Posted by LLJ43 | Posted in CEO, Entrepreneur | Posted on 13-01-2018


OSI Group is a leading manufacturer of food in the industry. The company has an international presence with a workforce that spans across several different continents. OSI has been in business for up to 100 years. The company originally began as a family-owned meat market in the Chicago region during the early 1900s. Sheldon Lavin became involved in the 1950s with the organization that was then known as Otto & Sons. He was an unlikely candidate to become the CEO of a meat manufacturing organization. Sheldon Lavin had his roots in the banking industry and was a investor with his own consulting firm.

Lavin became involved with Otto and Sons when the company had a chance to be the sole provider of meat to the McDonald’s Corporation. McDonald’s was expanding at a tremendous rate. It was using hundreds of meat suppliers at the time and decided that their operation would work best if they only used Otto and Sons. However, the company would need a brand new meat processing plant in order to fulfill the needs of the McDonald’s Corporation. The owners of Otto and Sons did not have the funding for such an evolution. Sheldon Lavin was brought in to oversee the financial transactions of building the new meat processing plant for Otto and Sons.

Sheldon Lavin was initially supposed to be a consultant with the project. Over time McDonald’s requested that Lavin become more involved with the operations. He agreed on the pretense that if he became a partner that he would have the same decision-making capabilities as the other owners of the company. The original founders of Otto and Sons eventually agreed to bring Lavin in as a partner and he began to play a role in the organization full-time.

As the original founders of Otto and Sons began to settle into retirement, Lavin took over more and more control of the organization. He soon begin to spread the company’s interest into overseas investments. By this point he had taken over full control of the company and it eventually became known as OSI Group.

OSI Group continues to spread its influence throughout the international community. It is an award-winning organization that has made several acquisitions in order to diversify its profile within food manufacturing. Sheldon Lavin believes that growth is important because it creates opportunities for its staff and clients. He is proud of the fact that the employee base at OSI Group has a very low turnover rate. People come to the company to make careers for themselves.
