OSI Group is the leading producer of food products. The company is based in Aurora, Illinois. It is one of the longest-serving food companies in the world. It was first established as a butcher shop in 1909 by a German immigrant known as Otto Kolschowsky.
Otto was coming into the country to try and exploit the opportunities that were available at the time. He set up the butcher shop not knowing how well it would perform. He never expected the company would take the path of growth that it has taken in the past one century. Currently, it is one of the largest companies in the United States.
