The Rise Of OSI Food Solutions

OSI Food Solutions owes its existence to a German by the name Otto Kolschowsky. He started a meat business in Oak Park in Illinois. His hard work and dedication in offering quality meat saw him expand the business to Maywood. In 1928, his business acquired the name Otto & Sons. Gradually, the company’s reputation grew which allowed it to clinch a tender for meat supply with McDonald restaurant in Des Plaines. In 1975, Otto & Sons changed the name to OSI Industries.

OSI Food Solutions has built a name as the premier international supplier of meat and other processed foods.
