Sheldon expands the wings of OSI with green innovations

OSI Group has gained itself an impressive and unique history over the 100 years it has been in operation. OSI Group was started in the year 1909 by Otto Kolschowsky as a humble and small butcher shop and meat center in Chicago. It was at that time known as Otto & Sons; it is nowadays so big and has acquired many branches all across the globe in more than 65 locations and with many partners all around the world. The current CEO is Sheldon Lavin. OSI Group is a company based on food safety, sustainability, and green practices. Sheldon plans to grow the business by market focused methods following that the company’s latest growth included several acquisitions.

Otto and sons spontaneously grew from the year 1955 when the company was chosen as the first supplier of hamburger by the McDonald. To suffice this order, the plant opened a particular branch wholly dedicated to serving the McDonald in the year 1973. Sheldon came overboard in the 1970’s and partnered with the two brothers, the sons of Otto Kolschowsky. Sheldon stirred them up and created the global linkages as the company proliferated. It is in the year 1975 that the firm’s name changed to OSI Group. By the 80’s, the company had spread its wings into Germany, Austria, Taiwan, Brazil, and Taiwan in addition to opening two new branches in the US. Afterward, in the 90’s, OSI Group entered into Mexico, China, Philippines, and Poland as it increased in beefing up its supplies in the US.

OSI Group vigorously expanded its wings into many continents during the new millennium, especially on its poultry product. OSI Group’s group expansion burst more in the 2000’s as the company involved itself in the green products as well. It was through an acquisition in China whereas another acquisition in Australia brought in the company the beef industry.

OSI Industries Is A Simble Of American Success

OSI Industries opened its doors as a meat market in the early 1900s. It was founded by an immigrant named Otto Kolschowsky. Otto had a specific vision for his company. He named it Otto and Sons and proceeded to establish himself in the Chicago area. Over the years Otto adjusted his business model by providing service to food industries. This service included restaurants and supermarkets. Eventually Otto turned the business over to his sons and they continued the companies reputation of excellence.

As the 1950s approached, the McDonald’s Organization was expanding across the country. They were looking to establish themselves in Illinois and needed a meat supplier that they can trust. Otto and Sons was called upon to handle the task. Their relationship with the McDonald’s Organization blossomed over the years due to the many innovations that Otto and Sons brought to the meat manufacturing industry. They introduced cryogenic freezing chambers. This was a method of supplying large amounts of inventory without damaging it and delivering the product to McDonald’s in a workable fashion. Otto and Sons also introduced meat patty cutting machine, which catered to their most important client at the time.

Otto and Sons changed its name to OSI Industries and became the primary meat supplier to the McDonald’s Organization. OSI Industries expanded over the years to accommodate several other restaurant chains. Pizza Hut, Papa John’s Pizza, Starbucks and Subway are all clients of OSI Industries. The company has factories all over the world and operates with several different other food manufacturing companies. It allows OSI Industries to keep a diverse interest in food manufacturing, which helps them remain on cutting edge of industry.

OSI Industries acquired other companies such as Tyson Foods, Baho Foods and Flagship Food Group in order to expand its influence in a market that continues to grow.
