Published / by Alice / 1 Comment on How & Why Is OSI Group A Top 100 Company In America

The title of this article speaks for itself. To be a top 100 company or any company that’s at the pinnacle of success, the organization has to be delivering high quality services and products. It’s plain and simple and there’s no way around it.

The U.S. is full of heavy hitters especially when it comes to the top 100 and Aurora, Illinois is home to one of the very best. This company has revolutionized “food solutions” thanks to it’s wide variety of products and services. The company has also been around for over a century and it has years of experience under it’s belt. That company just so happens to be known as “OSI Group.”

OSI Group was once known as a Otto & Sons, which was a small family meat market. The name Otto & Sons come from it’s German founder Otto kolschowski and this small Mid-Western business produced and sold the freshest of quality meats. More and more client began to deal with the company on a regular basis, which caused it to grow dramatically over the years. McDonald’s was one of the first high profile clients as it received much of it’s tasty fresh beef from the company. Today, OSI Group has grown into one of the country’s largest privately held companies that hosts over 20,000 employees. Not bad for a small town meat market.

Mergers and Acquisitions are all apart of business and OSI has it’s fair share of them. Tyson Food Plant, BAHO Foods, and Flagship Europe have been acquired by this giant, which will open up new doors to foreign markets that were pretty much locked. This is business 101 and OSI Group has personified it the best. This is why the company is in the top 100.
