Sheldon Lavin is the CEO of the sprawling business enterprise with a global weight of success behind it known as OSI Group. They have a vast range of expertise in food processing and they also partner with some of the world’s leading retail brands to provide quality food products in many countries throughout the world.
Lavin has enjoyed a wonderful career in business and his skills have helped him steadily grow OSI Group into the powerhouse it is today. His background in financial consulting where he helped companies successfully expand their operations with funding, was instrumental in positioning him to become the owner of OSI Group. His relationship with the previous owners was strong and when they retired from business he was a natural choice to purchase the company.
OSI Group is a thoroughly modern, global enterprise and Lavin has been the driving force behind their vision of sustainability throughout all of their operations. They always demonstrate concern as to how their business activities will impact the world around them and they plan sustainable practices in all facets of their processes. This vision encompasses the people, communities, and local environments where they conduct business and they cultivate positive relationships among all three.
California has some of the strictest environmental laws in the U.S. and OSI Group has thrived there as evidenced by their Riverside facility which received the Green Business Award. This honor highlights companies that practice conservation, develop greater efficiencies and prevent pollution in their facilities.
An efficient lighting system that was installed by the company at the Riverside facility is an example of improvements that were made and led to the award. They also made additional upgrades such as premium efficiency motors, a high-efficiency boiler, and a wastewater reduction plan. OSI Group is a leader among manufacturers that show the way as to how to be productive and practice environmental safety at the same time.
OSI Group has prospered under the leadership of Sheldon Lavin and currently operates more than 65 facilities in 17 countries. They have come a long way from a humble midwestern food processing company and much of that can be attributed to Lavin’s vision which was always of global proportions.
The Global Visionary Award is bestowed by India’s Vision World Academy and Sheldon Lavin was honored in 2016 with this prestigious award. Their international presence and contribution to job growth all over the world has given him this distinct honor.
