Most people don’t think much about where the food they purchase in the grocery store comes from. They happily buy what they like and then move on with their life. There are many food companies, but not all of them care about providing quality foods from the finest of ingredients. OSI Industries does care, and this attitude has helped it to become one of the most successful food companies on the planet.
OSI Industries is headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, but it has facilities located all around the globe. The company has been named as one of the top 100 American Food Companies and its leadership team has been recognized on many occasions for the good work they have done. OSI is a privately held company, and its president, David McDonald, believes this is part of the reason it has been able to thrive in its industry.
In recent years, OSI Industries has broadened its reach and improved upon its capabilities by making many different purchases and acquisitions. In 2016, the company acquired a controlling share of the European food company Baho Food. It also acquired the Dutch food manufacturer Flagship Europe. Both of these acquisitions have helped OSI to better serve its customer base in Europe with new food offerings.
OSI Industries also recently upgraded its facility in Toledo, Spain by adding a high capacity production line. During the upgrade, then company seized upon the opportunity to also upgrade the facilities electricity system, which is now incredibly more efficient than it was before. OSI employs more than 20,000 people from all over the world, and it added 60 more employees to this count in Toledo after the upgrades were finished.
Most large food companies do not maintain the personal connection that OSI Industries does with its customers and clients. Everywhere it does business, the company works closely with the local community to ensure it is managing environmental risks and remaining a sustainable company. OSI also engages in philanthropy through donations to the Ronald McDonald House charity organization as does its CEO, Sheldon Lavin. While many food companies are in existence to simply earn a dollar, OSI truly cares about the people who eat the food it produces.Posted by seatheocean on .
