OSI Food Solutions actually started out as a tiny meat market in Oak Park, Illinois. The company has roots that goes back to Germany. Otto Kolschowki, the company’s founder, was one of thousands of German-immigrants that bombarded the shores of America at the start of the 20th century. At one point in time, Chicago’s population was 25 percent German. These hardworking people helped the US economy grow at an alarming rate. As time passed, Kolschowski would go the wholesale-food route and move the company to Maywood, Illinois. The name Otto & Sons perfectly identified the business as it was family-owned and operated. As the company kept on growing, its owners would change the name in 1975. Otto & Sons was now known as OSI Industries.
As of now, OSI Food Solutions has factories all across the United States in Utah, in California, in Wisconsin and in Iowa. In 2016, OSI Food Solutions strengthened its foundation by purchasing the Tyson Foods’ plant in Chicago for $7.4 million. This plant is also located near other OSI plants in the Chicagoland area. In the end, OSI Food Solutions will retain at least 250 of the previous positions.
