OSI Group Adds To It’s Chicken Output In Toledo, Spain

The European markets, especially in Spain look good for meat sales which is why OSI Group has added to a poultry meat production plant in the region. This plant in Toledo, Spain was previously producing about 12,000 tons in chicken products, but with expanded space and upgraded technology they will now be producing around 24,000 tons. The overall output of the plant is 45,000 tons in meat products, and this investment of 17 million euros by OSI Spain is in response to customer demands for chicken which have grown over 6℅ in the last year. OSI Group President David McDonald said the expansion was a brilliant move to better serve customers in the region and build the company’s food portfolio.

OSI began in 1909 as a butcher shop that became a family-run meat business in Chicago known as Otto & Sons. The Kolschowsky family who ran the business knew how to create customized finished meat products that restaurant owners could have prepared quickly for customers. Their fine quality was noticed by Ray Kroc, a businessman who bought McDonald’s and wanted Otto & Sons to be the the meat provider for his planned restaurant chains. The agreement both parties entered into turned out to be the catalyst for Otto & Sons to take their business across the nation and around the world. But the person who really made this happen was former financial analyst Sheldon Lavin who turned the company’s loans into profitable production centers and started buying outlets overseas that became strategic distribution centers.

The company changed its name to OSI Group in 1975 and in the next 40 plus years moved into 17 countries and became the 10th largest meat processing company in the world. But despite their huge size, they have sought to avoid the usual norms most corporations are known for. Lavin and McDonald believe in addressing employees personally and letting them come to their doors when they have suggestions or concerns. OSI Group is also welcoming to new employees who become part of the team after a major acquisition is made. In many cases OSI looks to keep most things about an acquired company intact since they know best how to serve their customers. OSI is also safety and environmentally conscious about how they run their facilities. They also have joined with their McDonald’s partners to give back to their communities through the Ronald McDonald House Charities and more

Ryan Seacrest Does It All and Makes It Look Easy

Ryan Seacrest became a familiar face in show business by hosting American Idol, but he didn’t stop there. He has been adding successful ventures to his plate including stepping behind the scenes to produce popular television shows like “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and “American Idol,” hosting a nationally syndicated radio show, starting a clothing and skin care line and starting a charity called the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.

Seacrest’s most recent venture involved a significant move from the west to east coast to co host “Live” with Kelly Ripa. The lingering question considering Seacrest’s growing list of significant undertakings is “how does he do it?” In a nutshell, Seacrest keeps on top of his many ventures with a disciplined and balanced schedule. He starts his mornings by waking up to an alarm and squeezing in a shower and shave, but makes sure not to sacrifice his physical and social needs in the hustle of everyday life. Seacrest said in an interview from the New York Times that earlier in his career it was tempting for him to feel guilty for making time for a workout, but now realizes the release of exercise is essential. He will even bring a trainer when traveling so as not to drop his routine.

Ryan Seacrest has learned to segment his day and his week so that he has time set aside for everything he needs to accomplish and he isn’t overrun by emails and demands. He said that this took a lot of self discipline, and fortunately means he has time left over on weekends to indulge in good company, good food, and good wine. He describes himself as a foodie and ensures he has some time to enjoy the pleasures of life while pursuing success. He’s also learned to put the phone down from time to time, especially on vacation, in order to rest and relax.

When Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) looks at what he hopes to achieve in life he thinks of the late Dick Clark who he worked with a few years before his death. He remembers watching Clark as a child and admiring the sense of ease he conveyed. Clark told him that when you make it look easy you are doing it well.

Here’s Ryan’s video that you must watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yG38b6MIl4

Sahm Adrangi has researched East Kodak Company whose shares are high at the moment. This company has developed KodakOne and KodakCoin which seems not to benefit their shareholders. Sahm Adrangi is certain that the shares value of the company will go down as the company is working with companies with dubious backgrounds.

The Joe Arpaio, Larkin and Lacey Saga

Presidential pardons in the United States are often dubious. Depending on which side of the political divide one subscribes to, these pardons spark heated social debate. President Trump recently issued his first Executive pardon.

The recipient was the former notorious, toughest Maricopa County sheriff, Joe Arpaio. It is Joe Arpaio that had unlawfully imprisoned the proprietors of Village Voice; Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: https://michael-lacey.com/ and http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/

Joe Arpaio

About a decade ago, Joe Arpaio reinforced by Maricopa County Selective Enforcement Unit agents, invaded two residential homes in Phoenix, Arizona. It was not just coincidental or an oversight from the sheriff; as the homes belonged to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

Joe Arpaio ordered his agents to drag the two out of their homes and put them behind bars. They were held under suspicion of disclosing technicalities regarding a grand-jury probe.

Village Voice Media

At the time, Larkin and Lacey were actively muddled in the Village Voice Media publication. Lacey was the executive editor and Larkin was in charge of advertising. The paper had gained audience and popularity because of its hard-hitting stance against political issues.

