OSI Group: Cutting-Edge Technology for Cutting-Edge Retail

Technology has been incorporated into just about every field work in today’s modern society. The advancements in technology over the past 20 years has been heaven-sent to some degree because it can make a business more efficient. Foodservices have benefited greatly from technological advancements, and OSI Group epitomizes this notion brilliantly. Whether it’s the flash-freezing technology of cryogenics, or it’s the speed of a high-capacity machine, OSI has taken advantage of its options. The company’s immense size says it all. OSI Group is simply humungous in physical size as it stretches across nearly six continents. It has factories, offices and facilities in 17 nations, including Ukraine, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, India, Brazil, Poland, Japan and many more.

In the United States, OSI has facilities in Illinois, in Iowa, in California, in Utah and in Wisconsin. Since it was known as a major beef provider back in the day, the company built a plant that catered to its hamburger-retailor clients. OSI has fully served its community. In 1975, the company changed its name from Otto & Sons to OSI Industries. The change came because of its huge growth. This 75-year transformation was long overdue, and it marked a new era that was filled with technological advancements. This was the changing of the guard in a sense. Otto & Sons’ owners were retiring and a new breed of businessman was taking over. Sheldon Lavin just so happened to be that guy, and he has helped OSI Group to expand even more. Lavin took over as the CEO, and he has used his brilliance in finance to make big business deals.

Production and growth has skyrocketed since Lavin has come into power. OSI Group has used expansions, has used acquisitions and has used joint ventures to strengthen its foundation. There simply isn’t anything left to say, but OSI Group will surely go down as one of the best food providers in modern-day history.
