OSI Industries ranks as one of the largest food producers of food products in the industry. The company was founded as a small family-run butcher shop at the turn of the 20th century. It started in Chicago, and OSI has remained loyal to the state of Illinois since 1909. Their international headquarters are located in Aurora. The organization has been the primary beef supplier to the McDonald’s chain since the 1950s when founder Ray Kroc opened his first restaurant. The current Chief Executive Officer of OSI Industries is Mr. Sheldon Lavin, and he has been with the organization since the mid-1970s.
It is through Sheldon’s solid and innovative leadership skills that the company has achieved its current massive global status. OSI Industries stands firm on its commitment to sustainable food production, and it has staunchly faced the challenges that go along with the use of today’s technological advancements in the industry. Sheldon Lavin says that along with the rewards comes the practice of corporate responsibility to develop environment-friendly sustainable methods of production. The organization currently operates manufacturing facilities in excess of 65, and they are located in 17 different countries.
OSI Industries created a position to ensure that their efforts and standards for sustainability are met. Last year, OSI Group LLC announced the appointment of Nicole Johnson-Hoffman to fill the role of Chief Sustainability Officer. Nicole is currently a Senior Vice President in the organization. She serves the company in the global business unit for the McDonald’s chain of restaurants. Nicole will take on her new role in addition to her current responsibilities. OSI Industries is demonstrating its resolve to take the right steps as a global leader. As the organization pursues its sustainability efforts in the US and across the globe, Nicole will oversee the global teams as they follow the strategy set forth by Sheldon Lavin. Click here.
