Alkaline drinking water is a great way to balance your pH levels. This means naturally alkaline water, not man made alkaline water. Our bodies are often bombarded with acidic foods, environment, and other factors that create disease and illness in our bodies. There is a pH scale that can tell us what level or number a food item or beverage is at. 0 is the most acidic on the scale and 14 is completely alkaline. You don’t want to be completely acidic or alkaline. 7.4 is the happy medium. Surprisingly you would think that bottled water would be relatively neutral, but that is not the case. Many companies bottled water ranges from a startling 4 to a more balanced 7. 5.5 is when drinks or beverages starts eating away at the teeth. How could water do that? Waiakea is aware of how good or bad water affects the body and is socially conscious. Their water is a 8.2 helping balance the body back to alkaline, a state in which it is striving for.

While Tyson Foods had to make a serious decision and close down one of their manufacturing plants, another food distributor has come in to buy the plant and bring back jobs to south Chicago. The shutting down of this plant was becoming inevitable as Tyson’s leaders said that this plant simply couldn’t keep up with the new customer demands that were hitting the marketplace.
When the plant changed ownership around 480 employees had been laid off, but OSI Group offered employment to all of those remaining the opportunity to stay with the company. OSI Group has stated acquiring this plant will help meet their own demands for increased production spaces.
OSI Group operates out of the greater Chicago area and is one of the world’s largest growing private companies in the food service sector. The company processes and treats meat taken from domestic livestock and has partnerships with various distribution companies by which they sell it to clients across the globe. They’ve acquired various Asian and European food distribution companies including Baho Food and one of the UK’s largest distributors, Flagship Europe. In most cases, OSI Group’s practice when acquiring companies has been to retain current leaders at the companies while increasing their supply chain and funding.
