OSI Group is a company that was founded in 1909 as Otto’s meat market and later on in 1928 changed to Otto $ Sons and OSI Group in 1975 when it went international. The company provides its services in America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe with its main offices in Illinois, USA.
The company is one of the leading food processors that offer food at convenience stores. The company has put in more effort in the food standardization of the production process and creating a good relationship with other partners like the Northern Illinois Food Bank as well as the general community.
The company was founded humbly by Otto Kolschowsky who was a German immigrant. It then got to a broader market in 1952 when McDonald’s selected it as their meat supplier. They produce a host of products including hot dogs, chicken items, meat patties, vegetable food like fresh salsa, and other frozen entrees. The company also supplies their products to some restaurant companies that are well known.
OSI Group has 65 facilities with about 20,000 employees who work in the facilities located in 17 different countries around the world. It features in the list of the leading private companies in U.S.A that offer other organizations in the food industry a partner with excellent capabilities and with an international reputation.
OSI Group is working closely with farms, poultry processing firms, and other warehouses as well as getting into joint ventures that will make the company a leading food provider around the world. Recently, the company chicken processing capacity doubled from 12, 000 to 24,000 in the stations in Spain following the seventeen million Euros investment in the processing facility. The expansion created 20 new positions that added to the 140 employees in the facilities.
The main factor that makes OSI different from other food providers is the fact that they provide the food according to the client’s specification. There is no standard foot item catalog from their facilities because it works with the customers and offers the flavor according to the client’s tastes. There is an experienced team at OSI Group that is dedicated to developing the food from the specific menu.
