OSI Industries: Meeting the Global Demand for Meat and Deli Products

The OSI Group (also known as OSI Industries or simply OSI), one of the world largest multinational food providers, is a unique food industry leader that employs the best business practices to ensure safe and reliable food production and promote environmental responsibility.

Starting in 1909 as a small butcher shop founded by German immigrants in Chicago, Illinois, OSI has grown into a major corporation. Operating in 17 countries, the global company has a workforce of 20,000-plus employees. And, it owns and runs approximately 65 facilities around the globe.

OSI specializes in meat processing and is the premier food supplier of meat and deli products from which many of the world’s largest food service companies like Yum! Brands and McDonald’s purchase its high quality meats and other food products. And, OSI provides McDonald’s with the best-in-class beef patties used for the hamburger brand’s product line, including the Big Mac.

Each day, the major food supplier processes products like beef, pork, poultry, and vegetables at each of its facilities. Its products are always fresh and are professionally processed and shipped frozen to its major global customers.

Adhering to traditions that are over 100 years old, the privately owned entity is led by Sheldon Lavin — the chairman and chief executive office. And, David McDonald serves as President. Because both men can see how demanding OSI’s meat and deli products are to many foodservice and retail food brands, Lavin and McDonald know the company’s success can be empowering to its employees.

OSI’s workforce comprises of industrious employees whose dedication and hard work ethics ensure the delivery of high-quality food like bacon, fish, hot dogs, meat patties, poultry and other products.

Headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, OSI Industries strives to exemplify the proven and tested standard against which all other food suppliers in the global food processing industry are compared.
