OSI Reaches for international markets with new facilities and acquisitions

When multibillion-dollar companies come to mind, very rarely does OSI group get much of a mention. Despite managing to stay out of the public limelight, the company has grown from humble beginnings nearly 100 years ago to a global powerhouse in industry. Despite staying focused on efficiency and productivity, it’s becoming harder and harder to not notice just how signifcant OSI Group has become in the meat and food preparation industry.

Once you realize the beginning of OSI, the easier it becomes to understand the company’s bright success and future. Starting in 1928, Otto & Sons made a name for themselves by providing consistently high-quality meat products to the Midwest United States. This consistent attention to detail and quality got the attention of Ray Kroc, the innovator behind the global restaurant chain McDonald’s.

OSI started out as one of the hundreds of suppliers to McDonalds, but eventually grew to become their sole provider. By focusing on improving processes, OSI was able to introduce technology into their production line, in some cases developing new processes entirely.

Most notably, OSI group use liquid nitrogen in freezing tunnels in order to prepare their beef patties for coast to coast distribution. While many people created the McDonald’s corporation for their effort to maintain the same level of consistent quality in all 50 states as well as across the globe, much of this success was thanks to the innovation brought forth by the OSI group.

Many business leaders might be tempted to stagnate and keep things consistent for their best client, especially that customer happens to be a global giant, but this is not the case for OSI. The same intuitive thinking and focus on technology have led them to be a supplier for other restaurants across the world.

By acquiring companies such as Flagship Europe, the company has been able to get a foothold in Europe. In addition to mergers and acquisitions, the company is has found themselves able to start brand new facilities around the world. This includes opening companies in the Asia-Pacific region, where work culture and local food demand is drastically different from their native home in Illinois.

Altogether, OSI group is a major reason why Western fast food chains such as Subway, Starbucks, and Pizza Hut can compete internationally. By bringing the same processes and efficiencies from home OSI Group has been able to duplicate of success wherever they may go. There are still many meat and food processing jobs left to be done, it’ll be interesting to see which one the company takes on next.
