From its establishment in 1909, OSI has been leading in Theo world of food processing in meat products. It has been expanding gradually from a family meat market to a wholesale meat store to Otto and Sons in 1928, and finally the OSI industries in 1975. During its growth, it has tapped the international market by expansions and acquisitions of other meat processing industries. In the mid 20th century, it’s expansions were centered in Chicago and nearby areas where it built plants and absorbed other businesses. Here is a simple illustration of the growth and expansion of OSI Industries in that era.
In 1990, OSI Food Solutions collaborated with General millers and Alaska milk corporations for the GenOSI processing company.
In ’95, the industry ventured into the Indian market and established Vista Processed foods. In 1996, Moy Park was acquired by OSI which was later sold to Marfrig twelve years later.
Here are more recent expansions of OSI food solutions under the leadership of Sheldon Lavin.

OSI Industries acquired Baho to expand its market and reach in the Netherlands. Baho is said to maintain its structural organization model while OSI food solutions executives work with them for success and growth.
The European acquisition, Flagship Europe. In 2016, The food solutions aimed to increase its production to reach and service the European market. This ambitions led to the European flagship acquisitions, which later called creative foods Europe. Previously, the UK food plant had acquired Calder foods to expand its own market.
Tyson Food acquisition. This Chicago food plant was acquired in 2017. OSI food solutions targeted it in particular for its large space; about 200000 square feet. This would be useful when increasing production for the rapidly growing demand in America.
