The recent acquisitions of a Tyson Foods plant in their home state of Illinois, Baho Foods a Dutch specialty meats supplier and Flagship Europe a frozen food supplier, demonstrated the tendency for solid decisions and methodical growth of the foodservice giant, OSI.

Listed as a Top 100 private Corporation by Forbes, OSI has shown for many years that they’ve set a high standard of performance. In 2016 the British Safety Council awarded the company with the Globe of Honour award for exemplary management of the environment. They have also committed to providing fulfilling careers for their 20,000 employees worldwide by expanding training and education opportunities and long-term employment.

Started as a retail meat market in 1909 by Otto Kohlschowsky, they had changed their name to Otto and Sons and developed into a wholesale supplier by 1917. Later, they became one of the main beef suppliers for McDonalds, turning them into a national company. For many years, their business centered on supplying frozen patties for the world’s largest restaurant chain. As they grew, they took on supplying other major chains like Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, Subway and others. Their recent acquisitions will help them in accommodating an ever-changing food service industry.

OSI Industries has three production plants in their home home state as well as Iowa, Utah, Wisconsin and California. They have delivered to all parts of the world including Europe and Asia. Their growth has been very steady with a long record of good management and solid business decisions. Look to OSI to be a leader in the food supply industry for many years to come.
