OSI Food Solutions doubles chicken production

OSI Food Solutions has a production plant in Spain. The plant is mainly used for the production of meat products that are primarily supplied to Spain and Portugal. The main products from this plant include beef, pork, and chicken. In recent times, the food company has been taking its expansion operations to another level with a lot of attention going to expanding operations outside the United States. It is in the aim of increasing production activity that this company has come up with a plan that will see the production of chicken products double. The company has added a new production line that has the capacity to produce 24,000 tons of chicken products every year. Before the expansion, it could only produce 12,000 tons of products.

After the expansion, OSI Food Solutions is now in a position to produce over 45,000 tons of meat products from this plant. There is good news to the local community-based in Toledo, Spain as 20 new job opportunities have been created in this company. The new increase has pushed the number of employees in the plant to 160. Among the new positions is that of the product development manager. This position is mandated with the role of improving the products portfolio of the company.

According to the managing director of OSI Food Solutions in this region, the expansion was necessitated by an increase in demand for chicken products. In the past one decade, there has been a consistent increase by six percent every year. In the past three years, there has been a significant shift with demand rising to eight percent. The increase has pushed the company to improve its production capacity to meet the needs of the market. The company expects the trend to maintain in coming years, a factor that will push the company to produce more.

The expansion of the company includes additional 22,600 square feet. The expansion consists of a product development kitchen that will be used to test new products as well as testing the needs of the customers. After the increase, almost every part of the plant has recorded some improvement. OSI Food Solutions is ready to change the food production industry as indicated by its recent moves.

Efforts that Serge Belamant is making to protect the Patent to the Blockchain Technology that He Invented

Everyone agrees with the fact that Blockchain technology is the next big thing in the world of technology. Currently, a vast number of bank transactions and other financial transactions taking place online are based on this technology. Most people probably heard about the technology because of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and the others, but the reality is that the technology has been there since the ‘80s. Serge Belamant is one of the few people who was involved in the creation of the technology behind Blockchain. He has been in court seeking to get legal rights over the intellectual property that he created.

Serge Belamant was born in France; he spent part of his childhood in France before his family moved to South Africa. He studied at the University of Witwatersrand before he moved to the UK. He was one of the founders of Net1, one of the most successful technology companies in the creation of products based on Blockchain technology. Serge Belamant is a man who has been through a lot. He started Net1 as a one-person show, but when the company expanded, he had to bring other people on board. Not everyone is pleased with the fact that after working 27 years for a company that was both his dream and passion, he has had to let it go.

When asked how he feels about the fact that he has parted ways with the rest of the group, Serge states that he has learned that in life, not everything will have to go according to plan. He said that when he was the boss, people treated him with that respect, but now that he has left, it has become a little different. He, however, states that most of the times, it is the people who work the hardest to bring technology to the world that does not get the recognition they deserve for it.

Serge Belamant believes that the future is Blockchain technology. He adds that even though at present, it may not seem like there will be much of a future for him in the company, he will leave his mark in the world.

OSI Group History and New Sustainability Initiatives

The 63rd largest private company on Forbes list of 2018, with just over $6 billion in revenue, is the meat processing holding company OSI Group. The group got its name from “Otto and Sons” originally: a few German immigrants living in Chicago who processed and sold meats. Now located in Aurora, Illinois, the company has gained much of its growth from becoming one of McDonalds’ four main suppliers. Being that McDonald’s’ first store was opened in Des Plaines, Illinois (only 40 minutes away from Chicago), its no wonder that Otto and Sons were chosen as a supplier for the food giant.

As McDonalds grew, so did Otto and Sons. Eventually they outgrew their name and needed something more professional, so they went with OSI which is the shortened version of Otto and Sons, Incorporated. OSI group not only now serves the entirety of America but it also serves the world. With 5,000 locations worldwide, OSI Group now serves Europe and Asia. In Europe, OSI was able to acquire the Baho group out of the Netherlands in addition to the Creative Foods Europe group in order to fulfill McDonalds and other food stores’ needs in the region. And more recently in Asia, CEO Sheldon Lavin has worked with his team to source local Taiwanese partnerships which better serve the needs of the Chinese and greater Asian markets through a new company called OSI Asia.

