The foodservice industry may seem like the average everyday industry, but this notion can’t be any farther from the truth. This exclusive field of work is very diverse, is very dynamic and is very demanding. There are literally thousands of food products on the market and many of those products are completely different from the next. On top of that, the ingredients in these products can be unique. The shipping process of food products is a full-time business of its on, but what about the sectors of business such as development, processing and management? Everything has to be in place, and everything has to be prepared per instructions. This is where OSI Group stands out amongst the field, and it is rewriting history via its valiant logistical efforts.
Headquartered in the beautiful city of Aurora, Illinois, OSI Group has come a long way since its humbling birth. The company was basically a family-owned meat processor. Unlike other meat processors in the region, this company provided great customer service, and it produced great tasting beef. This great overall service was before and after the cryogenics-revolution. The founder of the company moved to America from Germany. Mr. Otto Kolschowki brought his old-world ways to the western hemisphere, and he surely made a name for himself. As time went on, this small business expanded into the wholesale food market. The company would also change locations many times during this era. As its reputation and resume soared, more and more prominent names jumped aboard for doing business. The names consist of Subway, KFC, Papa John’s Pizza, Starbucks, McDonald’s, Burger King and Yum. OSI’s Sheldon Lavin Receives Global Visionary Award
