OSI Industries is an American company that was founded more than a century ago. Otto Kolschowsky, a European immigrant, was only in the United States for a few years when he opened a neighborhood butcher shop at the turn of the 20th century. The company has operated in Illinois since its inception in 1909. Their headquarters are located in Aurora, IL. The organization is now multinational, and they have facilities in 17 countries.
The company continues to operate under the highest standards that were originally set by Otto. Mr. Sheldon Lavin has been with OSI Industries since 1975, and he currently serves as its Chief Executive Officer. The company has a strong commitment to sustainable food production in all of its 65 facilities. Over the years, the company had faced the economic challenges of the Depression and two world wars, and it came through it as a strong and thriving organization. New cutting-edge technology has changed the way food is now produced and distributed to its customers. OSI Industries grew to become a leading manufacturer and distributor in food industry, and they take that responsibility very seriously.
The newest in food production techniques are constantly being developed and adapted by OSI Industries. OSI and the food industry as a whole face many global challenges. Today, more than ever before, innovative methods of sustainable and eco-friendly production are a necessity as well as a corporate social responsibility. The company has adapted the latest technologies for food production in their award-winning facilities. They employ 20,000 people worldwide to ensure the highest quality and freshness of every item that leaves the OSI plants.
The company has supplied the McDonald’s restaurants since the 1950s. When Ray Kroc opened the first of his hamburger restaurants, it was in Illinois. Otto’s sons were running the family business, and the largest meat company became the beef supplier to McDonald’s. Arthur and Harry Kolschowsky were awarded the new account in the mid-1950s, and McDonald’s remains a customer of OSI Industries over 60 years later.
