If you’re interested in the foodservice industry, then you’ve probably heard about OSI Industries. This company was founded back in the early 1900s, and it has been going strong ever since. OSI Industries has simply dominated other foodservice providers. The benefits definitely outweigh any negatives, but there are no negatives to begin with. The company has been named Otto & Sons at one point in time, and this name came from its owner. Shortly after relocating to the United States, Otto Kolschowski turned his dream into a reality. Fresh beef was the name of the game. As word began to spread, this once small meat locker was receiving business from a variety of retail businesses.
Who has OSI Industries served? Well, this question is fairly simple, but Yum, Starbucks, McDonald’s, Burger King, Subway and others are some of its most high-profile clients. When cryogenics food processing came along, most meat lockers couldn’t keep-up with the times. On the other hand, this company seemed to thrive even though cryogenics was creating a firm hold on the industry. This goes to show just how great the actual meats were. OSI Industries is only one of four meat suppliers that works exclusively with McDonald’s. Yes, this speaks volumes to the highest degree. This company thrives off of its capabilities, and it has plenty to capabilities to be proud of.
After purchasing Tyson Foods’ Chicago facility, OSI was able to solidify its grip in the area. This company already has facilities in the Chicagoland area, and this acquisition for $7.4 million will surely bring a great return of investment. Flagship Europe was another huge acquisition, and it produced a wide selection of marinades, dips, sauces and spreads. Then there was the acquisition of BAHO Foods in 2016. This Dutch company produced great tasting snacks, frozen desserts and deli meats. These acquisitions has definitely broadened OSI’s range as well as helped to take it to another level. This is the future of the company, and the future has never looked any better than it does right now.
