OSI Group: The Man Behind The Meats

When you go to the store to buy food, you rarely think about where the food comes from, and you really don’t think about who packages it. When you go to a restaurant or fast food joint, you don’t think about where these companies are getting their foods. Well you should! Not all companies take pride in their products like the OSI Group does.

The OSI Group has won numerous awards for food safety and management as well as environmental management awards.

The OSI Group is the company that us regular civilians couldn’t care less about. Well, at least thats what we think. OSI Group provides food products to your favorite food places like McDonald’s, KFC, Subway, and even Papa Johns! As a matter of fact, When the OSI Group was “Otto & Sons”, the very first McDonald’s (1955) chose Otto & Sons as their supplier of fresh meat!

Sheldon Lavin, the companies chairman and CEO, recently won the Global Visionary Award back in 2016 for turning his goal into a reality. When Sheldon took control in the 80’s, he said he either had to build OSI Group into something big or he had to go back to finance (where he spent most of his career up until OSI). “Expanding and diversifying the business was probably the single most exciting part. I’m Proud of the fact that we have circled the globe and that we carried the OSI culture overseas…” -Sheldon Lavin
