What Factors Can OSI Group Attribute To Its Century Of Success?
The last century has seen OSI group morph from a butcher shop in downtown Chicago to one of the most revered food processing and distribution company in the world. During this time, the meat company overcame numerous challenges that threatened the progress and sustainability of its brand. The company CEO and Chairman, Sheldon Lavin, attributes this to several operational attributes that the company has continued to cherish and live by. These include:
Dedication to customers
A few factors have remained steadfast in OSI operations since its establishment and topping them all is the company’s unwavering dedication to its customers. The meat processor values its customers and always strives towards improving the quality of their products. Even after the change of ownership and management with Sheldon Lavin take over, he worked towards cultivating and further strengthening this dedication and commitment to the provision of superior quality products that exceed customer expectations.
Adapting to technological changes and use of redundant factory systems remained one of the biggest challenges facing the OSI group. It not only played a role when the meat process lost a meat supply deal with McDonald’s but it pushed the operating costs up, eating into would be profits. It explains why Sheldon made modernization of the company through the adoption of advanced factory systems a top priority after taking over the company leadership. This has played a huge role in turning around OSI group fortunes.

The company’s UK branch has also been honored with the prestigious Globe of Honor award from the British Council severally in appreciation to its environmental conservation efforts. These fetes and commendations have only been made possible by the able company leadership under the stewardship of the current OSI Group chair and CEO Sheldon Lavin.
In the face of challenges, OSI has always leaned on the continued innovation, dedication to customers, and able leadership for an anchor. These all-important pillars can, therefore, be said to have played a key role in not only pushing the company agenda and vision forward but also contributing to a century of success in the meat industry.
