OSI Group is one of the major players in providing custom-food solutions. This company has been around for over 100 years, and it was founded by a German immigrant. At the time, Otto Kolschowski made a name for himself because of his great services, and his great beef products. His company, Otto & Sons, was on top of the world, but it was a tiny meat market. This goes to show just how special the products really were. As word of mouth began to spread, Otto & Sons began to grow thanks to the tremendous amounts of customers and clients. Kolschowski decided to enter the wholesale food market by expanding the company’s food products. It was a great decision and as of today, Otto & Sons has manifested into one of the world’s leading food suppliers.
OSI Group has its headquarters in Aurora, Illinois, but it was once located in the Maywood and Oak Park municipalities. Thanks to its 20,000 employees, the company can produce and distribute a ton of food products in the shortest amount of time. It just so happens to be one of the nation’s largest private companies. In 2011, OSI Group was listed as the nation’s 136th largest private company, and it brought in over $3 billion in revenue. Forbes ranked the company at the 58th position in 2016 as it brought in well-over $6 billion. OSI Group’s growth has been consistent. It produces a large selection of foods such as fresh dough, flatbread, Tofu, chili, meatballs, cooked sausage links, turkey products, desserts, soups, onions, tomatoes, pulled pork, pot roast, cookies, pizza, fish, hotdogs, cheese and other foods.

What more can you ask for, but this only scratches the surface. All in all, OSI Group is at the zenith of the industry thanks to its determination, ethics, passion and perseverance.
