The foodservice industry is thriving as of 2018, but it has been this way for quite some time. Many of your favorite food retailors receive their food products from food providers. At the peak of the industry is OSI Food Solutions, and it’s a food retailer’s paradise. Schools, quick-serve restaurants and neighborhood supermarkets fall under this category. OSI can produce, distribute and sell a myriad of food products, including:
- Pot Roast
- Turkey Products
- Chicken Fried Steak
- Beef Patties
- Chicken Nuggets
- And many more
This is only a small fraction of the products that this company can produce on a regular basis. OSI Food Solutions’ history can be traced back to the timeframe of World War I. This immense food provider was just a tiny meat market back in the day. In the early days, Otto & Sons was its business name. This particular business catered to its community, and its surrounding area. Otto Kolschowski named the business after his family. Arthur and Harry, Otto’s two sons, helped with the daily operations. Thanks to the company’s close relationship with McDonald’s, a high-volume meat plant was used to cater to McDonald’s needs. This meat plant didn’t work with any other outside business during this time.
OSI Food Solutions use high-volume production lines at a number of its plants. At the company’s Spain location, the production for all of the company’s meats have doubled. In China, OSI Food Solutions is the largest producer of poultry in the country. OSI Food Solutions has worked its magic in China for over 20 years, which has resulted in a huge explosion in economics.
