The Long Path of the OSI Group

The Aurora, Illinois-based OSI Group is a privately-owned holding company of meat processors. The story of the OSI Group starts almost 75 years prior to its founding. It was in 1909 that German immigrant, Otto Kolschowsky first started a meat market in Oak Park Illinois. By 1928, the expanding company had moved to Maywood, Illinois and was renamed Otto & Sons. In 1955, it made it big after very fortuitously partnering with the now iconic fast food chain, McDonald’s. It may not come as a surprise to learn that business relationship did so well that McDonald’s soon became their primary business into the late 60s.

In 1973, Otto & Sons spawned a branch called Glenmark. This was an independent meat company that was unaffiliated with McDonalds. In 1975, Glenmark changed its name to OSI Industries. OSI Group, as it is now called, today has meat company investments all over the world. It also boasts constant partnerships with the most popular and the most respected establishments in the food industry. It remains the one of the world’s largest privately held food providers.

OSI Group is renowned for its team of top knowledgeable food experts. It is also very respected for its extreme food safety and quality practices. These practices are also fully aligned with all governmental regulations and environmental-friendly procedures. And they only partner with those groups who share in the values behind these practices. The team of OSI is committed to being just that, a team that seek for excellence in meat distribution.
