OSI Food Solutions is one of the top food processing companies in the world. It was a regional player in the state of Illinois from 1909 up through the middle of the 1970s. In 1955 they became the very first supplier of fresh ground beef to what was then a fledgling company, McDonald’s. They still continue to supply beef to McDonald’s restaurants around the world and also have many other clients such as Subway, Burger King, and Starbucks among others. In addition to beef they also now supply pork and poultry products, sauces, marinades, and other foods.
As a very adaptable company, OSI Food Solutions can customize what it offers clients in order to meet their individualized needs. They can match a client’s exact specifications and offer a very dependable and processed food supply chain. They also offer great culinary skills and knowledge of flavors around the globe. Their factories include test kitchens where they research new recipes and come up with innovative solutions for their clients and consumers.
Over the years OSI Food Solutions has won a number of awards including the 2018 United States Environmental Award. This award was given to them by the North American Meat Institute and was given due to their dedication to sustainability. Among other recent awards this company has earned is the UK’s Globe of Honour Award for 2016. In order to win this award, they had to demonstrate complete commitment to environmental management from the factory floor on up to their board of directors. This was awarded to them by the British Safety Council.
In recent years this company has been concentrating on its expansion in both Europe and Asia. In the past few years, they have acquired a few European food processing companies including Flagship Europe (since renamed Creative Foods Europe), Hynek Schlachthof GmbH, and Baho Foods. These acquisitions not only expanded their meat production capacity but also added on new product categories they offer to their clients. In order to effectively manage their European operations, OSI Food Solutions also opened a new regional office in Gersthofen, Germany.
