From 12,000 tons of chicken products, the company is now producing 24,000 tons. There will also be an increase in the total production from the plant.

The facility has also been built with a special test kitchen which will be used to create new products depending on the taste and preferences of the people
OSI Food Solutions has built this facility because they want them products to spread to a global audience. This is not the only project that they have executed in recent years especially in Europe. They are on a plan of being the biggest food production company in Europe they have acquired Baho Foods and Flagship Europe as they try to take over control of the food business.

Companies that understand the value of growth and providing invaluable solutions to other companies most likely succeed. The companies that address the most difficult problems in various industries are also the ones whose longevity of operations is sustained and even expanded. One example of such company today that offers valuable services to its clients is NGP VAN, and its real value comes in the form of helping organizations with their campaigns and fundraising programs using state-of-the-art technology.
In a recent blog post from NGP VAN’s website, it is revealed that one powerful tool from NGP VAN that helps its clients and the campaigns that it supports is the VoteBuilder platform. This tool is a fantastic addition in improving the already promising tools for any Democratic campaign that will be organized. The good thing about the new tool is that it has the ability to publish events and canvass shifts automatically and without the added costs.
People can also phone banks publicly and get a more transparent system of generating donations. This also gives volunteers the ability to sign themselves with the use of an online form, making it easy for them to do their work in the best way possible. This addition also enables any volunteer to create a fundraising event just by simply checking a checkbox, with no need to use the other main digital tools in NGP VAN’s pipeline. This new tool is indeed giving more people access to what NGP VAN can offer without the technical expertise and knowledge reserved mostly for experts.

Igor Cornelsen is a Brazilian investor who started out in engineering school and quickly switched over to economics. He started working at an investment bank after he finished college and never looked back. Igor quickly established himself in the investment banking world and moved up fast through the ranks. First he became a member of the board of directors after only 4 years of service, and then by year 6 he was the CEO of Multibanco. After Bank of America acquired Mulitbanco, Igor moved on Unibanco for about 7 years, taking advantage of the high inflation rate. He then spent some years working a couple London banks, where he was introduced to working with US dollars. He gained vast investment opportunities in these years. His last move is still his current one. He opened his own investment firm, offering the same services he gained experience working with at the London banks. He puts personal efforts into his firm by working there daily as an investment manager.
Success As An Investment Banker
One trend that really excites Igor Cornelsen is when he is one of the first to spot a market changing trend. What helps him with investments is the speed at which he gets information from Reuters. He doesn’t rely on other investors and analysts to produce an opinion. Advice he would give his younger self is to read instead of listening to other opinions. The key is to look to world as a whole as see how things will be affected. One strategy that has helped Igor grow his business is being the fastest to find out assets depreciated. One failure Igor had as an entrepreneur was closing all the commodities he was short. Instead he was supposed to sell the expensive stuff and keep the cheap the stuff. The only web service Igor really uses is Reuters. He likes them because they just report the news and there is not bias. One thing that Igor likes to live by is to not be influenced by other investors, analysts, or professors. He feels it is better to make up his own mind, reading the facts instead of opinions.
The OSI Industries is a company that was established in the early 1900s by a German immigrant named Otto Kolschowsky. Back then, the company is only a small meat shop, which eventually grew into a prominent family business as they entered into a partnership with the McDonald’s Corporation in the 1950s and the 1960s. The rise of McDonald’s Corporation in the international market became a domino effect for its business partners, and the OSI Industries was one of those companies which have significantly benefited from the success of the fast food restaurant. The OSI opened up their first facilities overseas in Germany and Spain, and it became the company’s stepping stone into becoming a multinational company.
After Otto Kolschowsky and his family sold their shares, the company went under the hands of Sheldon Lavin. The founder of the company knows that the new chapter in the history of the OSI will be handled efficiently by Sheldon Lavin because of his background in the investment sector. He focused on tapping other businesses to become its partner, and he was aggressive in opening up new facilities abroad. His leadership also gave the needed boost for the company, and because of his unique approach in managing the business, the OSI became one of the most profitable companies in the United States, being able to post a sales of more than $6.1 billion in the year 2016.
More overseas facilities started to appear one after another, and a series of ventures with the largest food manufacturers in Latin America, Europe, and Asia made the OSI Industries a global powerhouse in the field of food manufacturing. The OSI Industries expanded into Taiwan in 1987, the Philippines in 1990, and China in 1992. With the rise of China’s economy in the contemporary history, the OSI Industries managed to gain the advantage once again, and they had to invite new businesses to join their growing business empire. Today, the company operates in 17 countries, and they have built 65 facilities that would help in producing high-quality meat and protein products. There are also 20,000 people working for the company in the present.
