Ingenuity, Innovation & Inspirational: OSI Group

There are plenty of food suppliers around the world that handles the needs of the public. These businesses provide food products for a number of retailors. Did you know that many of your favorite restaurants and retailors receive their food products from the same food supplier? That’s right! The only thing different about these products is their ingredient lists. Just by manipulating the ingredients to some degree, a food supplier can create a unique taste of food. One of the very best food suppliers in the world is located right in the United States. This company just happens to be OSI Group.

OSI Group is one of the largest privately held companies in the U.S. Its headquarters is based in beautiful Aurora, Illinois, but it has numerous other state-of-the-art facilities that stretch across the globe. OSI Group has been in business for more than a century thanks to its great food products, and its wide range of capabilities. Every aspect of the game is being covered here. This includes sourcing, development, processing, management and shipping. It would be hard trying to find another similar company that can do this on a consistent basis. One of the biggest reasons for such success is that the company focuses on business acquisitions. Acquisitions has helped OSI to expand beyond its domestic borders. In 2016, Tyson Foods was acquired for $7.4million. This acquisition was for the Tyson’s Southside plant in Chicago. By merging into one, OSI Group has solidified its infrastructure even more. Also in 2016, OSI Group acquired Flagship Europe. This is a European food provider that specializes in marinades, dressings, mayonnaise, sauces and frozen meats. Strengthening its position in the foreign marketplace has begun and OSI is now able to reach untapped markets.

Who would have ever thought that a small meat market would turn into this huge display of brilliance. This company is setting a blueprint of success for all to follow. Otto Kolschowski’s dream has certainly manifested into a reality, but who knows what OSI Group has in store for the future.
