OSI Industries is the epitome of foodservice excellence. This particular food provider has hard working employees, has supreme leadership and has decades of experience. Many of today’s top food retailors work exclusively with OSI, including Subway, Yum, Burger King, KFC and Papa John’s Pizza. Ray Kroc, former-CEO of McDonald’s, forged a lifelong relationship with OSI’s founders. The company became one of McDonald’s four main suppliers of meat. When the flash-freezing technology of cryogenics came into fruition, it opened up a new avenue of success for all food service providers. Cryogenics gave these companies a way to preserve the freshness of the meats for longer periods of time.
Back when OSI Industries was known as Otto & Sons, it was only specializing in the selling of high-quality meats. This corner butcher shop was located in Oak Park, Illinois. As the business began to grow, its new headquarters would relocate to Maywood, Illinois. Once OSI Industries hit the wholesale scene, the company experienced astounding growth. Foods such as pizza, panini, cooked sausage links, desserts, cucumbers, onions, pasta, cheese, soups, chili, fruits, flatbread, pot roast, Tofu and others can be ordered and purchased on a consistent basis. This is just a tiny fraction of what the company has to offer.
As of today, OSI Industries is basically the top food provider in the world. Its supply chain is very extensive as it flows through numerous continents. Some of the company’s factories are located in Ukraine, in Japan, in Canada, in China, inHungary, in India, in the United Kingdom and in many other nations. OSI Industries is the standard by which all other food providers are measured because it has set new trends in foodservices, it has raised the bar extremely high, and it has easily changed the current status quo.
