What started as a neighborhood market in 1909 is now one of America’s top 100 companies. OSI Food Solutions rose from the market Otto Kolschowski opened in Oak Park, Illinois to a company with over twenty thousand employees and annual sales of more than $6.1 billion.
Today the company has more than sixty-five facilities and operates in seventeen countries providing an array of quality custom food products to retail and food service companies. With facilities in China, they are a supplier to many western fast food chains doing business there, including, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, and Subway.
Furthermore, OSI Food Solutions is continuing to expand operations. In recent years they have acquired BAHO Foods, Flagship Europe, as well as a Tyson Food Plant in Chicago, Illinois. This expansion has not only helped the company provide better career and employment opportunities, but it also saved 250 jobs at the Tyson Food Plant. Another area of development occurred in Spain. Last year the company doubled the capacity of processed chicken products to 24,000 tons annually by adding a high-capacity production line to the facility Toledo, Spain.
In 2016, OSI Food Solution was awarded The British Safety Council’s Globe of Honor. The Globe of Honor is given to organizations that demonstrate excellence in environmental management throughout their organization. The 2016 award was the third such award given to OSI Food Solutions, having received the Globe of Honor in 2015 and 1013.
It is no surprise that OSI Food Solutions is among America’s top 100 companies. They have over 100 years of experience and are an industry leader in food service. They have a reputation for high-quality products and have won awards for their commitment to the environment. With more than twenty thousand employees, facilities in seventeen countries and annual sales of $6.1 billion, OSI Food Solutions is now an industry leader in producing quality food products for companies worldwide.
