About OSI Food Solutions and how it Started
The OSI Food Solutions is a meat processing company based in America that was founded in 1909 at Chicago, United States. It is an international company that has its presence in over 17 countries where it operates over 65 facilities. The company was started when a German immigrant, Otto Kolschowsky, who started a family business of selling meat in Illinois shortly after he moved to the United States in 1907. Kolschowsky quickly expanded his business into a wholesale meat supply to Chicago before establishing the fully fledged company in 1928 that was known as Otto and Sons. Besides, over the years the company built its clientele through supplying quality meat to the market that would see them have one of their main customers as the McDonalds in 1955.
