It seems that more so than ever before people around the world are monitoring what exactly it is that they are eating, they want to know where their food is coming from, whether it is the healthiest option, and will turn away from any company they no longer trust. OSI Food Solutions has undergone a lot of growth and change during its 100+ years in business, and the fact that they are still around today proves that they are willing to adapt to what consumers demand and expect from their meat products. As you’ll see, OSI Food Solutions is a name that is hard to avoid when it comes to purchasing meat and they’ve definitely upped their game in recent years, even winning the 2016 Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council.
The roots of this massive company, ranked #58 on the list of Forbes largest private companies, are set in Chicago, Illinois and to this day they are still a staple of the area. In fact, during June of 2016 when another meat company said they were closing up a shop in the Back of the Yards neighborhood of Chicago and were going to fire nearly 500 of their workers, OSI Food Solutions stepped in and purchased the plant for $7.4 million dollars — saving many of the jobs that otherwise would have disappeared. This commitment and partnership with the Chicagoland area dates back many years to the companies founding in 1909 when Otto Kolschowsky opened a meat market in the suburb of Oak Park, Illinois. As you can see, even a century later the OSI Food Solutions team still has a deep bond with the Windy City.
With a presence in over 16 countries and 60 facilities worldwide it is easy to see why OSI Food Solutions is considered the gold standard in the meat processing industry. With a commitment to health and safety of the meat and a willingness to be a good business partner in the city they set up shop in consumers can feel good about eating meat from OSI Food Solutions knowing that the company behind it can be considered ethical by almost any standard.
