In this day and age, OSI Industries has proved itself in being the most prominent food service providers in the universe. It has twenty thousand operating personnel distributed in sixty-five centers located all over seventeen countries. The company was started by Otto Kolschowsky who was based in Chicago, Illinois. It was initially named Otto and Sons due to it being a family business. It rose steadily with the various business transactions it had with Ray Kroc who opened a chain of restaurants called McDonald’s. The company was the sole supplier of meat to the McDonald’s Corporation.
After twenty years Otto and Sons changed its name to OSI Industries with the continued supply of its food to McDonald’s. Later on the introduction of the cryogenic food processing that used liquid nitrogen to freeze their food hastily opened the door for the company to expand its services. This also made the company become among the leading four suppliers to McDonald’s.
Later on, OSI Industries transitioned from not only being a major supplier to McDonald’s, with various facilities catered to the supply and production of their food but also towards other clients. It is currently priding itself with making sales of over six billion United States dollars as of two years ago. These other ventures include a partnership with K and K foods that is based in Taiwan which saw the start of the company’s Asia branch. Other branches include the GenOSI transaction that was developed in 1990 as well as the WFOE that was started two years later in China. China’s negotiated plan to enter the World Trade Organization saw the company catapult to the international stage as it would rise and be known all over the world.
At this point, OSI Industries had gotten various clients in China such as Yum and Starbucks as well as Burger King and Papa John’s. Subway was also another client as well as Saizeriya. The company’s growth was also evident in the US with deal with Nation Pizza and Foods that was started in 1994. This meant the development of a new plant that would cater for the new food products such as bacon and sausages. This plant was based in Oakland, Iowa.
The company continues to grow exponentially. It has branched to poultry as well as producing non-meat products for their clients and customers. It has various connections in countries like Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America as well as some parts of Europe.
