OSI Food Solutions: A Top 100 American Privately Owned Company

Food processing giant OSI Food Solutions takes it just over $6 billion each year. That puts it among the 60 largest privately owned American companies. That’s remarkable growth for a company that stated as a butcher shop and neighborhood meat market in Oak Park, Illinois. From that one meat market, Aurora, Illinois headquartered OSI Food Solutions has grown to have food processing facilities in West Chicago, Chicago and Geneva, Illinois, Riverside California, Oakland, Iowa, Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin and West Jordan, Utah in the United States and over 60 other facilities in 16 other countries.

Although OSI Food Solutions has enjoyed such spectacular growth, the company has also continued to pay close attention to environmental management, food quality and worker safety. That has resulted in them winning dozens of awards. The company has won the Globe of Honor three times. That award is given by the British Safety Council for excellence in environmental management. The company has also done a remarkable job working with governmental agencies all over the world to ensure they meet and exceed local food production requirements and laws. OSI Food Solutions also focuses on satisfying the food preferences of their customers from a diverse range of cultures.

The OSI Group has developed a huge customer base in Asia. The company has built facilities in India, Japan and the Philippines. They’ve also made a major push in China. OSI Food Solutions has been providing foods for the Chinese market for over 20 years. They have built 10 facilities for processing poultry there and provide a wide range of international fast food chains with outlets in China with a vast array of food products for their enterprises. No company in China processes more poultry products than OSI Food Solutions.

In addition to producing products for its retail customers, OSI Food Solutions also produces private label brand foods for other companies. They co-packs several major brand name items designed to meet the needs of a number of food service companies. Some of the diverse range of products offered by OSI Food Solutions include not only meat products but a wide range of nutritious, tasty, vegetable and dough products as well. The company also provides a wide array of products for customers in Europe through their purchase of Baho Foods and Flagship Europe. OSI Food Solution’s success has resulted in company CEO Sheldon Lavin being given the 2016 Global Visionary award.
