OSI Group Continues to Expand its European Presence

In 2016 OSI Group established its European Flagship to enlarge its reach into European markets and to establish a greater presence worldwide. This addition to the OSI Group’s portfolio has given its leadership a focused eye into the local tastes and trends and has allowed them to become a leading presence in the European food processing market.

Beginning with its acquisition of the Calder brand, OSI has strategically increased its European branding and recognition. The lately acquired Baho food has given OSI Group further reach into the food markets of the Netherlands and Germany, as well as adding the popular brands Geldeland Frish Waren, Vital Convenience, Henri Van de Bilt, Bakx Foods and Q Smartlife to the OSI Group family of products. It has been these types of actions that have allowed the leadership at OSI Group headquarters to gain further insight into European appetites.

OSI Group’s facility in Toledo, Spain has also seen recent investment. A high-capacity production line was added to their current operations and has doubled its output chicken processing while also increasing the workforce in OSI Spain’s facility.

During its European expansion, OSI group has been mindful of the impact of their operations and have actively focused on environmental sustainability and worked to mitigate any negative impacts its operations may cause. These actions have earned the OSI Group the Globe of Honour Award from the British Safety Council. An award that confirms the OSI Group’s dedication to creating a positive environmental impact, the OSI group had to obtain a five-star rating in the British Safety Council’s environmental management to even be considered for the award. This continued adherence to environmental sustainability is one of OSI Groups important goals and will continue to influence operations.

Through continued guidance from the European Flagship and OSI Group’s insistence upon quality, safe environmental practice and its continued responsiveness to local tastes, OSI Group will continue to be a strong competitor in the European foodservice market and an exciting company to watch as its growth continues globally.

How Ryan Seacrest Has Found Success As A Host, Producer, And Fashion Designer

Ryan Seacrest is best known for being the host of American Idol but he has also been a part of many other popular shows on the tv and radio. He is also a producer and he has a popular line of menswear plus a new line of men’s skincare products. While American Idol has been off the air for a few years it is now returning, and he has agreed to once again be the host.

He is 43 years old and is originally from Atlanta. He was a student at the University of Georgia where he was a student for a year before deciding to leave college and instead find his fortunes in Hollywood. His first show was in 1993 and he hosted Radical Outdoor Challenge on ESPN. This led to hosting some kids shows where he gained more exposure. His radio career grew out of this and he now has about 20 million listeners for his “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” show.

Ryan Seacrest’s hosting duties expanded in 2005 when he joined Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. He has since hosted other events and in May 2017 he joined Kelly Rippa for a new television show called, “Live with Kelly and Ryan”. This necessitated that he leaves Los Angeles and move to New York.

He is also a producer. He is the executive producer of 12 shows which includes “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and its spin-offs like “Kourtney and Kim Take New York”. He also executive produces “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” which won an Emmy Award.

It was in 2014 that he launched Ryan Seacrest Distinction. This brand of clothing is only sold in Macy’s retail stores. He also signed an agreement to only sell his newer line of men’s skincare products there. As he is known for wearing close-fitting suits that is what Distinction originally offered. This didn’t succeed as much as he hoped because a lot of guys didn’t want to wear slim clothing. He retooled this line of clothing and that was very successfully done as he is on target for selling $50 million worth of clothing in 2018. He doesn’t only focus on business but he also contributes to charities and foundations.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi Takes Over As The Chairman Of Bradesco Bank

A President in any organization plays a critical role in determining the direction that a company takes. Thus, any individual holding this top position should have unmatched competencies that help to steer a company in the right direction. Some of the topmost corporations in the world have remained at the top position since they have great leaders who make the right decisions for the company. Their decisions determine whether these companies will remain afloat in profitability or they will sink into losses and finally exit the market.

Bradesco Bank, one of the largest financial institutions in Latin America has always been cautious when appointing the top leadership. In fact, the bank has had only four top executives since it was founded close to six decades ago. One must have outstanding leadership qualities before they are appointed to the top position in this bank. It is probably one of the reasons why Bradesco bank has been ahead of other financial institutions in Brazil for many years.

Adam Milstein Explains The Role He Has At Hager Pacific Properties

Adam Milstein is one of the most respected Jewish-American philanthropists who has built a solid career as a real estate investor and broker. He cofounded Hager Pacific Properties back in the late 1980s and has been with the company for about 20 years. Milstein has built up quite a lot of wealth in real estate from being able to execute lucrative deals in buying and selling and expand its portfolio from the Los Angeles area across the rest of California and into Illinois and Texas as well.

Adam Milstein decided to share with Ideamensch how he runs the company and what others can expect to find in the real estate profession. He said that at his job there’s not usually a regular schedule of how things are run because real estate could have fast or slow-paced days depending on if a new property is being financed or a major deal is being conducted. Milstein believes he can work best on the fly, and he considers the ability to think outside the box as being key to his job.

Adam Milstein is not only a real estate expert, but he’s also highly involved in philanthropy and works closely with various Jewish political and religious leaders. He was born in Haifa, Israel and prior to starting his real estate career, he served in the IDF and also worked with his father in building framing and construction. After finishing his 4-year degree at the Technion, he moved to the US and completed graduate school at the University of Southern California. Several years after cofounding Hager Pacific Properties, Milstein started the Milstein Family Foundation and the Israeli-American Council.

Adam Milstein has several key demographics of Jewish-Americans he works with from young children and their families, to college students and senior groups. Other groups his foundation supports include Hillel International and its branches, Birthright Israel, AIPAC, the Anti-Defamation League Pacific, StandWithUs and several other college activist organizations. One of the Milstein Foundation’s priorities is to help families learn Hebrew with the inclusion of children’s stories, and they’ve put together the curriculum at Sifriyat Pijama B’America.

Jeunesse Global continues hitting the market with popular products

While Jeunesse Global is not exactly a household name, you still may have heard of it before. That’s because the company is the single fastest-growing health and beauty firm on the planet today. Founded in 2009 by a retired Florida couple, the astonishing rise of the company from complete obscurity to one of the largest direct marketers of niche health and beauty products on the planet has been one of the most jaw-dropping success stories of the last decade.

Jeunesse Global was founded by industry veterans Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis. First operating out of the couple’s sprawling Florida mansion, the company enjoyed the advantages of being run by two of the most skilled and experienced entrepreneurs in the industry. Their prior experience allowed Ray and Lewis to quickly build a competitive business, avoiding many of the pitfalls that so often consume the efforts of lesser entrepreneurs.

Lewis was able to leverage her extensive contacts in the industry, hiring the top research and development scientists to create products that addressed niche gaps in the market. The result has been nothing short of stunning as Jeunesse has developed its comprehensive YES package and confirmed that an independent startup can go from zero to billion-dollar company, simply by successfully answering niche needs in the marketplace.

One of the company’s most revolutionary products is its Zen 8 Project, including the Zen Bodi weight-loss supplement. Unlike many faddish weight loss programs, the Zen 8 Project makes no spectacular claims and it doesn’t rely on the use of terribly restrictive or imbalanced diets. Instead, the Zen 8 Project and Zen Bodi supplement teach the user to live a health-centric lifestyle.

The Zen 8 Project name gives some indication of this philosophical approach not only to weight loss but also to overall mental and physical health in general. The program teaches scientifically proven methods of maintaining a healthy lifestyle through the development of habits. The Zen Bodi supplement is a proven fat-burning agent that can increase the body’s metabolism of fatty tissue while also lessening the recovery times after workouts. But the Zen 8 Project’s real secret is that it harnesses the most powerful weight-loss tool in existence: the user’s mind.
