Founded decades ago, Market America is a revolutionary product brokerage company that uses a cutting edge form of direct selling to get their products in the hands of customers. Based out of North Carolina, Market America provides products through their site Shop.com, which stops over 35 million items. They’ve expanded across the globe with Market America branches everywhere from Canada to Australia to Europe to Hong Kong.

One of Market America’s recent program launches is the Motives Apprentice Program which can be used by the company’s network of independent salespeople to raise their own profits and boost sales.

Motives Apprentice Program allows salespeople to take on a group of apprentices, usually teens and young people, to teach them how to sell the company’s cosmetic products. The apprentice can give customers their information and make their own profits from the sale while the independent salesperson also benefits from their team of new sellers. The program is absolutely free to sign up for those ages 14 through 18.

While in this program, teens can earn income on their schedule while maintaining commitments to school and extracurricular activities without the demands of a traditional part time job. The teen apprentice gets their own website for sales, and can become a traditional business associate of the salesperson once they become old enough! In addition, they learn valuable sales skills as well as communication and learning about how to properly run a business.

While there are lots of benefits for the teenage apprentice, there are just as many benefits for their mentor salesperson! The salesperson gets additional BV on the apprentice’s customers, which increases with repeat orders. In addition, the salesperson can network with the apprentice’s customers and they’ll be able to sign on the apprentice to become a business associate once they turn 18 years old.

The Motives Apprentice Program is a valuable experience that teenagers can utilize to earn income while learning about running a business and making a sale. The mentor also gets incentives from the deal. This program is a must try for Market America salespeople!

OSI Food Solutions is an international firm with one of its facilities located in Toledo, Spain. This facility processes chicken, beef, and pork that is delivered to restaurants and grocery stores across Spain and Portugal. This company headquarters is just outside of Chicago, Illinois. The managing director of their Spanish operations is José María del Río. He said that demand for chicken in Spain and Portugal has been steadily increasing for the past decade. In order to meet this demand their Toledo facility needed to be expanded which cost this company €17 million.

The biggest improvement was the introduction of a high-capacity production line José María del Río said. This doubled the amount of chicken they could deliver to their customers. They can now supply 45,000 tons of total meat a year with 24,000 of that being processed chicken. He said that they increased their workforce at this plant to 140 employees from 120.

OSI Food Solutions also added 22,600 square feet of space to the facility. There is a new production hall as well as a new area to receive their supplies and ship out their products. Among other additions they also added a new testing and development kitchen. This kitchen is being used to test out new recipes and otherwise provide food solutions to their customers.

To meet growing demand OSI Food Solutions has expanded in other ways as well. One example of this took place in June 2016 when it was announced that this company was buying a facility in Chicago that Tyson Foods owned and was planning on shutting down. They had already laid off 230 of their 480 employees when this deal was finalized. A spokeswoman for OSI Food Solutions, Caroline Ahn, stated that most of these remaining employees had been given jobs by her company. The cost of this deal was announced as being $7.4 million.

One of the big focuses at OSI Food Solutions is on environmental responsibility. This commitment to the environment led to this company being honored with the Globe of Honour Award in the United Kingdom. The British Safety Council conducted a year-long audit of OSI Food Solutions to make sure they were environmentally responsible at each step that it takes to process and send food. This award was given to representatives of the company in November 2016. This event was held at Drapers’ Hall which is a prestigious building in London.
