The meat processing industry has become highly competitive in the last few years as many new companies have entered the market to grab the biggest share of growing industry. However, one of the companies that continue to dominate the market without any immediate rival is OSI Industries. The company has been around since the 1970s and has tremendous experience in the fresh meat processing sector. The company apart from processing raw meat for supply in restaurants and fast food chains also manufactures vegetable products, baked products, sauces, and other ready to eat items.

Sheldon Lavin is the CEO and Chairman of the company and has contributed in many ways to its growth. Sheldon Lavin started career in the finance and banking industry, and he also graduated in business and finance, but later on due to the stroke of fate, ended up heading the OSI Industries. Actually, during his initial years when he was finance and investment executive, he was the one point contact for the family that ran Otto and Sons, a meat processing firm. Sheldon Lavin processed business loans and overdraft for them for years, and when the company applied for more loans, the financing firm asked Sheldon Lavin to become one of the partners at Otto and Sons. Even though he was resistant at first, due to his close ties with the owners of Otto and Sons, he agreed. It is how he became associated with Otto and Sons, which later was renamed to become OSI Industries.

Sheldon Lavin slowly but steadily climbed ladder of success at OSI Industries due to his business and leadership skills. Sheldon Lavin played a significant role in taking the OSI Industries global and its expansion drive across the world, which has led to the company having 70 manufacturing units dotted across the globe with the workforce of 20,000 employees. Millions of other people are indirectly employed or dependent upon the OSI Industries for their income across the globe.
