OSI Group: Reinventing The Food Service Industry

Headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, is one of the leading custom food suppliers in the world. This company just so happens to be one of the largest independent companies in the U.S. Custom food-to-table solutions is the name of the game and nobody does it better than OSI Group. The company was started back in 1909 by Otto Kolschowky. This German immigrant opened the business with his family members, and it was known as Otto & Sons. Some of the freshest of beef products were being sold and the company’s notoriety would reach the masses. Otto & Sons started out in Maywood, Illinois, as a small meat market, but it has grown into a global powerhouse.

For 2016, OSI Food Solutions was presented with the Globe of Honour Award for its outstanding management of environmental risks. This company was one of 18 other companies that were nominated for their excellence in food service management. The event was held in London, England, at the prestigious Drapers’ Hall. OSI also won this award in 2013 and in 2015. As you can see, the company provides a host of services that includes processing, distribution and development. Winners of the award got a chance to speak at the event by sharing their inspirational stories. OSI Group’s reach is simply unmatched when being compared to other similar companies. It supplies many of the biggest brands in the world with top-of-the-line food solutions. This includes the prominent brands of Pizza Hut, Subway, Starbucks, Yum, Burger King, McDonald’s, Saizerlya and many more. Thanks to China’s consistent growth, OSI Group has also been able to grow at a faster rate.

This company has up to 20,000 employees that work in some of the most state-of-the-art facilities. The facilities just so happen to be located in 17 countries worldwide. Last year, OSI Group made a huge business acquisition by acquiring Tyson Foods. This acquisition would be for the Tyson’s plant in the Chicago area, which has helped to strengthen OSI Group’s infrastructure. The company has also added a high capacity production line in Hungary. This $25 million facility has helped the company triple its production capacity to 22,000 tons of processed chicken products.
