Would you believe it if I told you that there’s a food processing company that has been around for 100 years? Would you believe that this company is headquartered in the state of Illinois? OSI Food Solutions is the name of the food processor, and it has been able to withstand the test of time. Being a food wholesaler isn’t easy at all. There are a lot of mechanics that goes on behind the scenes that the public doesn’t get a chance to witness. If all of the food processors in the world shut down, then society would come crashing to a sudden halt.
OSI Food Solutions has been able to succeed throughout the decades because it has evolved with the times. This company has progressively changed with each generation. On the other hand, OSI has progressively changed to meet the demands of society. In its early days, the company specialized in the production and selling of meat products. By doing so, the company was able to build long-standing relationships that have played a crucial role in its success today. McDonald’s, a popular hamburger chain, just so happened to be one of the wholesaler’s top clients. OSI Food Solutions has even built a facility that caters to the production of hamburgers. In 1973, this particular facility was built in West Chicago.
Cryogenics has also helped the company to expand even more because the meats could travel for farther distances. This flash-freeze technology was heaven-sent as the company exploded with more proficient cost reduction. OSI Food Solutions’ Spain factory has more than doubled its production of beef and chicken. The company spent up to $17 million on a high-capacity production line, and this addition has made a world of difference. In 2017, OSI Food Solutions processed more than 45,000 tons of beef, pork and chicken.
