OSI Industries Escalates Its Global Reach

For more than a century OSI Industries has derived more than a few benefits from its reputation for making quality meats available on a global basis.

Otto Kolschowsky founded the family meat market known as Otto & Sons USA in 1909 near Chicago, Illinois. The company, which changed its name to OSI Industries in 1975, has advanced over the years to become a food products leader with more than 65 facilities in 17 countries worldwide.

Its strategic growth takes in expansion in Australia, Germany, Spain, Brazil, India, Asia Pacific and more. It also set up a joint venture in the Philippines and Mexico.

Under the guidance of OSI Industries president David McDonald and Chief Executive Officer Sheldon Lavin, the company recently broadened its presence in Europe with the acquisition of UK-based food supplier Flagship Europe.

Flagship Europe, which was renamed Creative Foods Europe in January, supplies the United Kingdom food service market with frozen poultry, condiments, pies and more.

Creative Foods Europe chief executive Russell Maddock said in a statement that the acquisition furnishes the company with the capability to approach an increased number of resources that are owned and operated by OSI. He pointed out Creative Foods Europe will also have a larger presence in the industry and that joining OSI was an “exciting and progressive development.”

OSI Industries also expanded its operations with the build up of a high capacity production line to its present Toledo, Spain venture, doubling production capacity of processed chicken, beef and pork products from 12,000 tons to 24,000 tons a year and adding new jobs as well. The new addition added 22,600 square feet of working space and new facilities for supplies storage, shipping and receiving and service areas and a new surveillance system.

OSI Industries has been named as one of the Top 100 Food Companies in the United States for meeting the highest quality standards and for exceeding the challenges of its customers.

What’s more, in 2016 OSI Industries was listed as #58 on the Forbes list of largest private companies. And Food Engineering Magazine named OSI Industries to its List of the World’s Top 100 Food & Beverage Companies in 2017.

The multi-billion dollar food manufacturer, OSI Group, which operates in the United States under the name OSI Industries, supplies meat patties, hot dogs, chicken, fish, frozen entrees, pizza and more.