On the day of their arrest, they had published an article revealing details about an on-going grand jury investigation on Phoenix New Times. The paper was associated with Voice Media. Larkin and Lacey were not in the light, of the fact that they were under investigation by the same jury.

Larkin & Lacey vs Arpaio

The Arizona Sheriff was increasingly frustrated by Village Voice coverage regarding his brutal law enforcement techniques. Larkin & Lacey were on the forefront in protesting against his department. Arpaio was especially discriminative against Latino immigrants.

It was at the peak of Arpios brutality against women and inmates of Latino origin that Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey marshaled against the Arizona sheriff. They gathered evidence against Arpios and started leaking it to the public via their publication.

They published information exposing Arpaio’s actions several times. This would eventually lead to their arrest. They were released twenty-four days later following public demand. Consequently, they sued the Sheriff and settled for 3.7 million United States Dollars.

Trump Factor

Arpaio was a pro-Trump from the beginning of times. As early as when Trump was questioning Obama’s birth certificate.

The Sheriff had been pushed to a tight corner after he was charged with contempt of court just after losing his re-election bid.

Arpaio’s endorsement of Trump at the early stages when most people doubted Trump got him into good books with Trump. He capitalized on these and rode all the way to Presidential pardon.

Larkin & Lacey

Jim Larkin teamed up Michael Lacey after they had both quit their studies at Arizona State University. Together they established Phoenix New Times as a campus weekly.

Phoenix New Times sought to tell the alternative truth regarding antiwar protests staged by students.

The two were committed to producing deep and exclusive investigative reports. Village Voice Media was consequently born.

By 2012 when they sold Village Voice Media, the publication had attracted nine million readers and honored with numerous journalistic awards like the Pulitzer Prize.

Aloha Construction Article #4

Having good ethics is something that we all should strive to obtain. Ethics is simply having strict and personal honesty. The notion is easy to understand, but most people in today’s society tend to lack this vital component of life. For those who own businesses, having good ethics will go a long way and Aloha Construction demonstrates this to the fullest. This particular general contractor has a long list of happy clients, and it has a resume of success. The family-owned business is located in Lake Zurich, Illinois, and it has been providing top-notch services since 2008.

Last year, Aloha Construction was honored with the affluent Torch Award for its brilliant ethical behavior. The Torch Award is a sought-after type of award that most companies dream of receiving. It solidifies your company’s behavior in more ways than one. The Torch Award honors those who demonstrates high standards, who demonstrates leadership and who demonstrates social responsibility. Aloha Construction was a clear-cut winner amongst a field of great competitors. The nominated companies of this subject goes through a strict screening process, and they’re judged by an independent panel. This specific award will surely not be presented to the average fly-by-night kind of business thanks to its thorough screening process. Aloha Construction is being led by its founder Dave Farbaky. Farbaky is always involved within his very own community in a number of ways. His very own charitable organization, the Farbaky Foundation, does many wonderful things like providing tickets to Chicago Bulls games and by donating brand new toys to thousands of kids in the area.

As you can see, Aloha Construction definitely practices what it preaches. It would be extremely hard trying to find a more productive general contractor than this, but this is only a small percentage of its wonderful attributes.

Doctor Or Entrepreneur? Dr. Mark McKenna Is Combing Both For An Innovative Take On Healthy Living

Dr. Mark McKenna has faced many setbacks over the course of his career, mostly due to unfortunate circumstances, but he his still come out on top as one of the most recognized doctors and businessmen in the country today. This is because Mark has a special talent for business, perfectly combining his knowledge of medicine to create unique and successful businesses. Some have asked Dr. Mark McKenna why he started out with medicine only to switch to business. According to Mark, he has interest in the medical field, especially since it is also his father’s profession, but it doesn’t allow for the level of success it did in the past.

Mark McKenna wanted more than what the medical field alone had to offer, but he did not make this decision until he was in medical school. Once he finally graduated, Mark worked at his father’s practice while he built up his funds until he could start up a company of his own. He finally got his start in 1999 with a real estate company, which managed to become one of the leading real estates in New Orleans by 2005. Katrina hit New Orleans this year, and Mark, unfortunately, lost his company. He managed to recoup by flipping properties in New Orleans for a while, before moving to Atlanta.

Dr. Mark McKenna is currently pushing the growth of his latest company, OVME. With locations in Nashville and Atlanta, OVME is quickly becoming one of the most popular aesthetic wellness business in the country. This is partly because there is not much competition in Mark’s particular market. OVME allows Mark’s clients to use an app to search a database of products and treatments that can then be ordered and delivered right to their hands wherever they are. Doctors stand at the ready to help customers through OVME’s app and offer their own products as freelancers. Dr. Mark McKenna hopes to expand OVME in more cities over the next few years.

Jeunesse Global fights oxidative stress with Reserve

Medical science has long known that red wine offers real, substantive protection against heart disease and other disease entities related to the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. Although scientists were puzzled as to why habitual wine drinkers were often significantly healthier than their teetotalling peers, today, researchers have established a few key ingredients in red wine that are largely responsible for the protective benefits of this miraculous beverage.

