Jeunesse Global continues rapid expansion throughout East Asia

Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis are not widely known outside of direct-selling circles. But within the North American direct-selling industry, they are legendary. Ray and Lewis are the founders of many of the most successful companies to ever operate within the industry. And they have been continuously pursuing their entrepreneurial dreams since the 1960s.


But it has been their latest enterprise, Jeunesse Global, that has really made waves. Ray and Lewis decided back in 2009 that they finally wanted to try the retired life. The couple had been working, nonstop, for nearly five decades. They wanted to enjoy the immense fruits of their labors, spending more time with their grandkids and each other while doing nothing in particular with their time.


However, the innately driven duo quickly realized that they were not cut out for the boredom of retired life. Within just a few weeks of experiencing the ennui and lack of purpose that comes with retirement, they started talking about ideas for their next business. Both Ray and Lewis had spent considerable time travelling and doing business throughout East Asia. They knew that many of the countries there had been stifled by the oppressive jackboot of communism, never reaching anything close to their true economic potential. At the same time, many of those countries, like China and Vietnam, had started opening up to freer trade policies. Ray and Lewis saw this as being a golden opportunity to get in on the ground level of what was about to be one of the biggest explosions of human capital that the world had ever seen.


This bet of investing heavily in and concentrating on East Asia proved to be a good one. Within a few years of operation, Jeunesse Global was growing at breakneck speed. And much of this new growth was coming from the company’s East Asian markets. At the same time, Jeunesse began focusing its product development efforts on things that would go over well throughout those oriental markets. This proved to be one of the most perspicacious plays of any business in recent history. As a result, Jeunesse has reaped the benefits.

OSI Food Solutions Are Raising Food Production By Expanding

There is no doubt that OSI Food Solutions are among the leading quality meat products suppliers in the entire world. OSI deals with many meat products that include Chicken, Sausage, Pork, Beef, and Hot dogs.

The OSI distributor in the United States is the biggest company that’s privately owned and it’s called, “OSI Industries, LLC,” and it is one of the top 100 Businesses in the USA.

One of the many recent developments that have been taking place at OSI Food Solutions, had taken place in Chicago where a Tyson Food group was purchased, which is a plant that produces chicken.

And they didn’t stop there. To satisfy their desire to expand, OSI purchased another giant meat products producer, Baho Foods in Netherlands. OSI expected to draw the company closer to being the biggest firm of its kind by expanding the asset base the company has, which will also work out well for OSI as it will increase the foothold they have on Europe.

Another company that OSI Food Solutions bought out was in the UK called Flagship Europe, a food supply business with franchises in 17 countries. After the purchase in 2017, they changed the business’s name to, Creative Foods Europe.

In its facility located in Toledo, OSI took the liberty of investing a whopping sum of €17 million to raise the processed chicken’s production capacity to 24,000 tons yearly from 12,000 tons. This brought OSI Food Solutions plant quality meats production capacity up to over 45,000 tons.

The company doesn’t enjoy all of the benefits alone since such an expansion would require more food production lines and operations of the business. Therefore, it would mean more job openings to add to the existing large number of employees they already have. One added position that was recently created is the environmental risk product development manager, which they will also need to hire.

In 2016 it all paid off when OSI Food Solutions, in the UK was awarded the Globe of Honor by the British Safety Council in recognition of their efforts in management and environmental risks. They were among 18 total corporations to receive this award. To achieve this award was a great honor since businesses needed to earn at least five stars in the British Council’s Environmental Audit for the past year. The award recognized the culture of OSI and the expertise in management they portray.

OSI Group expands its food production capacity

OSI Food Solutions Spain plant has added its production-line to boost its production of chicken products. The Spain plant was expanded at the cost of 17 million euros and is located in Toledo. The production of chicken is expected to double after the expansion of the plant. Before the expansion, the plant was producing 12,000 tons of chicken products. The expansion of this plant has added the total output of the OSI Group. It is estimated that the company will have a total output of over 45,000 tons of chicken, pork and beef products produced annually. The expansion is also expected to benefit not only the company but also the people through the creation of more job opportunities. The expansion will see the company add 320 more workers to the 140 who were already working in the plant.

The expansion was necessitated by a study that showed that demand for chicken products in Spain and Portugal was going up. According to an official of the OSI Group in Spain, the demand for chicken products in these two countries had gone up by eight percent in just the three years he has been in power. OSI Group is preparing itself to deal with the expansion that is coming up. To remain as the top company globally, they must fill in all the gaps left by an increase in demand.

In the new addition, OSI Group added 22,600 square feet of space. Part of the areas they expanded to include shipping and receiving, storage, cooling rooms and hot water among others. The company has also added another testing kitchen for improving its products. According to the chief operating officer of the company, David McDonald, the expansion is meant to make the company grow with the changes in the industry. As the COO of the OSI group, he is happy with the progress that was being made especially in adding the job opportunities. Sheldon Lavin is the CEO of the company and has also played a significant role in the growth of the company.

OSI Group has been in expansion mode for quite some time now. In the local U.S market, they acquired one of the largest food production plants formerly owned by Tyson Foods. Another followed the acquisition in Europe in 2016. OSI Group acquired Baho Foods, a Dutch food company and Flagship Europe which has now been renamed “Creative Foods.” OSI Group now has a huge presence in Europe which forms a large basket of the food market.
