Sheldon Lavin Has Led OSI Group to Grow Beyond McDonald’s
With presence in 17 countries, OSI Group is currently known as one of the world’s biggest food processing companies. The corporation uses approximately 65 locations around the world to supplement its operations, with its chairman and CEO Sheldon Lavin leading the charge.
Having joined the company in the mid-1970s, Sheldon Lavin became part of a growing organization that was finding its footing in a new business sector. Since the firm was transitioning from being a family-operated butcher shop to a large-scale meat supplier for a fast food chain like McDonald’s, it was in a place where it needed all the leadership skills that it could get. That’s when Lavin rose to the occasion, and led the firm to its desired level of success. More information about Sheldon Lavin at Bloomberg.
From expanding OSI Group in multiple international locations to adding new processing products under its roster, Sheldon Lavin had the objective of the organization’s progress in mind. He formed a stronger bond with the firm’s primary client, McDonald’s, in order to become one of its most dependable vendors. At the same time, he also went ahead into forming relationships with other firms to expand the group of companies further.
The efforts have been successful to the point where Sheldon Lavin has led OSI Group into forming a partnership with none other than Impossible Foods, which with its plant-based protein is a hot commodity in the food sector.
According to details of the partnership, OSI Group will be making Impossible Foods’ plant-based burger patties, which are also known as the company’s Impossible Burger. These patties will be supplied to Impossible Foods’ most recent business partner, Burger King.
The collaboration is being seen as a “win-win situation” for both OSI Group and Impossible Foods. While OSI Group will be able to venture into a fast-growing part of the food industry, Impossible Foods will be able to meet the increasing demands of its Impossible Burger products.
Through this partnership, Sheldon Lavin and the OSI Group are also going to meet their goals of sustainable food production. All in all, the new venture doesn’t only take the corporation past McDonald’s, which is very much still a large client for the company, but it also lets it establish its prowess in newer sectors of food production.
