OSI Group, an American wholesaler of foods, has expanded beyond its initial limits. This company started-out as a tiny meat locker, but it has grown into an international enterprise. OSI Group makes logistics look easy because it offers the services of distribution, processing, development and management. Its global-supply chain has an extensive network that reaches just about every continent. Clients of the wholesaler, includes restaurants, schools, regional supermarkets and national grocery stores. The company has worked with many high-profile clients such as KFC, Burger King, Yum, Papa John’s Pizza, Starbucks and Subway. This list can go on and on for days.
Mergers and acquisitions are all a part of the game, and these business deals can be used for expansion. OSI Group has certainly done its fare share of acquiring other businesses in the past. Tyson Foods, an Arkansas manufacturer of chicken, was acquired back in 2016. Tyson Foods’ Chicago-based plant will add an additional 200,000-square-foot facility for OSI to work with. One of the best things about this deal is that this specific plant is located next to other OSI plants in the Chicagoland area. “We’ll be retaining at least 250 of the plant’s former-employees,” said David McDonald president of OSI. The $7.4 million deal will surely bring a great return of investment.
OSI Group produces a wide variety of food products, including fritters, onions, tomatoes, flatbread, cheese, Tofu, beef patties, meatballs, meatloaf, fresh dough products, turkey products, chili, soups, cucumbers, chicken fried steak, chicken wings, bacon bits and many more. On top of that, the company does a great job with creating unique foods. OSI can take the smallest of ideas and turn them into something practical as well as turn them into something eatable. The future of professional foodservices is looking mighty bright and OSI Group has played a significant role in its success.
