OSI Group Purchases

OSI Group based in Aurora, Illinois has made purchases in 2016 to expand its business. These purchases include Baho Food, a Tyson facility in Chicago, and Fragship Food Group. These additions to the OSI Group will help benefit their business model by providing more production resources and new customers.

Baho Food is one of the major purchases the OSI Group made in 2016. Baho Food is a manufacturer that makes deli meats, and snack foods. David G. McDonald President and chief operating officer of OSI Group stated “Adding Baho Food to our OSI Europe business gives OSI a broader presence in Europe”, meaning a greater market share. Baho Food has five subsidiaries that are located in Germany and the Netherlands. They are Gelderland Frischwaren, Vital Convenience, Henri van de Bilt, Bakx Foods, and Q Smart Life. Baho Food’s current managing director, John Balvers and his staff will remain part of the company. The financial terms for the purchase were not released to the public.

Another purchase OSI Group made was Flagship Europe from Fragship Food Group – based in Denver, Colorado. Fragship Europe is a supplier of frozen poultry, pies, mayonnaise, sauces, and dressings to the United Kingdom. President of OSI Group David McDonard has stated “Adding Flagship to our OSI Europe business gives OSI a broader presence in Europe”, meaning more expansion into the European market. He also states “The company’s portfolio of products and brands complements OSI’s current processing strengths while broadening our capabilities to best serve the evolving needs of our customers”. Translation: this purchase gives us more products to sell and more customers to sell the products to.

Yet another purchase made in 2016 was of a Tyson food processing and storage facility in Chicago. Tyson operated the plant for its prepared foods business. In November of 2015 Tyson announced it would close the plant to improve the company’s efficiency. The former workload of the plant was moved to their other plants. OSI Group has not revealed what type of products would be made at the new facility. Financial details for the purchase were also not released to the public.

Nathaniel Ru Keeps Innovation Front and Center

Never in the history of eating healthy have there been restaurants in cities where people would stand outside in lines for healthy food options. Nathaniel Ru has cracked the code to eating healthy because he has people that are willing to stand in long lines to acquire some of the warm bowls that are available through Sweetgreen. It is just a matter of time before more people become familiar with his restaurant chain as he expands.

 

Nathaniel Ru is looking for an opportunity to expand because investors want a piece of the pie and they are giving him a chance to grow and make Sweetgreen even more visible. After investors were willing to put up close to $100 million in venture capitalism money it became obvious that Nathaniel Ru had a success on his hands. The next thing that he would have to do is figure out exactly how he would stay innovative when people on the east and west coast we’re already familiar with Sweetgreen. He knew that bringing new restaurants to the South would be something that would be an expansion of the novelty that he created on the east and west coast, but he still had to find a way to captivate people in places where Sweetgreen was already established. Nathaniel Ru is never short of innovation, and it appears that the places where he already established Sweetgreen are also getting an upgrade.

 

There has been talk of the cashless restaurant that Nathaniel Rue has been working on for Sweetgreen. He has already implemented this in a couple of his restaurant chains, and he appears to be interested in taking the Sweetgreen cashless restaurant forward to more stores. This is an innovative concept, but it is definitely something that is needed in metropolitan cities. With the cashless restaurant Nathaniel Ru is already on his way to making his restaurant chains much more successful.

End Citizens United Raises $4 mil in Three Months

End Citizens United is a political group of over three million democrats fighting for political reform. In a new national poll, approximately 61% of the American people agree that there should be an independent investigation into Russia’s ties in the 2016 presidential election. Not only that, the majority of pollers disagreed with Trump’s firing of FBI Director Comey. Trump’s approval rating is at an all-time record setting low, with 56% disapproving and only 39% approving. This is the lowest approval rating ever seen by the polling company PPP.

Due to these facts, End Citizens United along with Every Voice has launched a new campaign called Independent Investigation Now. The goal of the campaign is to get the attention of senators and put pressure on them to support an independent investigation. We as a people need to know if there was collusion with Russia by President Trump or his Administration.

Tiffany Muller, president and executive director of End Citizens United, talked about how Americans are losing trust in our Nation. Her comment strikes a chord of truth, especially in the wake of these newest poll results.

Muller also commented on Comey’s firing, saying that by firing the head of the investigation, President Trump has directly threatened our democracy. Her words reiterate what we all feel: an unsettling concern about the leadership quality in our nation. Muller did make it clear that End Citizens United would continue is campaigns and keep up the fight for truth and justice within our political system.

It is obvious that End Citizens United is not going to let this go, and they have been taking every possible opportunity to get closer to the truth. Their new campaign Independent Investigation Now will not hold back either. They will use paid advertising, polls, grassroots movements, and media to make sure that we have an independent investigation.

In its fight for reform, End Citizens United has raised over $4 million dollars in just the first three months of 2017 and is projected to raise $35 million dollars before the 2018 midterm Congress elections. This is a huge leap from the 2016 election collections, which was in the $25 million dollar range.Over 100,000 people contributed at the start of this year, and those numbers are growing with the nation’s disapproval.

The political action committee has also been playing an active role by urging its contributors to donate to Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign. He is the perfect candidate to fill a vacant republican house seat in Georgia. Having a democrat in that seat would greatly benefit the democratic party. With all of these plans in place, End Citizens United is ready to fight for truth and justice for the American people.
