OSI Group is a name that few have heard of. The reason for that is due to the fact that the company operates through a variety of sub-companies that it has purchased over the years. However, few know that OSI Group is the largest provider of the highest of quality meats, including chicken, sausage, bacon and hamburgers. OSI Group has been named one of the top one hundred food companies in the world. In fact, it leads the world in the production and distribution of high-quality, value food, with a special focus on meat.
OSI Group has more than sixty facilities throughout the world. These facilities are located in more than a dozen countries. The company is known for a great focus on ensuring its employees are fully satisfied with their jobs. In a time when many companies are being questioned about working environments, OSI Group has always remained not only above board, but has provided stellar conditions for its employees.
The company recently made a huge announcement. The OSI Group officially purchased the Tyson Foods plan in the South Side of Chicago. The facility is two hundred thousand square feet and employs several thousand people. Last year Tyson Foods announced that it would be closing its Chicago production space. The closing would have meant the loss of over four hundred jobs. Thanks to the purchase by OSI Group, most of those jobs have been saved. The employees have been offered jobs with OSI Group. The purchase of Tyson Food Group showcases OSI Group’s commitment to expansion of its role as the leader in high-quality food manufacturing, production and distribution. Did you know that one out of every five pieces of meat consumed in the United States is a product of Tyson Foods? I did not know that fact and I believe it is a testament to how large Tyson Foods is. In a recent announcement, OSI Group said how excited they were to expand the company’s North American footprint by securing a facility in Chicago. The company statement also mentioned how focused OSI Group is on expansion and how this acquisition was a sign of how well that expansion is progressing.
There is more big news that recently came from the OSI Group. The company also just recently bought a major stake in the Baho Food Company, based in the Netherland. The company also provides meat to countries all across Europe.
