Life Around The Map

Let's Go Travel


Nobody is prouder of the OSI Group’s accomplishments than its CEO Sheldon Lavin. It’s not surprising, considering why. The OSI Group has become one America’s Top 100 Food Companies. Starting back in 1970, when Lavin helped fund the fledgling Otto & Sons that would become eventually the OSI Group, he had no idea of the growth and success the company would see in the future. Headquartered in Aurora, Illinois OSI Group has worked diligently to expand its presence and reputation across the globe. With two facilities in the Chicago area, Geneva and Aurora Illinois, Riverside, California, and West Jordan, Utah, Lavin oversees the infrastructure and growth of the company. OSI Group currently employs over 20,000 people worldwide.

In addition, Sheldon Lavin believes safety and quality are top priorities at OSI Group, earning them a hard-earned spot in Forbes 100 America’s Largest Private Companies and Lavin himself landing the Global Visionary Award in 2016. To Lavin though, while the awards are an honor to receive, it’s all about what future holds, not just for him and the company, but the world as a whole. As such, a special emphasis has been placed on sustainability. OSI Group strives to build sustainable, responsible connections with the communities and the locations we all take part in. Keeping in mind the community, financial and ecological factors in all they do, they are always working to advance sustainability and the impact on the locale. These endeavors are implemented worldwide and have been acclaimed by the food industry. “The people who work with us and the quality of our products will always come first. That’s why we’re considered number one by the best leaders in the business. Every day is a new day to prove it.” Levin also adds when mentioning how the OSI Group was able to grow.