One of the key ingredients that have been isolated from red wine and studied as a means of conferring many of the benefits of the drink is known as resveratrol. Until now, it has been difficult for mainstream consumers to get ahold of products that offer a means of palatably consuming this important health-boosting substance. But with Reserve, the first resveratrol-containing health drink offered by Jeunesse Global, people all across the globe can tap into the salutary effects of red wine consumption without having to assume the attendant risks that come with imbibing alcohol.

Reserve also contains a number of other isolates from red wine as well as juices from a plethora of so-called superfruits. These include pomegranate, dark cherry, concord grape and acai. Reserve also contains therapeutically active ingredients, including aloe vera and green tea.

Refreshing waves of flavor filled with antioxidants. 🌊🍇 #Reserve #Jeunesse

A post shared by Jeunesse (@jeunessehq) on

But the most powerful benefit of Reserve may be that it allows people to consume the same ingredients that give wine its health-promoting effects without exposing them to the considerable damage that can be caused by alcohol. Even though doctors know that drinking two glasses of wine each day can significantly lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and peripheral artery disease, most major medical associations still shy away from recommending that those who do not currently drink wine begin doing so.

This is because the risks associated with alcohol consumption are so severe that, taken in the aggregate, they outweigh the powerful benefits of moderate red wine consumption. With Reserve, Jeunesse Global has found a way to keep the benefits while reducing the costs to zero.

Reserve is just one example of the many innovative products being developed by Jeunesse Global, which is quickly making a name for itself as a global leader in health and beauty.

OSI Food Solutions Amps Up Chicken Production After Tyson Plant Buyout

OSI Food Solutions continues to expand, as evidenced by the recent purchase of a Chicago area Tyson manufacturing facility. According to Cook County Records, the Tyson Foods plant was bought for $7.4 million. While the money may help Tyson restructure its organization, the sale of the plant may have done more for the people and economy of Chicago.

Before news of the deal was made public, Tyson Foods had reported that they would be forced to close the plant. The shutdown would have meant putting 480 people out of work and the organization was already beginning to trim its belt. At the time OSI Food Solutions took possession of the plant, there were still 250 employees on staff. Instead of letting them go, OSI stated that each person would be offered a job.

The former Tyson plant is near another OSI facility, which is what drew the company’s interest. The new acquisition will be used to support the existing plant and help promote future growth. In a statement, Kevin Scott, who is the senior executive V.P. for OSI North America, said the company’s customer base is continuing to evolve. As such, the new plant will help meet increased demands more efficiently.

OSI Food Solutions Boosts Chicken Manufacturing

Elsewhere, OSI is amping up chicken processing to meet higher demands. In Toledo, Spain, the corporation installed a high capacity production line, costing over €17 million, so chicken products could be processed faster. The improvement will double the 12,000 tons of chicken previously processed at the plant each year.

The upgrade will bring the total production of meat products, consisting of pork and beef, as well as chicken, up to an annual total of 45,000 tons. Additionally, the new line has created 20 jobs, bringing the workforce for that one plant up to 160 people.

José María del Río, who serves as the OSI Spain managing director, revealed that chicken demand is up in Spain and in Portugal. As a result, the company needs to increase production to meet that higher demand. Over the last ten years, there’s been an average increase of 6% in the demand for chicken products. In the last three years, that ratio has risen by 8% for the region.

As OSI Food Solutions grows to meet increased customer demands, their facilities may see even further upgrades to existing production technology. The higher demand may be the result of people looking for healthier eating options or it may just be a response to a growing population. In any case, OSI is eager to meet the needs of its global customer base.

Is OSI Group A Top 100 Company

Operating a business can be very challenging as well as very frustrating at times. On many occasions, life will definitely throw you a few curb balls here and there. When it comes to custom-food production, there are a number of high-quality food providers to choose from. These food providers are located all over the world, but the United States is home to one of the leaders. OSI Group is the food provider of choice for the majority of the world’s population. This company can reach just about any point-of-interest on the map thanks to its many facilities. OSI Group is a mega company in a sense because it has more than 20,000 employees. On top of that, the company has 65 state-of-the-art facilities that are located in 17 different countries.

Ever since its birth in 1909, this phenomenal wholesale-food provider has been growing. This growth comes in the form of capability, knowledge and physical size. Back in the day it was known as being a small meat market. This meat market was founded by a German immigrant named Otto Kolschowski. Though being rather small, the family-owned and operated business produced some of the best tasting meats, and these meats put it on the map. Forbes listed OSI Group as the nation’s 136th largest private company in 2011. Yes, being listed by Forbes is a big deal, and it says a lot. Thanks to its consistent growth the company jumped to the 58th position by 2014.

This company meets and exceeds all expectations. In 2016, OSI Group won the exclusive Globe of Honour Award for its excellence in environmental management. OSI’s Kelly Grimwood was presented with the award by the British Safety Council. The event took place in London at the prestigious Drapers’ Hall. OSI Group has many more reasons for being a top 100 company and this only scratches the surface.
