OSI Group’s journey of success is almost a century old. It is currently one of the biggest company with approximately twenty thousand workforces in different countries and sisty five facilities. Its rise to glory is an indication of significant segments of the American economic history.
OSI Group humble beginning dates back to the twentieth when a migrant from Germany moved to Chicago, Illinois. Otto Kolschowsky started a meat shop in 1909 on the western flank of Chicago Ork Park to sell to his community. The trade thrived, and when the first world war was over, it became a wholesale covering other suburbs such as Maywood. Kolschowsky renamed it as Otto and Sons, and it progressed to being a significant part of the Chicago community for many years.
The business witnesses another transformation following the emergence of the first McDonald’s restaurant by Ray Kroc. In 1955, he formed an treaty with the sons of Otto of suppling beef to his fast food outlet. As the Roy business expanded, the Otto sons assumed the vital role as the supplier of the developing McDonald’s eateries.
the process of OSI Group formation begun when Otto and Sons took to the international company. The main aim of Kroc’s franchising archetypal was to avail steady product to its franchises as well as the clienteles, the primary product being the hamburgers. Therefore, Otto and Sons faced the pressure to supply affordable, consumer driven and reliable products that would be transported to distant diners of McDonald.
The association of the two companies flourished to a point where Otto and Sons secured a spot of foremost purveyors when McDonald’s merged its suppliers to only four. In 1973 Otto and Sons constructed an art of state facility that used technologically enhanced machinery for the freezing of patties. The facility was partly dedicated to the McDonald’s while the other was left to function locally under the brand name of Glenmark. The change leads to Otto and Sons becoming a two-track corporation.
Later in 1975, OSI industries were born. The title resembled the transformation the company had gone through for seventy-five years from a mere family establishment to a company that used technologically enabled machines and functioning on manufacturing capacity.
OSI further acquired additional ventures in Mexico, Poland, Austria among other and also introduced bacon and poultry products to some of its plants. The company has continued to grow and expand to Europ winning some award like the 2016 Global of Honour.
