A new agency sb has created a Program for Corporate Integrity that is under the Ministry of Transparency, Control, and Supervision. This agency is one of the first to develop a code of conduct that will be in accord with the Anti-corruption Law. It is also the only agency to consult with the CGU about corporate rules.

It is no use to look like we are proper, we must always be proper and act coherently and ethically. It is an intense process that requires internal changes that are in accordance with ethics.”

The code of conduct was created by Manesco, Ramires, Perez, the Azevedo Marques Society of Lawyers and by the lawyer Silvia Urquiza, who are specialists on the subject. They also evaluated the new sb leaders, the Corporate Integrity manager and the members of the Internal Ethics Committee. The code of conduct has been released to the employees who have not only read it but have undergone training. The code of conduct is on the agencies intranet and the agency website.

OSI Industries Builds Its Presence Into The UK With Flagship Europe Buyout

Business, Food Industry

Flagship Europe was a former branch of the American-based Flagship Food Group that serves most of the UK and has customers in France and Spain, and its products have consisted of breakfast meats, roasted chicken and chicken nuggets, baked pies and various sauces. In the years leading up to 2016, it started undergoing financial difficulties and was preparing to shutter several locations. Sheldon Lavin, the CEO of OSI Industries decided to buy Flagship Europe but decided to keep its brand name and welcomed Flagship Europe CEO Russell Maddock to the executive team as well as the rest of the company’s employees. Flagship Europe is now receiving funding to reach even more customers in its European territories.

OSI Industries was originally owned by Otto Kolschowsky and his family, but it was only a butcher shop in a Chicago suburb when it started in 1909. But the family impressed many local food service merchants that it continued running for more than 40 years in the Chicago area, and it became a well-known market store known as Otto & Sons. Otto & Sons made headlines when McDonald’s restaurant corporation asked them to become its meat supply merchant. This new partnership meant that Otto & Sons was going to need to grow at a tremendous rate in order to meet the supply capabilities of McDonald’s, and that’s when they began seeking funding for new high-technology processing plants. Sheldon Lavin, a former banker turned consultant offered his input to the company and helped them open a suburban operating plant and later more plants in Iowa, Wisconsin and California. As their holdings increased, Otto & Sons was renamed OSI Industries and Lavin was nominated CEO and Chairman as the Kolschowsky’s started retiring and exiting the company.

Since the mid-1970s, OSI Industries has invested in high quality production plants stationed in 17 different countries, and along with employees on the assembly lines most of these plants have advanced food research centers on their premises. They also have invested in clean production technology in their refrigeration and heating equipment, and it led to their receiving the Globe of Honour award from the British Safety Council around the same time that Flagship Europe was acquired. OSI Industries currently ranks at number 10 in the world’s largest meat processing companies and according to ProvisionerOnline.com also ranks at number 54 in total food production. OSI Industries has philanthropic initiatives as a supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charities and a donor to the Chicago Inner City Foundation.

Heal N Soothe: A Supplement that Packs a Punch

Beauty World, Business, No More Pain

If you are an avid follower of herbal supplements or alternative medicine, you may have heard of Heal N Soothe, a product offered by Living Well Nutraceuticals. Heal N Soothe is intended for use by adults with joint pain and is formulated with anti-inflammatory herbal extracts. Just what are these extracts? Let’s take a look at only a few of the active ingredients: bromelain, turmeric extract and Mojave yucca root.

Bromelain

Have you ever wondered why pineapples are sometimes used to tenderize meat? The answer lies in this component of the pineapple. Bromelain is a compound that contains enzymes that break down proteins, often thought of as “eating” the protein-rich matter, hence their usage in cooking. These little enzymes are capable of working outside of the kitchen, however. They also have a high potential for medical usage, and research has been conducted to attempt to establish a link between bromelain extract and the relief of pain from inflammation. It is thought that this compound’s enzyme action signals the body to produce pain-relieving compounds of its own.

Turmeric Extract

Another familiar ingredient found in kitchens, turmeric also has a history of usage in folk medicine and traditional medicine. This bright, sunny-hued ingredient is ubiquitous throughout Indian culture, used to flavor everything from curry to tea. In extract form, it is also known for its ability to fight inflammation. Historically, turmeric extract has been used topically, but in modern times it has found new life as a component in orally administered supplements such as Heal N Soothe.

