Ingenuity & Excellence in Custom Foods: OSI Group

Since the early 1900s, there has been one company in the foodservice industry that has lived-up to its own hype. This company started from humble beginnings, but as of today, it has grown into an enterprise. OSI Group just so happens to be that company, and it has revolutionized this industry in more ways than one. Some of the biggest names in food service history has worked exclusively with this company. The names included are KFC, Papa Johns Pizza, Pizza Hut, Yum, Burger King and Starbucks. McDonald’s was one of its very first major clients as it produced some of the freshest beef products for this amazing hamburger-chain giant. This relationship has survived cryogenics, which is the storing of meats through liquid-nitrogen freezing. As of today, OSI Group remains as one of four meat suppliers to McDonald’s.

In 2016, OSI Group expanded its empire even further by acquiring Flagship Europe. Flagship Europe is one of the largest suppliers of frozen poultry in the U.K. “Thanks to this acquisition, the company will strengthen its position in the foreign market,” said Chief Executive Russell Maddock. Flagship Europe also produces a wide variety of sauces, marinades, dips, sandwich fillings and mayonnaise. The future of OSI Group is growing stronger and stronger by the day. President Sheldon Lavin has done a phenomenal job of running this company at full-throttle. The great leadership from Lavin has certainly paid-off in huge dividends.

OSI Group has the capability to produce various food items such as cooked sausage links, pot roast, soups, chili, beans, panini, chicken fried steak, bacon bits, meatloaf, meatballs, Tofu, hotdogs, beef patties, cookies, cucumbers, onions, fritters, pepperoni, salsa, pulled pork, frozen entrees, lettuce and desserts. The options are nearly endless. All in all, this fabulous food provider is leading by example, and it’s setting new trends in the food service industry.
