Bringing taste to the world, the OSI Group is on a mission. This is a world wide company on the cutting board edge (yes, I said “…cutting board edge…”) of food production for the entire planet. With a fine pallet consisting of nearly every food group that humans can enjoy, the OSI professionals have taken it to the next level when it comes to feeding the masses.
Expansion in Europe, for instance, has added spice and flare to the OSI Group menu of meals and magnificent morsels. The great acquisitions and mergers such as Baho Food in the Netherlands and Germany adds the historic tastes of those regions. These are areas where food was invented! Spain has joined the team and has increased poultry production to higher levels, and the wonderful culture of Spain and the unique population is adding to the OSI Group family in delicious ways.
Such a wide scope around Earth requires a wide range of professions and skills. With over 20,000 employees, each one different and dedicated, the OSI team is committed to bringing great food to each and every client and customer. Reaching this level of success does not happen automatically. The leadership of top management and the loyalty of the employees are critical. There is a standard formula for any business to reach success, and it is rooted in very hard work and a rock solid product and/or service. Though the recipe for success is well known, it is not an easy road. The OSI Group has been working very hard for well over a century, and there is no indication of slowing.
The story begins in Chicago in the early 1900’s with an immigrant from Germany named Otto Kolschowsky. He started his own small meat market and never stopped. Today, Otto’s efforts are feeding the world. Otto has indeed made his mark in history. In fact, the “O” in OSI Group is for Otto. It may not be provable, but good ol’ Otto & Sons quite possibly provided ever McDonald’s hamburger patty since the beginning! The famous Big Mac and Quarter Pounder are indeed Otto’s legacy.
The golden arches of McDonald’s are still as popular as ever, however, the people of Earth are evolving and the individual tastes around the world are becoming more and more discerning. OSI is making a concerted effort to meet the demands of the diverse tastes of every continent. Bon appetite’!
