The Future of OSI Food Solutions

OSI Food Solutions is the quintessential food processor because it covers a wide array of services, and it offers a wide array of products. This global food processor got its start as a local butcher shop in Oak Park, Illinois. Otto Kolshowski, and his sons operated the business with success, and it became an important community fixture. Chicago’s shores was ground zero for mass immigration at the turn of the 20th century. These hardworking immigrants laid the foundation for successful, local businesses. This family-owned butcher shop would eventually transform into a food wholesaler, and this is when the local butcher shop made its biggest impact.

The wholesale game was booming for OSI Food Solutions during this time. The company was now headquartered in Maywood, Illinois. Thanks to the strong ambition of its leaders, the company decided to expand even more. By doing so, OSI would be taking on more day-to-day challenges. Growth was absolutely inevitable at this point in time as OSI would move its location to Aurora, Illinois. The company’s supply chain had grown by leaps and bounds as well as its products. High-profile brands were teaming up with the famous food processor, and bigger contracts were being fulfilled to the highest degree. OSI Food Solutions had finally made it to a global level. Some of the biggest changes came when the Kolschowski’s stepped away from daily business practices. A new team of leaders would fill the roles, and the new leaders took the company to an unprecedented level.

From 2011 to 2016, OSI Food Solutions had doubled its generated income from $3 billion to $6 billion. The company was listed on the prestigious Forbes list by being one of America’s biggest private companies. Factories and facilities were sprouting in new territories across the US and abroad.
