The OSI industries deal with the food processing of raw meat to create various protein products in the food sector. The company was founded in 1909 by a German whose name was Otto Kolschowsky who had moved to America in 1907. He established the organization under the name Otto & Sons where it was based in Aurora, Illinois. The firm specializes in the processing of products for breakfast dishes, snacks, and even lunch to several retail brands and food services. Some of the products it produces include pork products, bacon, hot dogs, cooked beef, breakfast sausages and many more. The brand which was formerly known as the OSI Industries was rebranded in 2004 as the OSI Group LLC.
Over the years the company grew tremendously where after a few decades it had one of the renowned food company known as the McDonalds contracting it for meat supply. The McDonalds which was launched in 1955 had its CEO and founder get into an agreement that saw the fast food company become OSI’s industries main clients. Today, the OSI Industries have expanded to have presence in 17 countries where its network consists of more than 65 facilities and over 20,000 employees. The company offers quality meat and delivers its excellence in the food solutions through its network. Also, OSI has incorporated global councils throughout its large system to share ideas and provide world-class solutions to the clients.
