Some of the biggest news in food manufacturing in 2018 comes from OSI Group. This Illinois-based food processor will embark on a 50/50 merger with Australian-food processor Turi Foods. This merger will combine each of the companies’ strengths to build a world-class food solutions company. Both companies already has facilities in Geelong and Thomastown, Victoria. Turi Foods is the best candidate for the job because it shares many of the same views as OSI. Turi Foods is also a leader in poultry farming, and it’s one of the largest processors of poultry in Australia today. Sam Cuteri, chairman of Turi Foods, stated that “we look forward to bringing these two powerhouses of the food industry together as one.”
OSI Group needs no introduction as it’s one of the premier food processors in the world today. This mega company extends across multiple continents, it has nearly 65 state-of-the-art plants, and it has decades of experience. This American-food processor is actually made up of test kitchens, general offices, pilot plants and culinary-innovation centers. As of today, OSI is registered as a multi-billion dollar business, and it’s known to be a top 100 company. Bacon bits, pizza, hotdogs, fritters, Tofu, chicken wings, steak, pasta, cheese, tomatoes, sliced bacon, poultry products, pot roast, desserts, sauces, chili and many other foods are being produced here in record numbers. OSI Group has definitely been able to evolve with the times, which partially explains success.
In 2016, CEO Sheldon Lavin was presented with the Global Visionary Award for his innovative-visionary tactics. On the other hand, OSI’s greatness in environmental management has caused it to earn the Globe of Honor Award in 2016. This was OSI’s third time winning the award over the past five years. As you can see, OSI Group is getting things done in the boardroom, and it’s getting things done in the field with much success.
