The food processing industry has seen a number of great companies come an go over the years. In recent times, however, one company stands out from the rest. OSI Food Solutions first began in 1909, and it appears that this business is here to stay. It was a German immigrant living in the United States who first founded the company, and over the century that it has been in operation it has become of the largest, most well-regarded brands around. This is due in no small part to a partnership with McDonald’s, which resulted in OSI Food Solutions distributing a larger amount of meat products than ever before.
17 different countries are currently home to at least one of OSI Group’s facilities, and the client base that receives it distributions is just as international. OSI has merged with a number of international organizations in recent years, which is one of the reasons it has attained so much power within such a competitive industry. At least 20,000 people receive employment through OSI Food Solutions, and the come from many different nationalities and backgrounds. This company has been recognized thoroughly for its consistent excellence by the British Safety Council, which bestowed upon OSI Food Solutions the Globe of Honor in 2016. Aside from OSI Group, there were only a handful of other companies from around the world who were fortunate enough to become recipients of this award.
Interestingly, OSI Group also won the Globe of Honor in previous years, 2013 and 2015. OSI Food Solutions recently made an important merger deal with another company known as Flagship Europe, which will a beg step in OSI Group’s goal of expanding its business ventures worldwide. OSI’s president, David McDonald, expressed his satisfaction with the Flagship Europe merger, and he is excited about the potential it will open up in the European markets. It will be interesting to see what other developments the company makes in the future as it continues vying for a strong position in the global food processing field.
