Since being founded as a family meat market in 1909 by a German immigrant, OSI Group, LLC has become one of the leading processed food providers in the world. One of the bigger events in the history of the company occurred in 1955 when it developed a partnership with the then newly opened fast food franchise McDonald’s as one of their beef suppliers. This partnership and OSI Group’s food consistent quality led to it being named in the late 60’s as one of only four suppliers of fresh beef for McDonald’s across the nation. Nowadays, OSI Group supplies processed food to restaurants around the world as well as private label brands.
OSI Group has food processing plants across the United States. Some of the locations are in Illinois, California, Wisconsin, and Utah among others. Each location needs many employees such as Shipping & Receiving Supervisors, Environment Compliance Specialists, Plant Human Resources Managers, and Corporate Culinary Kitchen Helpers among many other positions. These positions are posted on job websites such as monster.com. OSI Group also hires to fill corporate positions at its headquarters in Aurora, Illinois.
Beyond the United States, OSI Group also has offices and facilities in Asia and Europe. In particular, OSI Group has been recently expanding at a great pace in Europe, having bought other food processing companies in the region including Baho Food in the Netherlands and Flagship Europe in the United Kingdom. OSI Group continues to be a privately held company and is managed by its Chairman and CEO Sheldon Lavin.
