Companies that last a long time do more than just come out with groundbreaking products. It takes a real sustainability strategy to keep a company running through times of successes and failures, and one company that’s understood that is OSI Group. OSI Group is the main supply partner of McDonalds, America’s leading fast food restaurant. The OSI Group McDonalds partnership has tirelessly worked on sustainability strategies from building high quality brands and keeping them relevant to today’s consumers, and keeping things environmentally clean. That’s why they hired Nicole Hoffman-Johnson to be their Chief Sustainability Officer and work with the executive committees on meeting sustainable goals.
Hoffman-Johnson has more than a qualified background in administrative tasks and finance for business.About OSI Group McDonalds partnership has been an accomplishment of decades of work. It actually happened back when OSI Group was still known as Otto & Sons. The name came from a German immigrant from Chicago named Otto Kolschowsky, and he ran a butcher shop that would become the original operating location for the company. His sons would help grow the company as they got older and took over, and after working hard through the Great Depression and World War II, they would meet their soon to be partners, the leaders of McDonalds. McDonalds had started making their beef burgers popular, and with their plan to expand, they wanted a reliable supply partner who could deliver the quality of product they wanted.
Otto & Sons fit their needs perfectly, so in 1955, the deal was finalized that made the OSI Group McDonalds partnership official.The other executives who Hoffman-Johnson works with who also helped grow the OSI Group McDonalds team are Sheldon Lavin and David McDonald. Lavin brought years of finance and expert investment knowledge to the company that he used to help it reach billions of dollars in profits over the years and grow into more than 16 different countries. McDonald came along later from an Iowa farm background and learned the ins and outs of OSI first as an intern, and then he worked his business way through management and became an executive. Both men have been instrumental in making big buyouts for OSI as well as ensuring top safety measures are instituted inside its plants.
