OSI Group is an American food company that has facilities in countries all over the world. It is headquartered in Aurora, Illinois and was founded in Chicago by a German Immigrant named Otto Kolschowsky. Many people have eaten food that originated from one of OSI’s facilities and probably don’t even know it. The company offers a variety of product meats, other protein items, deli foods, snacks, and so much more. OSI is known for its ability to offer its customers customized food options and does so by employing chefs who focus on creating menus that serve specific regions of the world.
OSI Group is led by its president and chief operating officer, David McDonald, and its chief executive officer, Sheldon Lavin. Combined, the two men have more than put OSI on the map; they have made it one of the 100 American top food companies. OSI employs more than 20,000 people and has a very diverse workforce. The company is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate for any legal reason, whatsoever. OSI Group takes pride in the fact that it encourages its employees to think like a business entrepreneurs, and the company also treats every single worker like a member of its own family.Recently, OSI Group has been ramping up its expansion efforts, and one of the moves it made was to purchase a former Tyson Foods facility in Chicago.
The facility is located in the south side of the city and will help to provide stability and infrastructure for another nearby plant.The purchase came in at $7.4 million, and OSI offered employment to a number of factory workers that were set to lose their jobs as the Tyson Foods facility closed down.OSI Group also recently purchased a controlling stake in Baho Food, which is a Dutch company that has subsidiaries in the Netherlands and Germany. The company offers its best food products to many European countries and is expected to increase its offerings in the future. OSI also acquired Flagship Europe, which offers its customers pies, sous vide products, frozen poultry, and condiments. It is expected that the purchase will help the company to reach more European markets, and this will continue to fulfill its mission of expansion.
