We all go to the food stores or supermarkets to buy some foodstuff. However, there is probably one thing that has never crossed our mind. Have you ever asked yourselves where the food we consume comes from? Probably not. The same case applies when we go to the restaurants we do not ask where the restaurants get the food they prepare for us.
What you may be surprised to know is that this is one of the largest businesses in the world. Everyone in the world needs food on a daily basis. It is a basic need that must be fulfilled. Many companies are in this business, but our concern is one business called OSI Group. This is the largest private food manufacturing company. It has roots not only in the United States but other parts of the world. As of today, OSI Group is a multi-billion company.
OSI Group is one of the oldest in the country. What many may not even be aware of is that they have consumed a product that has been manufactured by this company. The company was started in the early 1900s by an investor known as Otto. Back then, it was a small meat shop. It gained a name in the 1950’s when it won a tender to supply hamburger to McDonald’s. OSI Group is based in Aurora, Illinois. However, this is not the only region it serves. OSI has a presence in the whole world. It is offering people food plus job opportunities. OSI normally deals with meat products. The food is sold directly to large food chains although they do pack some product which they sell through the retail shops.
