Brazilians would agree that starting and operating a business successfully in the country is challenging since there are many obstacles that an individual has to overcome. At the same time, becoming a business professional in Brazil can be rewarding. Also, the lack of venture capital in the country can be pretty discouraging.

Ingenious Innovations By The OSI Group For Effective And Efficient Services, And To Ramp Up Their Production Rate

As of October 2018, Forbes Media ranked OSI Group #63 on their 2018 list of the largest private companies in America. With net revenue of $6.1 Billion, the firm was noted to be having as much as 20,000 employees, all of whom are working on their 65 different facilities, in 17 countries.

As the chief supplier of custom value-added food solution, the firm partners with the best, and first-rate food retailers, and providers of food service to serve their brand’s consumers better.

Under the leadership, and management of its CEO Sheldon Lavin, OSI Group, have made tremendous achievements for the past few years, including the establishment of successful relations with ventures like McDonald’s – the USA, and most recent, 2018, with Turi Foods Pty Ltd., Australia.

Since its establishment as a small butcher shop in 1909, OSI Group has undergone a wide range of transformation, ideally in technological innovation and market strategies, enhancing its growth remarkably. For instance, after the first McDonald’s restaurant was established in 1955, the CEO and its creator, Ray Croc presented an advanced franchise model; Otto & Son’s (predecessor of OSI) were already attached to it, as their provider of fresh ground beef.

After they were selected to be supplying McDonald’s with their product, at first OSI Group were under pressure as the required order was at the time big, for all the different restaurants. Thus they were required to maintain the sustainability of their product, following the production of a consistent, and consumer-driven affordable product, which could be even transported to long-distanced restaurants efficiently. With the invention of the liquid nitrogen cryogenic freezing technology, the OSI was the first to adopt it, and it effectively served as a breakthrough, making their task much easier in storage and transport, and more affordable – hence strengthening their partnership bond much more.

In 1973, Otto and Sons established a facility entirely, and solely dedicated to Serve McDonald’s; with the rest of local restaurants and retail markets catered for by their brand – Glenmark. This two-way production intensively heightened its growth, leading to its transition from Otto & Sons, to OSI industries. Following the development, McDonald’s ramped up its production, enhancing its penetration to the global markets. This followed sprawling of the OSI too, entering into a partnership with states like Spain and Germany.

With the placement of Sheldon Lavin as the CEO of OSI Group, the firm was able to venture in other food industry; a move that led to a significant growth that has continued to thrive, up to this day.

Freedom Checks: Your Piece Of The Oil Industry Profits

There are several individuals who invested in Freedom Checks. They are very happy they did so. These individuals collected payments that were significantly larger than what they would receive from social security. Matt Badiali is the man to thank for spreading the word about Master Limited Partnerships. These are the companies that pay Freedom Checks to their shareholders. This was a particularly good year to invest in MLPs, as the companies paid out a total of $34.6 billion to loyal shareholders. This investment strategy has been overlooked by most of the investing community for so many years and was only used by sophisticated investors.

Now average individuals are aware of the existence of MLPs and can also profit from them. One of the most important reasons for investing in an MLP is the tax treatment you will receive as an investor. MLPs are companies that can avoid paying taxes as part of the US tax code. This same benefit is shared with a company shareholder. Freedom Checks that a shareholder receives are not taxed. A shareholder is only subject to taxation for selling MLP shares at a profit. This tax is still lower than regular income taxes. MLPs may also rise significantly in share price. The US produces more oil than it did in the past and is now recognized as a leading oil producer.

The US imports a lot less oil from the Middle East. As long as domestic oil production continues to increase, MLPs should remain profitable companies. Oil prices should continue o rise as demand rises, which will eventually lead to MLPs trading at higher valuations. Individuals familiar with stock trading will find it easy to invest in MLPs because they trade in the same manner as any common stock. There are no financial restrictions to begin investing. Someone with modest means and a financial account can start collecting Freedom Checks with several dollars. There are over 500 companies that are classified as MLPs and are allowed to issue these special payments to shareholders. Even MLPs involve risk, so it is important for an individual to use proper analysis to pick the appropriate MLP for the financial portfolio.

The Political Chutzpah Of Betsy DeVos

There is no question about it, Trump Administration Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is one interesting individual. When you meet her in person, she can definitely come across as warm and inviting, but ask her political enemies and they will tell you that underneath that gentle veneer lies a political fighter who is every bit as dogged and determined as her boss President Trump. Betsy DeVos has a lot of passions in life, and she is willing to go to great lengths to defend them. One of these ideals would be in the realm of fighting for school choice. Indeed, Secretary DeVos has her own method of running the nation’s schools, and she does not deviate much, if any, from that path.

