It’s become traditional for the British Safety Council to pick companies doing business in the UK who have implemented and adhere to the best practices in their industry, and in 2016 the winner of their Globe of Honour award was OSI Industries. The company is based in the US but they’ve built a strong presence in the UK and throughout Europe, and they’ve had some of the fewest mishaps in their meat processing plants of any company out there. They also make sure that their production and disposal has low environmental impact and is beneficial to the communities they serve.
OSI Industries is headquartered in a Chicago suburb not too far from where its original store was founded. It was Otto Kolschowsky, a German immigrant who started up a butcher shop that became a meat wholesale store and processing facility that his family ran, and so it got its name Otto & Sons. After Otto Kolschowsky had retired, his sons famously shook hands with McDonald’s Restaurants owner Ray Kroc and started off what would be a 60-year partnership that’s still going. Otto & Sons had also moved beyond Chicago and opened another meat plant in Iowa, but they eventually got word that McDonald’s was planning to open locations overseas and needed Otto & Sons to look in that direction as well. It was a financial advisor named Sheldon Lavin who helped procure the financing for an overseas expansion and then started running Otto & Sons entire financial department. Lavin took over as CEO and owner upon the retirement of the Kolschowsky sons and renamed the company OSI Industries.
The first overseas expansion started with an investment in Germany, and then other countries across Europe and Asia soon followed. By the 1990s, OSI Industries had opened a plant in China, and in just the last few years bought Baho Food in the Netherlands. OSI Group Buys Former Tyson Foods Plant in Chicago. With every acquisition OSI has made, all previous employees and managers have been offered to keep their jobs and even their brand name as a subsidiary, and OSI often gives them access to more financing and resources to meet customer demands. OSI Industries has also been involved in philanthropies under Lavin and President David McDonald’s directives including supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Inner City Foundation of Chicago. The company has also been listed as a top place to come work at in various employment review publications.OSI Food Solutions UK Awarded 2016 Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council.
