OSI Group: Food Production on a Global Scale

It is almost unfathomable to consider the exponential growth of OSI Group since its humble beginning as a neighborhood butcher shop in the outskirts of Chicago, IL. Since the early part of the twentieth century, this amazing company has defied the odds and changed the way food is processed and distributed in practically every corner of the globe.

A significant event that contributed to the wholesale evolution of this company; was ushered in via a new business model in the restaurant industry. In the mid-1950’s, OSI Group was still known under its original name – Otto & Sons – and the new restaurant was named McDonald’s. After Otto & Sons struck a deal with this fast-growing restaurant chain to be its exclusive beef supplier; this food processing company from Chicago quickly became known as a major player in the food production industry.

By the late 1970’s, OSI Group had expanded its market base to select areas in Europe, and in the 1980’s this company began to reach distribution points in South America. At this juncture, there was no doubt that this small business from the Midwest was now a legitimate multinational food processing giant.

In recent years, OSI has focused its resources towards the southern areas of the European Union. The company is building new processing plants to meet an increasing demand for food production. This expansion plan increases the company’s ability to distribute a variety of meat products to areas that have a pressing need to meet the requirements of an ever-expanding population base.

For example, in Spain OSI has recently spent millions of dollars to build a gigantic food processing facility to provide its customers with fresh food that can be distributed to retail outlets throughout southern Europe.

OSI Group has proven itself on the world stage by producing food products in almost any country around the globe, and as population centers continue to grow; OSI will be there to meet the needs of countries around the world both now and in the future.
