Pioneer, Leader & Innovator: OSI Industries

OSI Industries, one of the world’s leading food processors, has dominated the scene for up to a century. This Aurora-based company offers a plethora of products and services. It serves many diverse retailors, including supermarkets, schools and dining establishments. So, what type of foods can be ordered? The answer to this question could go on and on for quite some time, but here is a short list of food products below.

• Tofu

• Fruit

• Cooked Sausage Links

• Fritters

• Hotdogs

• Chicken Nuggets

• Steak

• Beef Patties

• Pasta

• Flatbread

• Pizza

Over the past decade, OSI Industries has grown at a considerable rate. The company has gone through many changes, and the changes have brought forth expansion. In 2016, OSI went on an acquisition blitz by acquiring stake in other foodservice providers. One of its major acquisitions was forthe Dutch company BAHO Food. BAHO Food is privately held, and it serves a wide variety deli meats, snack foods and convenience foods. David McDonald, president of OSI, has stated that “adding BAHO Food to our portfolio has broadened our presence throughout Europe.” This notion is very accurate as OSI Industries can now serve untapped markets.

Here in the United States, OSI has acquired stake in Tyson Foods. The Arkansas-based chicken supplier is huge, and it already has a strong following. OSI Industries was able to snag one of Tyson’s Chicago-based plants for $7.4 million. By doing so, this will definitely strengthen the company’s foundation even more. Thanks to OSI’s good client relations and technological advancements, this food provider will only continue to get bigger and better in the years to come.
