OSI Industries is an Aurora, Illinois based company of meat processors and one of the top 100 food companies in America. After being founded by the Kolschowsky family over a century ago, the company steadily built up its base. The 1970s and 1980s were a time of huge expansion both on the domestic scene as well as globally. Chairman and CEO Sheldon Lavin had a vision for the company and this vision was made into a reality through persistence and perseverance in the face of challenge. Today, OSI Industries is one of America’s top food companies and has facilities in 17 countries worldwide.
OSI Industries has become one of America’s top 100 food companies because of the company’s family-oriented culture, its ability to meet all challenges that present themselves and above all else, its commitment to putting customers first. The company goes out of its way to make sure that every employee feels like family. The work environment at OSI is enthusiastic and everyone is encouraged to use their skills to help move the company forward. OSI also has a sterling reputation as an equal opportunity employer. This culture has been cultivated by Chairman and CEO Sheldon Lavin during his tenure as the head of OSI Industries and it has reaped the reward of seeing the company become not only one of America’s top food companies but one of the top food companies in the world.
Commitment to family values and customer service are not the only things that OSI has become synonymous with. The company is also highly regarded for its commitment to environmental sustainability. This commitment led to OSI being awarded the Globe of Honour Award from the British Safety Council in 2016. The award is given annually to organizations who show consistent excellence in environmental management. The British Safety Council’s 5-Star rating must be achieved in order for an organization to qualify for nomination. The award is another testimony to why OSI Industries is one of America’s top 100 food companies and a global leader in food distribution.
