Beefing Up: The OSI Group is Buying Domestic and International

For over a century, the OSI Group has been providing meats to customers. Since their humble beginnings in 1909 as a tiny butcher shop and meat market in Chicago, the OSI Group has been about one thing: meat. Started by Otto Kolshkowsky,the group has since grown into a global powerhouse in the meat industry. With 65 locations in 17 countries across the globe, chances are if you have gone out to eat or have gone grocery shopping, you may have purchased and/or eaten a product from the OSI Group.

Their most recent acquisition overseas in Europe with the acquisition of two companies showed the company’s willingness to expand into Europe and broaden the company’s portfolio. Baho Foods and their subsidiaries in the Netherlands and Germany along with Flagship Europe in the United Kingdom were purchased in August and December of 2016 respectively. Baho Foods now gives OSI Group a reach into 18 different European countries along with a company with over 60 years of experience selling products. With Flagship Europe, OSI Group now has a broader presence in Europe, according to president and COO of OSI Group David McDonald. He continued by saying, “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.”

Elsewhere domestically, the group continues to buy up food processing plants that were near closure. In Chicago, the company purchased a Tyson Foods plant that was close to closure and a loss of 500 jobs in the South Side of the city. With an offer of over $7 million, OSI was able to keep the plant open and also expand their product options at the same time.

From 1955, when they were chosen as the supplier of hamburgers to a start-up restaurant named McDonald’s to now with so many ventures and plants inside and outside the United States, the OSI Group has shown what the American Dream can become. With a worth of close to $3 billion, the group ranks as one of the wealthiest, privately-owned companies in the United States. From those humble beginnings, the OSI Group has really grown their name.

Ricardo Tosto De Oliveira Carvalho Offers Insights On Brazil’s Currency Inflation

Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho is an acclaimed lawyer in Brazil whose practice primarily deals with corporate law, securities law and also labor laws though his law firm has handled several other civil and criminal matters. He’s also an economist who studies where the Brazilian and foreign markets are headed and what any changes in currency value mean. He recently offered his take on the 2015 inflation of the Brazilian Real and what it means at Dino news and explained how Brazil could come out on top in this situation.

One thing Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho attributed some of the recent Brazilian Real inflation to was an increase in imported goods to Brazil in recent years because it’s brought an increase in prices and an even stronger US dollar to contend with. He believes one of the keys to returning to a strong real was decreasing the deficit in exporting, and also paying attention to the situation in Europe. He also asserts that it will be up to the Brazilian Economic Minister Joaqim Levy and economic policies triggered by the Brazilian congressional houses to help stabilize currency.

Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho partnered in the founding of Leite, Tosto e Barros Advogados in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Prior to that he studied law at MacKenzie Presbyterian University and completed his legal training at the Armando Álvares Penteado Foundation.

Bob Reina, From Police Officer To Video Email Entrepreneur

Creating a video communications platform came to Talk Fusion’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Bob Reina through frustration. He was in the middle of touring a North Carolina property and wanted to share the moment with his family. His efforts were rebuffed by the America Online technical capability. Immediately Reina sprung into action, telephoning a buddy with an IT background for help. As they often say, “the rest is history,” because a company was born.

 

Talk Fusion is the first of its kind video email platform, but there’s a unique twist to its development and distribution. Talk Fusion is built around a network marketing concept of sharing with others. Those others happen to be close friends and family members, what’s deemed as, “warm contacts.” People that you know well enough to talk daily privately. Bob Reina felt that it was the only way to go after experiencing his own rocky ride with various network marketing companies. He loved the control, but was disappointed with his MLM failures. Those failures lead to Talk Fusion becoming a direct selling network.

 

Not being able to send a video clip back home prompted Bob Reina to start his own business. The friend he contacted, Dr. Jonathan Chen helped him make it a viable product. The company now markets other video products, including a video chat, video newsletters and live meetings. Bob Reina feels that he’s not just offering a product, he’s changing lives.

