The true definition of a successful business story is in the biography of OSI Group. It is one of the oldest food processing industries in America. It was established in 1909 as a small retail meat market in Chicago. The current OSI President David McDonald invited Sheldon Lavin as the Chairman and CEO in the 1970s into the company. Since then, the OSI group has never been the same. OSI Group began its operations as a butcher in the neighborhood Chicago, and today it runs in more than 17 countries in the world with more than 65 facilities. The breakthrough came as a result of the high excellence of staff expertise, and highly-skilled, and experienced leadership of the likes of Sheldon who is a finance expert.
Employment roll in the company has hit over 20,000 personnel in active operations. It is based mainly in Greater Chicago areas, The Great Lakes, and The Midwestern US.

The technique involves using nitrogen to freeze food. It is quick and effective. The company invests heavily in research to optimise the sustainability of food production which creates a balance between its suppliers and the market. Sheldon Lavin has received many global prestigious global awards over time on food sustainability like the Global Visionary Award, California Green Business Award, British safety Council Globe of Honor and many more.
