OSI Doubles Chicken Production Capacity

OSI Food Solutions’ Spain facility recently shared major news that it had doubled the volume of chicken that the plant would be able to produce. The facility added a high-capacity line that will essentially allow OSI to produce twice as many tons of chicken at the same rate. The facility will now have the ability to produce 24,000 tons of chicken each year, which is double the 12,000 tons of chicken the company had previously been able to produce annually. The Spain facility will now be able to produce an estimated 45,000 tons of meat annually, including chicken, pork and beef. The addition of the high-capacity line has also generated new jobs, contributing to helping boost the area’s economy.

Tyson Facility Acquisition

One goal of OSI Food Solutions is to expand its North American footprint. A major concrete step was accomplished when OSI bought Tyson’s Chicago facility. The 200,000 square foot space sold for $7.4 million. Tyson has originally planned to close the plant, which would have put over 450 people out of work. When OSI purchased the facility it offered employment to the majority of those employees.

OSI Industries Was Built From The Ground Up

OSI Industries was established in the early 1900s by a German immigrant named Otto Kolschowsky. Otto came to America with a dream. He began with a meat market. In time Otto Kolshowsky began servicing other food industry businesses in the region. He called his company Otto and Sons. Otto and Sons pioneered meat manufacturing for restaurants and supermarkets in the Chicago area.

By the 1950s Otto and Sons was being run by Otto Kolshowsky’s children. The company was discovered by Ray Kroc, the CEO of McDonalds. Ray Kroc was looking to move his McDonald’s franchises into the Illinois area. He needed a meat distributor that could handle the heavy volume that his company required. Otto and Sons accepted the challenge and became one of several hundred food suppliers for the McDonald’s Empire. Over the years Otto and Sons would separate themselves from other suppliers by implementing a business model that catered to their client’s specific needs. Innovations such as the meat patty cutting machine and cryogenic freezing chambers paved a new way for food franchises to expand and grow. Cryogenic freezing chambers allowed Otto and Sons to maintain a large inventory of meat product and deliver them freshly to their client. The meat patty cutting machine was an innovation that helped the burger restaurants that were exploding throughout the country.

Eventually Otto and Sons became McDonald’s primary meat supplier. The company changed its name to OSI Industries and continued to push forward with their aggressive business strategies. They currently provide different variations of product to other companies such as Pizza Hut, Papa John’s Pizza, Starbucks and Subway. The company maintains factories throughout Europe, United States and Asia. This requires OSI Industries to uphold a uniform level of operational readiness. There is an organized global team that inspects every aspect of OSI operating procedures to ensure that all areas of the company are meeting the required standards.

OSI Industries was ranked the 58th largest privately owned company in the United States of America by Forbes Magazine in 2016. It has expanded its growth throughout the European region by acquiring other major food manufacturing businesses such as Baho Foods and Flagship Food Group.