 

Bob Reina travels promoting Talk Fusion all around the world, and helping associates build their businesses. He and Chen are in development to create Talk Fusion University, a video school designed to help build stronger entrepreneurial skills. In 2011, Talk Fusion had an estimated annual revenue of $100 million. Reina was a police officer, on the verge of career burnout when he first tried network marketing. His failures in the industry drove him to find a company that did what it promised (https://www.facebook.com/TalkFusion/videos/2963037773434/). In the beginning, Bob had some concerns about leaving a steady paycheck behind for the unknown. But his doubts were quickly quieted by his success.

Clay Siegall is major force in application of precision medicine to cancer

One of the most important trends in medical developments over the last 30 years has been that of precision medicine. Precision medicine promises to bring the ability of technology, such as means of targeting diseases at the molecular level and the use of genomic sequencing to directly target disease organisms, to almost all disease processes that exist.

Nowhere is this more promising than in the area of cancer research. Since the 1990s, so-called targeted cancer therapies have been all the rave within the cancer research space. Among the biggest names in targeted cancer therapy development, one man stands out. Clay Siegall has been at the forefront of the development of various types of targeted cancer therapy since his days as a senior researcher at pharmaceutical giant Bristol-Myers Squibb. There, Dr. Siegall led a team of researchers that first synthesized a highly innovative form of targeted cancer therapy known as antibody drug conjugates. These are a class of drugs that use synthetic human antibodies as a means to deliver extremely lethal cytotoxins directly to the site of malignant tissues, thereby completely circumventing the need to release large amounts of dangerous poisons into the bloodstream. This has the promise of completely eliminating the horrific side effects long associated with traditional chemotherapy.

In 1998, Dr. Siegall left Bristol-Myers Squibb and founded his own company, Seattle Genetics. The firm is dedicated solely to the production and development of antibody drug conjugates. The company had its first fully FDA-approved drug sanctioned by that organization in 2011. ADCetris is approved for treatment of refractory non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a potentially fatal form of cancer does affects up to 500,000 people at any given time in the United States.

Under Dr. Siegall’s leadership, the company has also continued to develop many other drugs to treat different forms of cancer. Dr. Siegall believes that the firm will receive further FDA approval on up to a dozen new drugs or the next five years, waiting to the potential widespread acceptance of antibody drug conjugates in the cancer treatment marketplace.

Dr. Clay Siegall has also overseen the leasing out of many forms of intellectual property involved the synthesis of antibody drug conjugates.

Clay Siegall grows Seattle Genetics from nothing into dominant biotech firm

Over the last 20 years, Seattle Genetics has become one of the leading biotech firms in the United States. After having been founded in 1998 by its famous co-founder, Clay Siegall, the firm has grown from just a few staff members into one of the leading producers of antibody drug conjugates in the country today. This remarkable transformation has been largely attributable to Dr. Siegall’s strong leadership and sagacious vision, leading the company on to become the first biotech firm to get an FDA-approved antibody drug conjugate to market.

But it wasn’t always an easy road. After leaving Bristol-Myers Squibb as a senior researcher, Dr. Siegall decided to strike out on his own, founding Seattle Genetics as a means to focus solely on the creation of new antibody drug conjugates. While working at Bristol-Myers Squibb, Dr. Siegall had led a team that was doing revolutionary work in the development of antibody drug conjugates and the means by which they can be created. But he felt that he was not being granted enough leeway and a large enough budget to continue making serious inroads into this exciting new line of cancer treatment.

For this reason, he decided to found Seattle Genetics. But the first few years were not easy. With only a couple million dollars in venture capital, the firm quickly began running through all of its operating budget. By 2001, the company had reached a point where it needed to make a decision. Either more capital would need to be raised or the company would need to be shut down.

Dr. Clay Siegall rose to the occasion. By assembling one of the best legal teams in the business, he was able to eventually list the company on the New York stock exchange. This represented one of the most successful IPOs of a biotech firm in the history of the markets. Raising over $1.2 billion, Seattle Genetics suddenly found itself with sufficient capital to continue carrying out research and development efforts well into the future.

By 2011, the company had received full FDA approval on its antibody drug conjugate called ADCetris. This was the first fully approved antibody drug conjugate in history, resulting in saving thousands of lives and proving the concept of antibody drug conjugates in general.
