Why OSI Food Solution is the Best Globally
OSI Food Solutions is not only the leading provider and supplier of quality food products but also exemplary in providing solutions to matters relating to the food industry. The company started off from a humble beginning in Chicago Illinois 1909 by a German butcher by the name Kolschowsky. After its succession by his sons Arthur and Harry who named it, Otto & Sons saw a regular retail meat shop transform to a wholesale meat supplier. The company was later rebranded OSI Group in 1975 and from then on it has become the number one food processing company. The company has established its presence in more than 17 different countries with 65 facilities and with more than 20,000 employees, all this to ensure that the company’s operations run smoothly and effectively.
One of the factors that have transpired for the great success of the OSI Group is because of its extensive application of technological innovation that makes its operations easy and more affordable. The flash freezing process which rapidly freezes food products by the use of liquid nitrogen enables food to be transported over long distances without getting spoilt. The recent increasing demand for chicken patties and nuggets has posed a challenge to the OSI Food Solution Company as more chicken products are required to sustain the growing demand. OSI Food Solutions are the leading suppliers of big food restaurants such as McDonald’s, Starbucks, Burger King and many others.
For OSI Food Solution to double their chicken products, they approached the Baho Food Company in the Netherlands and acquired it. Baho food held its operations in, and After OSI acquired it, they were able to distribute more food and meat products. The OSI Group also acquired Tyson Food Plant which is located in Chicago. This ensures that meat products are manufactured, packaged and supplied to their respective destinations. Another reason why OSI group decided to acquire both Tyson and Baho was also for the sole purpose of expanding and making their presence known to the European countries.The OSI Food Solutions have received many prestigious awards one of them being the Globe of Honor Award which was given to them by the British Safety Council in 2016 for their environmentally friendly efforts.
