OSI Food Solutions offers some of the world’s highest reputed services in food production. Every time customers buy food at fast food joints; chances are that OSI Food produced the food. The company has grown since its inception to over 65 facilities in more than 15 countries across the globe. The company also employs over twenty thousand people in all its branches. When it started, the company was just a meat market in Oak Park. In 1909, the company was founded, and despite growing to be one of the leading food processors in the world, the company still has its headquarters in Oak Park. The company went through a bumpy couple of years with shifts in locations but was soon to be one of the fastest growing companies in the area.
With time, the company earned a good reputation for providing some of the highest quality meats. In 1955, Ray Kroc opened a franchise in Illinois based on a concept that had originated from two Irish brothers. The restaurant Ray Kroc created was named McDonalds. The newly opened restaurant then contracted OSI Food Solutions then known as Otto & Sons to supply ground beef. In 1973, OSI Food Solutions had opened a bigger plant to produce larger volumes of meat per day. Over the next few years, OSI Food Solutions made several partnerships that played a key role in its success. The partnerships led to the company’s expansion to a different location in the country and across the world.
The company expanded into China in 2002 by creating OSI China Beijing. The company’s services can be used by restaurants to aid in the creation of value-added foods that would be better received by their customers. Over the last few years, fast food restaurants have received great reception in the market. Many people prefer to eat refined food as they taste better and offer greater value for money. Fast foods are also cheaper and easier to prepare. These factors are major contributors to the success of OSI Food Solutions and McDonalds. OSI Food is set on a path to ultimate success as their services remain unmatched.
