In the early 1900’s German immigrant Otto Kolschowsky, established his own meat market in Illinois. Years later he would upgrade to a wholesale meat trade relocating to Maywood a city suburb in Chicago. It was named Otto &Sons. Through the years it created a good reputation for its fresh quality in the meat trade but it wasn’t until 1955 that it established a solid deal with then aspiring company, Mcdonalds. This was the start of the company’s huge success. Within the next decades the company went on to expand as Mcdonald’s success grew throughout the nation, and by this time it had gained national poularity in the meat trade business. The company went on to open several units along with expanding its trade with restaurants and grocery markets, as well as formally changing its name to OSI Group Industries.
More recently, the company was awarded with the prestigious 2016 Globe of Honour. The committee awards this prize to organizations which demonstrate excellence in environmental management from top to bottom, as well as achieve a five star rating in the British safety council. The award was presented at a luncheon held ata Draper’s Hall on November 25, 2016. Currently OSI Group is working even harder at improving their employee and career satisfaction. Ranging from benefits and full on careers, the company strives to create an environment that provides stimulating and rewarding opportunities.
Today the company remains on top of the food trade market providing stores, restaurants, and chains with fresh meats and foods. Recently OSI has bought the Tyson food plant in Chicago for 7.4 million dollars, along with several others. It was also named one of America’s Top 100 food companies.
