From its establishment in the early 20th century in Chicago as a mere butcher shop owned by a German immigrant to expansion in 2018 as the 58th leading United States privately owned companies according to Forbes – It is fair to say that OSI Food Solutions has come far! OSI Group (back then known as Otto and Sons), received its first major break when McDonald’s acquired the production house for the manufacture of its signature patties. This was back in the middle to the late 20th century. Today, OSI Group chiefly produces McDonald’s hamburgers and beef patties worldwide.
From Chicago to all over the world, along with establishments in China, India, Japan, Germany, Italy, and various other countries; OSI Group also has establishments in Toledo, Spain. Recently, the company has introduced a new line of products to increase its chicken production capacity to 24,000 tons (as compared to its production of 12,000 tons in the previous year).
This doubling of production has not only increased the company’s overall production of various meats, including but not limited to chicken, to 45,000 tons but has also created the need for twenty new posts. The need for doubling the production became prominent when the Managing Director, Jose Maria del Rio, noted that compared to a previous steady rate of increased chicken consumption in Spain of six percent, in recent years that figure had shifted to eight percent.
A 22,600 square feet building has been established at the company’s branch in Spain to accommodate this new production line. This building includes supply storage, workers lounge, a product development kitchen and refrigerated rooms for waste container storage.
From its humble beginnings, OSI Group has grown into a company which is worth a calculated 6.1 billion dollars today. The company employs over twenty thousand workers worldwide in their sixty-five production houses in over seventeen countries.
The company has received numerous accolades and recognition for its services and policies. To name one, OSI’s CEO, Sheldon Lavin, was awarded the Global Visionary Award in India in 2018 crediting the company’s substantial development and continuing growth.
