OSI Food Solutions is a food company that operates all over the world to offer its customers premier food solutions that can be customized to their taste. In recent news, the company was chosen to be a part of the Top 100 Food Companies in America, and the reason for making this prestigious list has a lot to do with the work that Sheldon Lavin has done and continues to do. Sheldon Lavin is the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman for the company, and he received the Global Visionary Award previously for his lifetime of dedication and hard work he has devoted to OSI and maintaining its high environmental standards. The Vision World Academy from India gave him the award and called him a visionary in his field.
OSI Food Solutions was created in 1909 and is now worth over $6 billion. The company has been working to increase its sustainability and improve upon its already high environmental standards for the last few years. David McDonald, the company’s President, has been a large part of these efforts, and he also believes in the company’s mission to continue to expand its operations. Part of this expansion effort prompted the company to purchase Baho Food, which is a Dutch food manufacturer that focuses on convenience foods, snacks, and deli meats. McDonald commented that the acquisition will give OSI an expanded presence in Europe and that what the company offers will add perfectly to what OSI already has available for its European customers.
The acquisition of Baho Food by OSI Food Solutions will also add to OSI’s processing facilities in the Netherlands and Germany. The company adds five subsidiaries to OSI’s already large amount of offerings, and these are Henri van de Bilt, Gelderland Frischwaren, Bakx Foods, Q Smart Life, and Vital Convenience. It was decided that John Balvers, the Managing Director of Baho Food, would stay on along with his team of managers. They will be helping to execute the growth strategy that OSI has been implementing in all of its operations. Mr. Balvers commented that he was excited about joining forces with OSI Food Solutions and that the company has a great relationship with its suppliers customer base. He believes that the combined strength of both companies will enable them to broaden their offerings and accelerate their growth.
Looking ahead, OSI Food Solutions plans on purchasing more of the kinds of companies that can aid with its mission of providing excellent food to the world.
