OSI Food Solutions Increase Meat Production For Business Growth

With an increase in demand by Spain and Portugal, OSI Food Solutions has bought a meat facility in Spain. Before the Purchase of the facility in Spain, OSI Food Solutions was producing an average of twelve thousand to twenty-four thousand tons of meat per year, which didn’t cover the increase in demand made by clients in Portugal and Spain. After the purchase of the facility in Spain, OSI Food Solutions will have an annual production of forty-five tons of meat annually.

Furthermore, Tyson announced that they were going to close down a facility in Chicago, which would lay off more than four hundred and twenty workers due to a lack of efficiency. Due to this news, OSI Food Solutions saw this as a method of improving their chicken production in the United States, due to an increase in demand for chicken by rising retail food stores. The Tyson family was bought for seven million dollars. Not only will this benefit OSI Food Solutions for chicken production, but also future clients who continue to demand mega from OSI, leading to business growth and demand for more meat distribution. This has been seen as OSI has recorded an increase of six to eight percent demand rate in over three years. In addition, unlike previous facilities by OSI, Tyson has surveillance technology equipped, and a ready to go quick-fire response system, which reduces hazardous conditions in the workplace for employees within the 20,000-acre facility.

OSI Food Solution was founded by German immigrant Otto Kolschowski in 1909. Before becoming a privately owned worldwide distributor, OSI was a meat market that supplied fast-food chain McDonald’s. Now for decades has been a lead distributor, and developer of foods for food stores, and food chains. Due to the Success of OSI, and the increasing number of the happy client, OSI currently operate over sixty-five facilities worldwide. Currently, OSI manages over twenty thousand employees at these facilities.

Jeunesse Global Successful Direct Selling Story

Jeunesse Global is a successful direct selling company that was founded in 2009. The company carries expanding lines of skincare products and supplements. Many of their products are designed to work together, but all have a common goal, which is to promote youthfulness. The skincare products work from the outside while the supplements work from the inside. This approach to slowing aging has proven popular, as the company has grown substantially over the past 9 years. Annual sales now exceed the billion dollar mark, and the company has devoted sellers and customers across the globe.

A major component of many Jeunesse Global products are antioxidants. Antioxidants have been lauded by the health and beauty industries for years for having protective and anti-aging effects. When ample presence of antioxidants are available, the body’s ability to repair itself increases. This is a result of antioxidants’ effect on free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules. When the body’s biological systems cannot effectively detox as a result of free radical overload, cellular oxidation occurs, which produces the signs and symptoms of aging.

Reserve is one of Jeunesse’s antioxidant powerhouses designed to support the body’s fight against free radicals. It comes in a small gel-pack and is recommended for daily consumption. Fruits, especially those with deep hues, are rich in antioxidants, which is why Reserve contains blueberry, acai berry, dark sweet cherry, concord grape, and pomegranate. These fruits also provide the flavor of the gel. No sugars or flavorings are added.

In addition to the fruits, Reserve contains resveratrol, green tea extract, aloe vera, and grapeseed extract. These ingredients bring more antioxidants to the mix, along with protective properties to prevent cellular damage and promote health throughout the body. Aloe vera is associated with many health benefits, from aiding digestion to healing and soothing skin. Resveratrol supports immune and eye health. The combination of all of these components into one product resulted in CAP-e test results that demonstrated a significant protective effect.

Waiakea Water Delivers Clean And Healthy Water As Promised

More and more people are turning to bottled water in lieu of tap water to satisfy their water drinking needs. The reasons for this are many and they include taste, access, and quality. However, it is important to understand a few things about the choices in bottled water before making a decision.

The first thing to know is that not all bottled water is necessarily a better alternative than tap water. In fact, more than a few consumers have been surprised to learn that the water they purchased in a bottle is tap water that has been bottled from municipal water sources.

Waiakea Water is a company that stands firmly behind the quality of its bottled water. Customers that choose water from Waiakea can rest assured that they are receiving exactly what is being advertised.

One main feature of drinking water bottled by Waiakea is the water’s alkalinity. Substances much have a score of 7 or more on the ph scale to be considered alkaline and this is an important factor in maintaining health. Many consumers mistakenly assume that all bottled water is alkaline. This is not true. However, water by Waiakea scores and 8.2 on the ph scale.

Waiakea Water is Hawaiian volcanic water that is filtered through 14,000 feet of rock at the Mauna Loa volcano. The natural water is one of the first to be bottled from the area where rain falls 360 days a year.

