As one of America’s Top 100 Food Companies, OSI Group has earned many awards and garnered impressive recognition for its continued corporate success

As one of America’s top 100 companies in food, OSI Group started from very humble beginnings. Known as Ottos & Sons, Inc., and founded in 1909 in Chicago, Illinois, this small family meat company was the predecessor to OSI Group. Today, OSI Group, which is headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, is a billion dollar company with 20 thousand employees.

In terms of OSI Group’s strategy of brokering key acquisitions in Europe and other regions, in August, 2016, OSI purchased Baho Foods, a Dutch food company. The purchase of Baho Foods was designed to help build a much stronger presence in Europe.

As part of the Baho Foods purchase, OSI added five new subsidiaries to their corporate consortium. Some of these subsidiaries included important facilities and processing plants that were situated in Germany and the Netherlands. The five subsidiaries that were included in the Baho Foods acquisition were Vital Convenience, Bakx Foods, Henri van de Bilt, Gelderland Frischwaren, and Q Smart Life.

OSI Group has garnered many impressive awards and honors for its excellence in the food industry. One of OSI’s subsidiaries that was located in the UK, was given the Globe of Honour award in December, 2016. This award is presented to companies — situated in the United Kingdom — that continually maintain excellence in environmental safety. OSI was also recognized as one of the Top 100 American Food Companies, for its impressive business track record, quality and excellence. This also includes OSI Group’s commitment to eminence, excellence, and innovation in the food industry.

OSI Group provides employment opportunities in many parts of the world. The different regions that OSI Group provides work opportunities in, include Europe (Spain, Germany, Poland, UK, Hungary), the Americas, and the Asia-Pacific sphere. OSI Group noted on their website that they believe strongly in their employees to spur their company’s future success, and that their company is known for their commitment to innovation in the food industry. OSI Group emphasized that they are very committed to an inclusive and diverse staff of workers. OSI Group’s corporate philosophy includes maintaining a family-like culture and environment.
