OSI Industries Makes Major Acquisition of Baho Food

OSI Industries is leading the charge to ensure that the highest quality of value-added foods are available to every household across the globe. The company has a major presence in 17 countries throughout the world and is the proud employer of over 20,000 people throughout its marked 65 major operations within those 17 countries. OSI is one of America’s largest businesses that is privately owned and has been named to the prestigious list of top 100 companies that are held privately within the United States. OSI Industries is rapidly expanding and one of its major focus points is to rapidly grow its North American footprint through the acquisition of brands that are already well established as household names in North America. OSI Industries specializes in producing and globally distributing the finest quality meats. These meats include top-quality sausage, bacon, poultry products, beef products and items that are beloved by those in North America, including hot dogs and items like chili. OSI Industries is one of the largest suppliers of the highest quality of meat products in the world and continues rapid expansion in all places where it already has a foothold.

For example, OSI Industries recently acquired the famous Tyson Group chicken plant in Chicago, Illinois. Last November, Tyson Foods made the unfortunate announcement that due to fact that the area’s production rate was slow, it would have to close the company’s Chicago plant. This would have meant that nearly two thousand people would be put out of work. This fact was exceptionally unfortunate due to the fact that Chicago’s Southside area was already a bit of a depressed area where truly good jobs were hard to find. However, OSI Industries swept in at the last minute and decided to purchase the exceptionally large facility and take it under the OSI Industries wing, while maintaining the Tyson name that has such a strong household presence in the United States and beyond. This acquisition meant that the famed OSI Industries umbrella now included such legendary names like Jimmy Dean, Ballpark and many more.

In addition to expanding the OSI Industries company’s footprint within the North American sector, OSI Industries has made major headlines through its acquisition of Baho Food. The company is based in the Netherlands but has a major stronghold throughout all of Europe and beyond. Baho Food is also a supplier of prime meats that include chicken, sausage and beef products.

Arizona Journalists Speak out Against Arpaio’s Pardon

Ever since Joe Arpaio was elected Sheriff of Maricopa County, he has been trying to make a name for himself at the expense of others.

Originally, he attempted to be recognized as a tough on crime member of the law enforcement community. When his attempts fell short, he turned to immigration – a hot button issue among politicians.

“He was a terrible sheriff, a terrible jailer,” began Jim Larkin, one of Arpaio’s many victims. “But he was a great f—— politiian. I actually think he was a precursor to Trump.”

Jim Larkin was involved in one incident that brought Joe Arpaio fame. Joe Arpaio made headlines when he arrest Jim Larkin and his business partner Michael Lacey, of The Phoenix New Times.

Headlines all over the country mentioned Joe Arpaio’s illegal arrest of the two journalists. This was not the type of fame Arpaio wanted.]

Arpaio arrested the journalists and shipped them off to separate jails. Arpaio told the public he made the arrest because the journalists were writing about court documents in their paper; the real reason Arpaio arrested them is because they knew too much.

Writers at The Phoenix New Times had been investing Joe Arpaio’s illegal activities for years before the arrest. When Arpaio arrested Lacey and Larkin, his name was no longer merely appearing in local headlines: Arpaio was national. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Twitter

In 2007, Arpaio cost the Maricopa County citizens 75 million dollars; 3.75 million dollars was paid to Larkin and Lacey alone. The majority of the rest of the money went to a Mexican citizen who was visiting Arizona on a tourist visa. Arpaio arrest the Mexican citizen for no reason other than the color of his skin.

Stemming from the event with the tourist, Joe Arpaio was charged and convicted of criminal contempt of court;however, Donald Trump pardoned him a mere 12 weeks before sentencing.

Michael Lacey, son of a construction worker and now journalist, attributes Trump’s move to his dwindling fanbase. “Trump’s approval rating is down around 30 percent,” he said. “[Trump’s supporters] are going to like what he did. But the rest of us are never going to forget it.”

While it is true that Trump and Arpaio’s fanbases cross over, Arpaio and Trump share similar views themselves on immigration. Just like Arpaio, Trump is attempting to make his name notorious through the use of harsh, sometimes nonsensical immigration policy.

The Mexican tourist that Arpaio arrest has surely retired with his family, but Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin still had work to do. With the money they received from their settlement they decided to co-found a couple of new organizations: a charity and a new publication.

They are using The Frontera Fund and Front Page Confidential to both spread awareness of Arpaio and to stop Joe Arpaio from advancing his political career. Since the lawsuit, they have sold Phoenix New Times in favor of their more politically focused efforts.
