With stock options, employees reap benefits only when the company performs well, meaning they are likely to work extra hard to sustain high share prices.


He goes on to explain that with this strategy, employees only lose their options if share prices drop tremendously beyond a particular limit and then fail to rise again within a week. This is likely to be accepted by a majority of employees as they know their stock options are safe. Shareholders who are non-employees also do not have to fear about their ownership shares declining because the knockout strategy minimizes possibilities of over-hang when applied to stock options.

OSI Group continues its expansion in the European market under its pioneering leadership team, David McDonald, President and Sheldon Lavin, CEO.

David McDonald recognizes the products suitable for their customer’s growth and encourages the suppliers to help them meet their goals. His focus is on food safety, sustainability, and green practices. However, he credits OSI’s tremendous growth to Sheldon Lavin.

Sheldon Lavin has been with OSI since it opened in 1909 and assisted the family-owned company with its major business decisions. He has been and continues as the major creative talent of OSI. Innovation is an instinctive talent of his, and with it, he is able to instill the desire for the organization to continue pushing forward and offering more food choices which have resulted in OSI Group becoming the desired food service for its customers.

Recent European expansions include Flagship Europe and Baha Food, a Dutch manufacturer. The Flagship product line includes meatballs, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken products, and vegetables. The Baha line includes marinades, dips, dressings, sauces, and frozen pies. Partnering with both companies has allowed OSI to broaden presence and expand its product portfolio.

OSI also exists in India partnering with Vista Processed Foods, a new plant in Poland, a joint-venture with GenOSI in the Philippines, a partnership with Edeka grocery chain in Germany and most recently Hynek Schlachthof Gmbh also in Germany.
Several reasons OSI Group has been so successful in worldwide expansion has been its high standards of production and its ability to meet the needs of various cultures.

OSI continually employs updated technology for safety and quality standards. They also learned through these various acquisitions throughout the world, that all cultures have different tastes. Therefore, with this knowledge, they’ve had to adapt their manufacturing of the foods to meet the requirements of each particular market.

Not only has the growth of OSI Group expanded outside the United States, its domestic expansion continues moving forward. In 2016 it purchased a former 200,000 square-foot Tyson plant in Chicago near its current facility. This will allow infrastructure for continued growth. Today as the company continues to grow and expand internationally as well as domestically, OSI Group is one of the largest privately held food processing companies in the world.

OSI Group opened its doors as a meat market in Oak Park, Illinois in 1909 by founder Otto Kolschowsky. For many years it was known by the name Otto and Sons.

Through many years of an impeccable reputation of supplying quality meats to McDonald’s, in 1955 it became one of four vendors McDonald’s chose as their meat supplier.

About ten years later with more growth and expansion, Otto and Sons became OSI Industries and became McDonald’s exclusive supplier.
Over decades of various acquisitions, partnerships and joint ventures, OSI Group now operates 60 facilities in 17 countries.

As OSI Group continues its growth as one of the world leaders in the food processing industry, its corporate atmosphere promotes and embraces an entrepreneurial spirit. The leadership is continually looking for creative employees who want to contribute to the growth of the organization and grow to their full potential.
