If you’ve enjoyed the taste of food products offered by Subway, Starbucks, Papa John’s Pizza, Wendy, or Pizza Hut, just to name a few, then you have been introduced to OSI Industries, LLC. In 2004 OSI Industries came under the auspices of its parent company, the OSI Group, LLC. OSI Industries, LLC conducts business under this name in their North American (U.S. and Canada) manufacturing plants. It is one of the world’s largest food processing companies that manufactures and sells healthy, quality food products to brand name and private name retail and food service industries.
OSI had its beginnings in 1909 as a family meat market, but has since grown exponentially by acquiring North American, European, Asian-Pacific, Africa, and South American food plants, distribution companies, factories, and processing centers. OSI Industries is based where it began, in the state of Illinois. It produces high-quality protein (meat) and chicken laden products along with dessert inspired products, sauces, cheese, vegetables and much more through their varied U.S. and global food processing acquisitions.
OSI Industries and The OSI Group is one of the largest privately held billion-dollar companies based in the United States. OSI works under a variety of names in foreign countries. Wherever OSI takes over facilities, it provides lots of jobs for the people in that area and greatly expands their production efforts. The success of OSI is due to its innovative leadership. The executives are Messrs. Sheldon Lavin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and David G. McDonald, President, and Chief Operating Officer.
Mr. Lavin states that OSI started with treating its employees like family and that premise has not changed today, which is why there are hardly any turn-overs at the company and generational family members end up working there. OSI Industries operates their facilities under the safety sustainability principles.
Their processing equipment, refrigeration, and other machinery are all energy efficient and environmentally friendly. OSI Industries doesn’t just supply our favorite eating establishments with deliciousness, but the company also gives quality food to local charities and food banks wherever their facilities are located. The company also supports animal rights by holding workshops and training classes for this initiative.
