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.
