OSI Group boasts one of the biggest footprints in the food production industry worldwide. They offer food production services to many companies and restaurants around the world. They focus on offering innovative and high quality solutions in their many divisions in several countries, and now their growth plan continues.
In recent months, the company has sought new locations throughout Europe. They just purchased Baho Foods back in 2016 which is based in the Netherlands and has locations in Germany as well. This subsidiary has relationships with over 18 countries that it services. OSI plans for this to help them increase sales.
Another wise addition to the OSI family is Flagship Europe, which creates various food products like condiments, poultry, and pies. They are looking to Spain to expand into more opportunities. The company also continues to grow in the U.S., having purchased a Tyson factory outside of Chicago that cost them $7.4 million. It was also a kind gesture, saving hundreds of people jobs that would otherwise have lost them.
The large growth of the company is credited to their innovative approach to product and exacting marketing techniques. One of the examples of this is how they connect with local communities that they serve around the world to find out what their taste preferences are. By investing in learning about these local tastes, they are able to meet them. For example, some regions prefer organic and all natural foods while others prioritize the low cost as a priority.
By using standardization processes, OSI has achieved a high quality and safe production environment. They put new technology in their plants whenever possible, doing things like xraying food to ensure that no foreign particles are interfering with safety.
OSI was founded back in 2009, in Aurora, Illinois. It focuses on sourcing, producing, and distributing various food products like meat, pizza, dough, and veggies. The current CEO is Sheldon Lavin. They have over 20,000 employees.
OSI has a strong tradition of positivity, creativity, and passion in creating their unique food solutions for clients and consumers. They have over 65 plants in 17 countries across 4 continents. Large clients include McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Subway, and Starbucks. OSI has won numerous awards for their achievements in health and safety. And in addition to safety and profits, the company excels in helping the community. They have partnered with Ronald McDonald House and Feeding America in the recent past.
