In the current globalized world economies, OSI industries is headed to take over the world’s market on the distribution of foods products to restaurant chains. OSI was founded by a German Immigrant in 1909 and they called the business Otto’s Meat Market. It operated as a family enterprise and by 1928 they changed the name to Otto & Sons. By 1975, the business of supplying the meat products was growing rapidly, therefore they named it to OSI Industries. The further expansion of the company’s operations the beyond the USA borders prompted the owners to change its name once again to OSI Group.
One key partnership that has contributed significantly to the growth of OSI is that with McDonald’s. The two companies partnered over sixty years ago when Ray Kroc, the owner of McDonald’s, was opening the first outlet. OSI Industries supplies chicken items, salsa, fish products, hot dogs, among other food products.
OSI Industries management team with the support of its 20,000 employees has worked hard to grow the business operations and to meet the varying needs of its clients. The company has managed to standardize the process of promoting food safety in all the facilities and has successfully maintained consistency in the food products they deliver to clients in the US and abroad.
Apart from perfecting its business operations, OSI Industries has also created lasting relationships with business partners, the likes of McDonald’s, Burger King, among others. It also engages in fostering relationships with communities by supporting causes that create an impact on the community. For instance, its facility in Illinois donates to Northern Illinois Food Bank, which engages in offering food to the poor in the community.
OSI Group is still focused on achieving further growth internationally and the majority of its recent endeavors are growth-oriented. Among these undertaking was buying of Flagship Europe and Baho Food, which are food product companies operating in various parts of Europe. The COO of OSI Group said that the acquisitions will succeed in making the company more popular in the European food industry. It also bought a processing plant in Chicago that was previously under the management of Tyson Food Plant.
