OSI Group is a reputable privately held food company that provides assorted value-added food products to retail food organizations and other key players in the food service industry as well as managing food chains. OSI Group is globally recognized with over 65 facilities spread in 17 countries, which guarantees its clients support and consistency in supply anywhere in the globe to help them grow their businesses. Headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, OSI Group was founded in 1909 by Otto Kolschwsky as a small meat shop. The management moved down to his sons and entered multiple strategic partnerships, which has seen its growth to what it is today.
In a bid to expand its operations and increase production, OSI Group acquired convenience food, deli meats, and snacks manufacturer, Baho Foods last year. Baho has five subsidiary companies that include Gelderland Frischwaren, Henri van de Bilt, Vital Convenience, Q Smart Life, and Bakx Foods as well as two processing plants in Germany and Netherlands. The firm operations are spread in 18 European companies, which translate to a wider presence in Europe for OSI Group. The two companies complement each other and enjoy combined strength in meeting their clients ever changing needs. OSI Group also acquired a food processing facility and a warehouse belonging to Tyson Foods in Chicago. The facility’s location is near OSI’s facility, which provides the much-needed infrastructure to meet the supply needs of their ever-growing clientele base as well as grow the business even further.
Throughout its existence, OSI Group has always been keen in the matters of environment management. This unwavering commitment made the firm be among the 18 organizations that were awarded a Globe of Honour last year by British Safety Council. OSI emerged the winner after it satisfied an independent panel of its undoubted efforts in environment management.