 

One example of this would be during reports last year of a Trump ruling that rescinded an Obama policy that allowed transgender students the ability to use the bathroom that identified with their chosen gender. DeVos was tasked with meeting with certain education leaders and alerting them to what was coming. Of course, aides indicated that Secretary DeVos had privately been against the move. However, if she showed any indication of there being a rift in the Trump Administration she definitely could have won an Oscar. Not only was she was a willing public participant in the announcement of the new policy, but she also told a committee called the Conservative Political Action Conference that the policy that was rescinded was a glaring example of “the Obama administration’s overreach.”

 

Of course, the one thing you need to know about Mrs. DeVos is she has fought for most her life for the inclusion of charter schools to be in the public education sphere. She realizes that everyone, not just the very wealthy, should have the right to send their kid to an environment that will offer them the best education possible. DeVos is one of the main reasons why Detroit is filled with charter schools while their public schools continue to deteriorate.

 

Of course, another interesting thing about Betsy DeVos – and one of the hallmarks of her political chutzpah – would be the fact she is not afraid to team up with individuals that she normally would vehemently disagree with on other issues. One instance of this would be when she teamed up with Miami-based rapper Pitbull to tour one of the charter schools he started in his hometown. You see, Betsy DeVos believes that giving public schools a little bit of competition will not only be good for charter schools, but also good for public and private schools simply because it will force all of the institutions to do better.

Renovia and Marc Beer Raise Millions For Women’s Health Issues

Marc Beer has been the CEO and Chairman of Renovia since 2016 and in this time he has focused his efforts on addressing pelvic floor disorder, a condition that affects 250 million women in the world. For many years, the life-altering disorder did not have that many treatment options available. Even to this day, options are still rather limited which is something that Marc Beer and Renovia hope to be able to remedy so these women can live with less severe symptoms.

 

Renovia’s first product was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States in April of 2018. The Leva device was funded through Marc Beer’s first round of capital raising for the company. With the second round of funding that was just recently completed in 2018, Marc Beer is expecting more products to reach the approval phase. The Series B round raised around $42 million for the company that has a strong focus on women’s health issues. There were investors from the first round who were impressed by the progress Renovia was able to make already and decided to put more of their capital into current and future products with the last round.

 

The device that was approved earlier in 2018 was designed to help train the muscles of the pelvic floor in order to strengthen them and give patients more control over their disorder. The device uses an interactive system that connects via Bluetooth with an app. Through the use of training, the product by Marc Beer’s Renovia was designed to improve the urinary incontinence issues that are very common among people with pelvic floor disorders. Marc Beer plans to release a new version of the state of the art device using some of the recently raised funding.

 

Aside from the new Leva device, there are 3 other products that Marc Beer’s company is currently working on that will be progressed using the most recent funding. These devices are being designed for not only therapeutic purposes like the Leva but also for diagnostic purposes as well. The company is happy with the amount of support that it has received through funding and belief in the vision that Marc Beer has for the company.

Marc Beer has been an entrepreneur in different sectors of healthcare for more than 2 decades and has built quite a reputation over the years. Because of his leadership, his companies have been able to get many of their products approved by the FDA. The CEO and Chairman of Renovia also serves in the position of Chairman for Minerva Neuroscience as of 2013 and Good Start Genetics as of 2010.

 

Expansion and Growth of OSI Industries to a Global Level

The enormous growth of OSI Industries is both remarkable and historical. The company has managed to stay afloat for more than a century after being founded by Otto Kolschowsky in the early 1900s. At first, Otto Kolschowsky established a retail shop that would supply meat to the people who resided in the Illinois Community. His business grew extensively, and it became a wholesale butcher shop. Since people were satisfied with the services and the quality of meat at Otto Kolschowsky’s butcher shop, the business continued to grow profoundly.

Otto Kolschowsky’s business was growing at a tremendous rate, and he had to seek the help of his two sons- Arthur and Harry. By working together with his two sons, the business turned into a family entity, and it was renamed into Otto & Sons. The name signified that Otto was working together with his sons and their combined efforts continued to propel the growth of the company. The company also gained fame since they were among the leading food processing companies based in Illinois. The quality of their products was also outstanding which is why Ray Kroc first signed a partnership agreement with Otto & Sons before venturing into the food industry.

The partnership entailed Otto & Sons supplying large quantities of meat products to the McDonalds restaurants that were owned by Ray Kroc. Although Ray Kroc only started with one restaurant, his knowledge about franchising helped him to expand the McDonalds entity. The larger the McDonalds entity grew, the larger the demand for meat products and Otto & Sons was gaining a lot from the company’s growth.

Although Otto & Sons have been in existence for more than a century, the company has gone by many names, and currently, the corporation is known as OSI Industries. The company has also come across various challenges such as being unable to transport meat products over long distances. To overcome this challenge, OSI Industries liaised with some researchers, and they came across cryogenic freezing that involved the use of liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitrogen was being used as a food preservative, and it made sure that the meat products being transported by OSI Industries would stay in a frozen state to preserve their freshness.
