OSI Food Solutions is the largest food processing company in the world. The company has its headquarters in the United States, but its operations are all over the world. In recent years, the company has been focusing on domestic and international expansion. In fact, the last five years have been some of the most successful in the expansion plan of the company. OSI Food Solutions under the leadership of Sheldon Lavin, who is the CEO, has been focusing on expansion for the past four decades when he joined the company. He is the longest-serving executive in the firm. He started the global expansion plan, and until today, he is still doing it. When Sheldon was brought into the management of the company, his role was to assist in capitalization and management of the company as it ventured into the international market. Here, we shall look at some of the expansion programs that have been carried out in the last few years.
In the domestic market, OSI Food Solutions bought a food processing plant in Chicago. The plant was formerly owned by Tyson Foods which closed down the business. This is the largest plant that the company has in the United States. The plant measures 200,000 square feet which is ample space to accommodate the growing production needs of the company in North America. Demand for products have been going up in recent years, and there has been a cause of alarm to the company. It has been forced to take measures that will ensure that they are operating effectively and that they can meet the demands of the Northern America market.
The Tyson Foods plant was originally designed to support the production of poultry products, but this will change with the takeover of OSI food Solutions. They deal with more than just this one product. Among the products that they produce are made from beef and pork.
With the recent development of the company, we are likely to see the company gain more ground in the domestic market. Although it is the biggest company in the world, it is still making its presence felt in more places.
