Sheldon Lavin – Implementing Strategic Measures to Ensure OSI Industries’ Success

Many companies are operating actively in the meat processing industry, but one of the leading names in this sector is OSI Industries. The company has grown exponentially under the leadership of famous business leader, who is popularly called the tycoon in the meat processing industry, Sheldon Lavin. Sheldon Lavin managed to make Otto and Sons, a family-run meat processing firm into a multinational conglomerate that continues to grow and expand till date. OSI Industries today has 70 manufacturing and distribution units in 17 countries and employs 20,000 employees. Millions of other people are dependent on the supply and distribution chain of the company for their livelihood.

The company has grown exponentially over the years also because Sheldon Lavin was able to manage the business affairs smoothly and helped make some very strategic internal changes that maximized output, and minimized the costs. It assisted in increasing the profits, and the growth that the company witnessed also helped it attract many new clients in the industry. Some of the biggest fast food chains source most of their raw food and meat requirements from OSI Industries. It is also because Sheldon Lavin has implemented some stringent hygiene and quality standards in the company, which ensures that the end product that reaches the customers is nothing less than perfect.

Sheldon Lavin originally started his career in the finance sector, but due to the nature of his job, he came across many middle market companies in the area he operated. He was responsible for approving finance and loans for the companies, and it is how he first came in contact with the Otto and Sons, previous name of the OSI Industries.

The family that ran Otto and Sons were looking for business finance that could help them diversify their product portfolio and invest in marketing, business growth, and expansion. In the next few years, Sheldon Lavin was closely involved with the company and the owners, which eventually landed him in the position of CEO and Chairman of the company. Today, OSI Industries is one of the largest enterprises in the meat processing industry and supplies its products worldwide.

Entrepreneur Jason Hope Talks the Integration Between the Internet of Things and Consumer Goods

The Internet of Things is essentially a network of devices that have chips in them that allow them to send and receive information to and from other devices. The concept has not been quick to catch the public’s attention the way that other technologies such as social networking and communication have but it is an important development that is sure to be more than a trend. In a lot of ways one might say that the Internet of Things has been hiding in plain sight.

One conversation that is somewhat related to the Internet of Things has been taking place in the world of fashion. Fashion insiders have debated whether or not there is a way to integrate technology into fashion in a form that will catch on with consumers. One of the biggest experiments in wearable technology actually did not take place in the fashion industry but in the tech industry. That experiment was a little thing that was known as Google Glass. The first iteration of the smart glasses were a failure in part because they looked somewhat clunky. Even though Google Glass is a work in progress other companies have not given up on integrating clothing into the Internet of Things.

Over on the website The Bro Talk entrepreneur and Internet of Things enthusiast Jason Hope sited one good example of a company that is helping to make athletic wear go high-tech. Hope cited the example of the company Under Armour which, according to his piece, is creating a smart sneaker. The smart sneaker that Under Armour has developed will differ from the standard tennis shoes in that a fitness tracker will be integrated into its design. These shoes will actually be able to record data about health-related metrics as the owner wears them helping to usher in the future where the Internet of Things actually impacts health that Hope has often written about. These devices show that the impact of the Internet of Things will go beyond merely impacting household appliances but will soon be integrated into things that are overlooked parts of our everyday life.
