OSI Group Continues to Dominate the Meat Processing Market
OSI Group is a firm that was established by Otto Kolschowsky in 1909. It began as a butcher shop and was known as Otto & Sons, USA. The company has since grown to sixty-five different locations across the globe. The growth of the company began in 1955 when the company was selected as the first supplier of hamburger to McDonalds.
