Sheldon Lavin, the CEO of OSI Group, is a well-known figure in this company having worked here for over 40 years. In the 1970s, he was very instrumental to this company’s growth and tremendous success that it did experience. Lavin became a third partner in this company in the 1970s, and later on a half partner after buying his brother’s interest. When his second brother retired from the company, Mr. Lavin gained full voting control of OSI Group.
About 20 years ago, OSI Group ventured into China. Currently, it runs eight factories, and two other facilities are being set up so that this company is set to become the single-largest producer of poultry in this country. In September 2012, OSI invested in a mega-plant in Henan province, and this plant is for further processing. In China, OSI’s major clients include Yum, Saizeriya, McDonald’s, Subway, Starbucks, Burger King and Papa John’s.
As recently as December 2016, OSI Group bought Flagship Europe. Flagship Europe has for a long time been known to its clients as the best supplier of sous vide equipment, Oliver James pies and frozen poultry across the UK. It is also loved by many for its high-quality sauces, dressings, and mayonnaise.