OSI Group is the largest foods producer in the world, and Mr. Lavin has won numerous awards including the North American Meat Institute’s Environmental Award and the California Green Business Award. With the addition of Nicole Johnson-Hoffman in 2017, the company’s push to more sustainable means of production has helped OSI Group tremendously. Ms. Johnson-Hoffman is already the VP of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef.

Randal Nardone Accepts The Transfer Of Fortress Investment Group To Soft Bank

Since the foundation of Fortress Investment Group in 1998, Randal Nardone has been able to steer the operations of the company up to the point where the company has experienced maximum success. The organization has been able to become the largest alternative asset investment company in the world in terms of the asset base and the number of customers who associate with the company. However, recent reports indicate that the company will be acquired by a Japanese Investor, Soft Bank.

A significant number of people did not understand why the organization accepted the bid from the foreign investor given that the entity was not experiencing any financial distress and did not need financial support. However, there are various benefits that could have triggered the acceptance of the bid by Randal Nardone and other executive members of the board of the Fortress Investment Group.

One of the main reasons as to why Randal Nardone and other members of the Fortress Investment Group accepted the bid is that the organization did not change its board of directors. The regulatory authority of United States highlighted that the management of the organization had to be maintained for the deal to go through. This means that, despite the acquisition process being complete, the company is still under the control and management of Randal Nardone, Wes Edens, and Peter Briger.

The company received a good offer that any other organization willing to expand its operations could not have resisted. Additionally, the money provided by the Japanese investor was under the control of the management of the company such that it had to decide what to do with the money. Given that the main executive members and founders of the organization owned some shares in the company, there was no need of leaving the company.

Lastly, Randal Nardone could have accepted the bid to sell his company due to the probability and the opportunity of expanding the firm to Asia. The Japanese investor is supposed to create an opportunity where the company will easily move its operations to the Asian region where there are few number of asset management entities.

Sujit Choudhry Talks About How Violating The GDPR Can Be Costly To Businesses

Sujit Choudhry says it is not the location of the company that concerns the EU regulation. It is all about the EU consumer. Any business that works with an EU consumer has to protect them under the GDPR. This directly affects US companies with an EU target market. Under the GDPR any outside company doing business with an EU resident is considered a controller. That is why they must follow the GDPR regulations, get info on (Works.bepress.com).

 

Any Punishment For Violation?

Sujit Choudhry says the GDPR regulations are strict. Global businesses that do not follow the guidelines could face astronomical monetary penalties. A good example is for businesses that fail to report data breaches like loss of personal data or unauthorized access within 72 hours of becoming aware could be fined 10 million euros or 2 percent of global income. The bigger the amount will be charged. Any unlawful transfers of data from EU residents can get fined 20 million euros or 4 percent. The larger amount will be charged. With the GDPR, individual protection includes the ability for consumers to sue for their own rights. Consumers now have more control over their data than they’ve ever had. Sujit Choudhry says the point is to protect the data so nothing can be done with it without consumer consent. The personal data includes any ID numbers, location info, online ID, genetic data and more. Consent can also be withdrawn at any point, which falls under the EU “right to be forgotten” idea, more details on (Crunchbase.com).

 

Right To Be Forgotten Concept

Sujit Choudhry further explains the “right to be forgotten” idea. He says the GDPR did not come up with that. The GDPR is just an expansion of the regulations that were placed in 1995. In those previous regulations “right to be forgotten” was listed, know more updates on iconnectblog.com. Google Spain went on to further define this concept and the GDPR did as well. It has existed for over 20 years. Now the law explains when and how the concept can be used. It also explains the range of data protection and any limitations. The right to be erased now means not absolute and not unrestricted. Google Spain took part in this by adjusting how search engines provide links, see http://www.law.nyu.edu/news/choudhry_award.
