OSI Industries began as a meat market in the early 1900’s. A German immigrant named Otto Kolshowsky founded the company. He called his new organization Otto and Sons and ran it with his family. Otto and Sons became a trusted meat supplier to every food industry business within the Chicago Illinois region. Eventually Otto Kolshowsky’s sons took over the business. In the 1950’s Otto and Sons developed a working relationship with Ray Kroc. This move sprang them into the fast food industry. They began coming up with innovations that would set them apart from other meat suppliers. The meat patty cutting machine catered to hamburger restaurants. Cryogenic freezing chambers allowed Otto and Sons to store large amounts of inventory so that they would be able to provide product to all types of food businesses.
Otto and Sons became known as OSI Industries and continued to spread its influence throughout the meat manufacturing industry. The company has seven plants around the United States and overseas. It supplies several different products including hamburger beef, hot dogs and bacon.
