Here is a story of how a small meat butcher became on the most prominent forces in the food industry. OSI Food Solutions is currently a massive private company. Its net worth is around $6 billion and it is making consistent gains across markets. OSI Food Solutions wasn’t always so dominant, however, their humble beginnings serve as an example of how quality work can eventually explode you into a multinational industry leader.
OSI Food Solutions wasn’t always called OSI. It used to be called Otto & Sons and was a small butcher shop opened in 1909 by a German immigrant. The company existed this way for many years, emphasizing quality, and providing people and businesses across Chicago with quick, cheap, quality product. This gave it renown in Chicago.
Things changed for the small business when McDonald’s came along. When Ray Kroc opened his first McDonalds location in 1955 he made a handshake agreement with Otto & Sons that they would be his supplier of beef products. Of course, we all know the story post this. McDonald’s fantastic production line of foodservice exploded them into worldwide renown. Soon, 1,000s of franchises were opened, and Otto &Sons were still the primary supplier of beef products to the company.
So, Otto & Sons rebranded to OSI Food Solutions and grew along with McDonald’s. Today, they are having trouble keeping up with demand. They service Subway, Papa Johns, and McDonalds among many other fast food service businesses.
In order to keep up with demand OSI has been expanding, and expanding fast. The company recently opened a new facility in the Philippines. The massive 7,500 square foot plant has an annual capacity of 23,000 tons of beef, chicken, and fish products.
Speaking of volume, One of OSIs Spanish factories recently went under a little construction to bolster production capability. The factory used to produce 12,000 tons of chicken and now it produces over 24,000 tons of chicken products. It doesn’t stop there, the factory now produces a total of 40,000 plus tons of product once beef and pork are included.
OSI is growing with the foodservice industry. Food is a booming business. The world is consuming more and more meat each year and OSI is looking to match that growth with its overwhelming ambition and growth. OSIs growth strategy has worked for them so far. It seems only a matter of time before OSI continues its dominance across the globe.
