Now Entering Russ's World
When you look back into the history of OSI Industries at the time when Sheldon was joining the company, and you compare with what it is today, that’s when you realize truly that Rome wasn’t built in one day. Sheldon Lavin joined the food industry as an ‘underdog,’ but he has now managed to create a name for himself in the industry. He made a drastic move from the Finance sector where he was a consultant and investor and became the CEO of OSI Group. Sheldon has worked tirelessly over the years to transform OSI Industries from a small meat processing company to include other products such as organic foods, vegetables, and sauces.
Sheldon’s path to success began about four decades ago when he decided to partner with the founders of Otto & Sons Company. His financial input into the operations of the business helped the company to expand its operations as well as increasing their output. Under the guidance of Sheldon, OSI Industries became the sole supplier of hamburgers to the McDonalds.
At first, Sheldon Lavin was hesitant to enter into a partnership with the sons of Otto Kloschowski. However, when their father passed on, he agreed to help them in managing the company with the condition that he would get the same financial leverage as the founders of the company.
Sheldon Lavin became actively involved in the affairs of Otto & Sons Company. He helped the Otto and Sons Company to rebrand to OSI Industries in 1975. In the same year, OSI Industries began venturing into overseas investment opportunities. It is at this time that McDonald’s confirmed OSI Industries as their primary supplier of meat products.
Between 1975 and 1990, Sheldon Lavin helped OSI Group to expand its operations into the European countries, U.S., South America, and Taiwan. Sheldon notes that his main mission when he took over reigns at OSI Industries was to transform it into a global company. To know more OSI’s Sheldon Lavin Receives Global Visionary Award.
