Ingenuity, Passion & Dedication: OSI Food Solutions

Located in the city of Aurora, Illinois, is one of the most progressive-thinking companies in food services. This company just so happens to employ well-over 18,000 individuals, and its history dates back to the 1900s. OSI Food Solutions is the company in question, and this international food provider is revolutionizing the industry in more ways than one. Of course, it wouldn’t be a food provider if it didn’t actually offer any foods. OSI Food Solutions has copious options to choose from, including salisbury steak, chicken fried steak, pasta, pot roast, chili, cookies, marinades, Tofu, bacon bits, chicken nuggets, steak, hotdogs, poultry products, beans, salsa, flavored sausage, flatbread, fresh dough and many others.

It takes passion, dedication and perseverance to make it to the top of the throne. These three attributes are what this particular company specializes in on a daily basis. OSI has a total of 65 working factories and facilities. That’s right! These structures are some of the most technologically advanced facilities on earth, especially when it comes to this specific field of work. Having a make-it-happen mentality has also helped to fuel the fire even more. As the old saying goes, “you have to spend money to make money.” This statement is 100 percent accurate. OSI Food Solutions has certainly spent its fair share of capital over the years. By spending $7.4 million on a plant in Chicago, the company now has an additional 200,000 square-feet of space. OSI paid this amount two years ago, which was for one of Tyson Foods’ Chicago-based plants.

The same thing goes for its Spain location. The company needed to increase productions for processing chicken. OSI Food Solutions made the decision to bring in a high-capacity production line. Yes, this advanced equipment has certainly more than doubled the company’s productions, but it cost OSI more than $17 million.
