Commodities such as food are quite delicate. Since food is a commodity that is always in high demand, the food business is quite viable. With that said, the likes of OSI Group are among the renowned companies that have dominated the food industry by ensuring that their products and customer service are exemplary. Moreover, despite the quality services offered by OSI Group, the leaders within the organization have also contributed significantly to the success of the company. Among the leader are such as Sheldon Lavin who is the current chief executive officer of the company.
Otto Kolschowsky is the man behind the current company that is famously known as OSI Group. As for Otto, he was among the German immigrants who decided to settle in Chicago, Illinois. After settling down, Otto decided to engage in the meat business by opening a butcher shop that would later transition to becoming one of the most successful companies dealing in food products.
The transition involved rebranding the business to Otto & Sons after the sons of Otto Kolschowsky became part of the business. Otto & Sons were the leading suppliers of meat products for the McDonald’s restaurant. There even came a time when Otto & Sons decided to construct a plan that would be dedicated to serving the McDonald’s restaurant. During this period, Sheldon Lavin came in handy since he assisted Otto & Sons to amass the capital that they needed to make sure that the plant was a complete success.
Since Otto & Sons had been present for decades and the company was experiencing growth on a positive scale day in day out, the sons of Otto Kolschowsky saw were fast approaching their retirement age. As a result, someone had to chip in to make sure that the company would still run as usual. Coincidentally, Sheldon Lavin was privileged to join the then rebranded company that was known as OSI Group. As a man who has been serving at OSI Group for over four decades, the input by Sheldon Lavin has contributed immensely when it comes to the growth of the company especially when it comes to the global expansion of OSI Group.
