OSI Group has managed to maintain the lead as the premier producers and distributors of value-added proteins and other assorted food products to more than seventeen countries across the world. Rising to the top position wasn’t easy for OSI Group. What fascinates many people is how the company has managed to remain at the top of the American food industry for over a century.

A look at Otto & Sons in the 1900s

Just like many other multinational companies, OSI Group started out as a small food outlet in Chicago, mainly supplying fresh meat to the locals. The small Chicago-based butcher shop attracted more customers and consequently increased their supplies to cater for the growing demand.

However, the Otto & Sons Company got a breakthrough when it was contracted by the McDonalds to supply meat and other products to their outlets in Chicago and several other States in the U.S. Otto & Sons was again forced to expand their production capacity to cater for the bigger market.

What catapulted OSI Group to the top position?

Since its inception in the 1900s, OSI Group has had a great appetite for growth. Throughout the years, the company has always been keen to spot new market opportunities and grab them immediately as they pop up. The main reason for OSI’s growth is having great and visionary leadership, right from the founder of the company.

Much of OSI Group’s massive growth has happened in the last three decades. Coincidentally, this is the time the current president of OSI Group, David McDonald joined the company.

David successfully completed all the company’s projects in time, leaving an impressive track record.
