The Expansion of OSI Group

One usually hears the saying, “You can’t climb the ladder with your hands in your pockets”. Most people hear this saying and others throughout their lives; however, few feel as though they are successfully climbing. There are few people in the world that are considered “To have reached the top”. And those people are celebrities, public figures, politicians and other people relative to that nature. OSI Group is not a name commonly heard and yet, the story of this company: OSI’s story is the perfect story about starting small and growing until an impact is made internationally.
It is clear that the story begins in the early 20th century in Chicago, Illinois. OSI Group was at the time a small butcher shop… a dream that would completely change.
The change started in 1940 when Ray Kroc partnered with Otto & Sons (OSI Group’s name at the time). Otto & Sons took this opportunity with McDonald’s to be first supplier delivering ground beef. This may seem like a minuscule detail but at the time, the meet was delivered freshly cut and there was no other way to receive it.
As everything in life grows, more is expected and once Ray Kroc bought the company: McDonald’s, Otto & Sons was about to grow also. Otto & Sons was now about to be the supplier of every McDonalds opened at the time and all future stores. Their name was then changed to OSI to coordinate with the new global demand. But the company name was not the only thing to change.
“To be in denial about change is futile. Adapting to change ensures our future. Quickly adapting to change gives us a competitive advantage over those who do not,” said by McDonald himself. It may have occurred that fresh meat delivered globally probably was not the greatest idea. And so OSI would start flash freezing their food which meant the food goes through a cryogenic food process. This allowed OSI to help McDonald’s create a consistent product.
As the article, “David McDonald: From Iowa Farm to a Global Leadership Position” says, “OSI has continued its steady march of growth”. OSI Group has business with McDonald’s, Baho Food, Flagship Europe, and the company that owns Tyson Foods. OSI Group has climbed the ladder and though the company has reached the top, OSI Group will continue to climb.

Different Meats and The Doubling of Production Capacity By OSI Food

One of the most commonly consumed meats by people is chicken. One of the reasons that chicken is consumed so much is that people are looking for ways to get protein without eating a lot of excess fats. For one thing, chicken has a ton of protein that people can enjoy. This is a lot different from the beef and similar items that people often get from fast food. Given that chicken is one of the most popular forms of meat, OSI Food group is doing everything it can to increase the production of chicken for companies to use.

One of the best things about chicken is that people can do things with chicken that they can also do with beef. Where people often get a lot of enjoyment from hamburgers, they can also get some of that enjoyment from chicken as well. The only thing is chicken tastes even better than beef. Then they consume less calories from chicken compared to beef. This is only one example of the benefits of chicken over beef. There are plenty of other benefits that come with chicken as people make it a point to regularly consume type of meat.

OSI food group can also prepare chicken in ways that are innovative. One of the best things about the taste of chicken from OSI is that it is an indicator that the chicken has been prepared in the most humane and merciful way. This means that there have been no methods of torture involved in preparing the chicken for different processing companies. Therefore, people can enjoy some of the benefits that come from the chicken. They can do this without having to deal with issues with their conscience. Given that OSI has doubled the production capacity of chicken, people can enjoy chicken even more.