Mojave Yucca Root

Mojave yucca root, also known as yucca, is a versatile plant that finds its way into many supplements, medicines and basic foods and beverages. If you have ever drunk soda or sparkling water, you might be surprised to learn that you may have already ingested yucca root, as it is used to produce foam in carbonated drinks. This root also shows promise in fighting inflammation and decreasing cholesterol. While the effectiveness of Mojave yucca root, as with many other herbal extracts, has yet to be conclusively determined, people who suffer from arthritis, high blood pressure or high cholesterol levels have self-reported some improvement in symptoms following a regimen of yucca root extract.

Selfless Work of Jeff Herman in Supporting the Child Victims Act

Doing Good
As a nationally recognized lawyer and founder of Herman Law, Jeff Herman has dedicated his life to taking a stand for children who have been sexually abused. He does so by representing them in court, and urging legislation to be mindful of the benefits certain bills may have in store for children that become victims of sexual abuse. The Child Victims Act is currently one of the bills that holds the spotlight. If passed, the Child Victims Act would eliminate both criminal and civil statutes of limitations in child sexual abuse cases that take place in New York State.

Individuals who recognize the benefits of this bill are part of a coalition called “New Yorkers Against Hidden Predators,” and the cause that they are constantly fighting for is now being endorsed by stars such as actor Corey Feldman and Team USA volleyball player Sarah Powers-Barnhard. Just like Herman, these are people fighting for the vital growth of community advocacy in attempt to harness the prevention of these crimes that too often ruin children’s lives.

As the law stands now, after the age of 23 the court will no longer hear cases against the perpetrator brought by those individuals who survived child sexual abuse. With the Child Victims Act, individuals wishing to press charges would now have 50 years in civil cases to bring the case against their abuser to the courts. Overall, supporters of the Child Victims Act truly understand that the effects of sexual abuse are often a life-long battle for many who fall victim to this heinous crime.

Time is of the essence in cases of child sexual abuse; cases that Herman works hard to not only defend, but also prevent. If Republican Senate passes the Child Victims Act it would allot for significantly more time for the cases to be heard, and therefore more time for Jeff Herman to do his job.

A Unique Strategy Drives OSI Group’s Expansion Plan

Business, Food Industry

OSI Group is an entity that has a rich history laced with innovative growth strategies. The global company has its headquarters in Aurora, Illinois. OSI can be traced back to 1909, when a German immigrant Otto Kolschowsky opened a small meat market in Oak Park, Illinois. The business expanded gradually to become a leading player in the retail and foodservice industry. OSI’s breakthrough came after partnering with McDonald’s, a relationship that still exists.

OSI Group supplies products to renowned entities in the food industry including McDonald’s, Starbucks, and Burger King. The main products include pork, poultry, bacon, meat patties, and pizza among others.

The company is one of the largest private businesses in the United States. Its expansion to the international market is attributed to an impressive strategy. OSI endeavors to provide customized services to its customers from different parts of the globe. In fact, every brand or outlet of OSI is created in line with the culture, customers’ preferences and regulatory provisions of its location. The result is usually provision of services that satisfy the needs of customers in the particular context.

Another critical element in its strategy is the acquisition of other brands. It has enabled OSI to penetrate other markets such as Europe. At home, OSI Group bought Tyson Foods plant in Chicago. The plant is expected to support infrastructural development, which is an essential element of OSI’s future growth plans.

OSI Group purchased Flagship Europe, a key player in the UK foodservice industry. The Flagship Food Group, Denver owned the brand. Flagship Europe supplies sous vide products, pies, frozen poultry, and mayonnaise sauces among others. Also, OSI acquired Baho Food, a Dutch food processing company. Baho Food is a successful company with five other subsidiaries and presence in 18 European countries. The company also owns two processing plants in Germany and Netherlands.

The two acquisitions have significantly boosted OSI’s presence in the European market. The company, however, plans to retain the teams that were running these enterprises. The decision is in line with OSI’s strategy of maintaining managerial teams that have an excellent understanding of the culture and consumer tastes and preferences. The approach drives OSI’s operational excellence by encouraging the exchange of ideas between the teams at the headquarters and its branches.

OSI Groups now boasts of over 80 facilities and a presence in over 17 countries. It has a workforce of over 20, 000 employees around the world.