Waiakea makes good use of the earth’s natural resources by filtering water through the Mauna Loa volcano and the volcanic water benefits to the health of those who drink water from Waiakea is substantial.

About Waiakea Water

Waiakea Water was founded by Ryan Emmons in  2012 who also acts as the company’s CEO. Emmons grew up close to nature and lived as a child in both California and Hawaii.

Emmons’ got the inspiration for starting Waiakea Water one day while sitting at the base of a volcano that was located not far from his uncle’s home in Hawaii. There was a water source at the base of the volcano and when Emmons took a taste he felt that it was the best water he had drank in his life. His plan to go into business selling bottled water was based on the belief that the world would agree with him.

The History Of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, The Brazilian Banker Who Spent His Entire Career Working For Bradesco Bank

In the current times, it is difficult for an individual to serve in one organization their entire career. However, the case is different for Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi who has spent the last forty-seven years working for Bradesco bank in Brazil. It is human nature to seek greener pastures when opportunities arise. But for Luiz, he decided to stick with his employer through thick and thin. But it seems to have paid off since he was promoted to the top-most post in the institution.

Who is Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi?
Luiz isn’t your typical banking professional. He is a revered banking expert and leader in the banking industry. He has spent the last five decades sharpening his skills at one of the largest banks in Latin America. In fact, he joined the second largest lender while he was only seventeen years in 1969.

With his current massive success, many people would assume that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi scored straight (As) in the banking course. The surprising thing is that he did not even have any background training in banking when he applied for an internship at Bradesco bank.


Luiz attended a college in Brazil where he earned a certificate from the Faculty of Sociology and Politics. While working for the bank, he earned a scholarship to study psychology, philosophy, and letters from Fundacao University. Luiz never thought he would seek a job in the mainstream career. He was passionate about football and thought that he would get a chance to play for the big teams in the world of football. However, his father, who was a banker, convinced him to consider a career in banking. As Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi narrates, after joining the industry in 1969, the rest is history.

He put a lot of effort into his work that earned him one promotion after the other. He started as a Director in the marketing department, then Managing Director of the bank, executive vice president, the CEO of Bradesco Seguros, President of the bank and now he is serving as the chairman. He assumed the current role after the former chairman resigned late last year, paving way for young leaders to take over the banks leadership.

When he was tapped to become the chairman, Luiz needed to step down from his role as the president since the Brazilian banking rules don’t allow an individual to serve in the two offices at the same time. During the race to succeed Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, seven highly qualified vice presidents presented their application to succession committee for consideration. All the eyes were on the recruitment to see whom they would consider to take over as the president of the second largest lender in Latin America.

Many people, including analysts, believed that Mauricio de Minas had an upper hand in succeeding Luiz. However, to their surprise, Octavio de Lazari was considered for the position of the president of the bank. When commenting about Octavio’s appointment, Luiz Carlos Trabuco noted that it was done in accordance with the company’s succession regulation. He continued to note that Octavio was the most qualified to take over from him owing to his immense experience in the banking industry.

The State Of Healthcare Technology

Two companies are looking to make a major splash in the health care industry. A report recently claimed that CVS is looking into purchasing Aetna, which is a health care company. A second report stated that Amazon went through the process of obtaining medical licenses across multiple states. It was later revealed that these licenses were focused on equipment distribution, not prescription medications.

Today, the health care industry is worth $3 trillion. An estimated $9,237 per person is spent on healthcare by the United States. That’s about three times more than most of the other first-world countries. Despite shelling out more money, countries that spend less still match or outperform life expectancy in the United States.

There are organizations that look for ways to bring more efficiency to healthcare in the United States. Evergreen Healthcare Partners specializes in information technologies and services. The organization puts emphasis on the way they treat individuals. They hope to aid team members in their growth as they look to partner with other organizations.

One of the managing partners of Evergreen Healthcare Partners is Drew Madden. He is a healthcare IT entrepreneur. Madden has experience working with partners.

During his time with the company, the number of employees grew significantly from 10 to 275. The same can be said for client partners, which increased from three to 150. In 2012 and 2014, he helped the company earn a #1 ranking in Epic implementation services. Prior to his work at Nordic Consulting Partners, Madden fulfilled his duties as an EpicCare Inpatient and Willow consultant. He also has experience in business development. Madden’s first go at information technology was under the Implementation Consultant at Cerner Corporation.
