Roberto Santiago Builds The Future of Brazil

In 1958 Roberto Santiago was born in Joao Pessoa João is the capital of the state of Paraíba in Brazil. He received a Business Administration degree from the University Center of Joao Pessoa. He also attended the Pio X-Marist College and graduated with a Master’s Degree.


Today, Roberto Santiago is a successful Brazilian businessman, generous entrepreneur, and an intelligent visionario who loves Brazil. Mr. Santiago started a business after he graduated so that he could help employ more of his conterrâneos. At the time, his business was a Cartonnage industry company that made cardboard boxes, paper and packaging products.


It was through his lucrative paper company business that he was imbued with the idea of creating a posh mall for his native Brazilians to work in, as well as to shop and dine in elegance. Thus, the great Manaira Shopping Mall was created and designed with local floral landscaping and other beautiful architectural features. Manaira is a city within Paraiba in the northeastern part of Brazil.


Roberto Santiago has further designed the Manaira Mall with a concert hall called The Domus Hall. Domus Hall was created atop the mall’s rooftop. The concern hall has already been used by many local Brazilian entertainers and other international artist who ordinarily would not have thought to perform in Brazil. Mr. Santiago also invites the local residents to use Domus Hall for weddings, anniversaries, graduation events, regional fairs, and cultural activities.


As you can tell, Manaira is Brazil’s largest mall in the Paraiba region. Mr. Santiago purchased the property in 1987 now occupied by the multi-leveled Mall. The Manaira Mall was completed in 1989. It was Roberto’s desire to improve the shopping, dining, and social activities for the region’s residents. Also, in 2013 Roberto Santiago built another modern mall call Mangerira. Mangerira is not built on the same scale of Manaira, but was a shopping center, Mangerira is a success.


Roberto Santiago does not miss an opportunity to talk to young Brazilian youths on the importance of becoming their own businessmen, to positively increase the image of their country. Mr. Santiago also encourages Brazil’s millennials to become successful entrepreneurs. Talking about educating young adults, Roberto Santiago created a school within the Manaira Mall called The College of Higher Education of Paraiba.


In addition to shoppers and diners, the Manaira Mall is quite a place of activity with the school’s students and staff. Not only are there shops of all types within the tiers of Manaira Mall, there are also upscale nightclubs/bars, restaurants, banking companies, a huge food court, large multi-lane bowling alley, several 3-D movie theaters, gaming areas, and more.

OSI Group Expands Operations

OSI Industries, an Aurora based food processing company, recently purchased a large food processing plant in the Chicago Metropolitan area from Tyson as part of an ongoing initiative to expand their operations as one of the top 100 food producers in the United States.

The 7.4 Million Dollar purchase of the former Tyson plant saved hundreds of food workers their jobs, as well as creating new opportunities for those in the area, as Tyson had intended to cease all operations in the area, according to an announcement given in November. This adds the Chicago Processing facility to OSI Group’s growing assembly of more than 60 facilities across the planet.

OSI Industries, founded in Aurora, Illinois in 1909 and currently chaired by Mr. Sheldon Lavin continues to produce a number of processed meat products, including bacon and breakfast sausage, as well as providing processing services to a number of packaged food brands distributed around the globe. OSI doesn’t limit itself to value-added protein items, also providing processing for bread and dough based products, and kettle cooked offerings, both fresh and frozen. This fits with OSI Group’s mission statement of ensuring the shelves of retail stores throughout the US and abroad are stocked with a variety of inexpensive products. OSI Foods’ continued devotion to meeting rapidly changing consumer demand is a surefire cause for the recent acquisition, no doubt a boon to the surrounding area.

OSI Industries recently merged with a counterpart on the European Continent late last year, Flagship Europe, another food processing provider, the exciting merger will surely make OSI a force to be reckoned with in the coming years as it continually expands operations and production capability both domestically and abroad. It can be difficult for businesses, particularly large ones, to react to consumer demand quickly enough to remain viable in the internet age, OSI has proven itself ahead of the curve in it’s attempts to satisfy consumer demand. Here’s to another century of service.
