Today the OSI group is one of the well-known and biggest food providers in the world by having 20,000 employees at 65 facilities and branches located in 17 different countries.
Firstly it was just a corner butcher shop, but with the passage of time and constant hard work, it became the leading multinational food provider in the 20th-century American economic history and set an example of its success story in this modern, globalized economy.
Development and Growth of OSI
In the last decade, OSI group has been growing into a leader of value-added protein products like sausage, pizza, and hamburger patties. It also had branches in different countries like China which are running successfully by adding a wider range of non-meat products. Europe is considered as the main focus for the OSI Group’s growth.
In the year 2010, OSI group had started a new beef production facility in Japan to expand the reach of its Asia-Pacific operations. Moreover, in 2012 it opened two new facilities in India, one in Bangalore and one in Punjab.
OSI group has been partnering with clients to develop new and better products that have now become essential for the OSI’s operations. This kind of communication with retailers on the ground allows OSI to become aware of what its customers want. This act is equally important for consumers as they become more informed and insightful about their food consumption choices.
In addition to this, the immense efforts are also being made by the OSI to focus on the sustainability and environmental impacts of modern food production. Talking about its achievements regarding these efforts it has recently won a number of awards for this act which includes a 2018 Environmental Recognition Award from the North American Meat Institute (NAMI), the 2016 Globe of Honour from the British Safety Council for excellent management of environmental risks and 2016 California Green Business Award.
In short, the OSI has a long history of growth opportunities that have moved a small German butcher shop to grow into one of the world’s leading food providers.
