looking for organizations which offer them a chance to grow. In all the partnerships that they have made with other companies, they have retained the previous management teams. What they need is to have people who are near the customer. By training these people, the company can deal with issues that customers raise. The main objective of any business should be to follow what the customer wants. OSI Food Solutions is getting it right by working closely with the people who understand the customers more than the senior management do.
