It was founded in 1909 and up for much of its life up through the 1970s it was known as Otto & Sons.

At OSI Industries they excel at offering customized solutions to their customers. Different restaurants have different needs which OSI Industries needs to adapt to in order to provide what their clients need. They supply food used by many fast food chains such as McDonald’s, KFC, Subway, Starbucks, and more. They also create private label brand foods which many grocery stores sell as their own brands of processed food in their freezer sections.

This company can supply a wide variety of food, much of it protein-based. This includes beef patties, hot dogs, bacon, poultry, fish, and pork. They also supply other foods like vegetables, fruits, dough products, dressings, marinades, and more. This food is processed in more than 65 food production facilities worldwide. In America, OSI Industries has facilities in five states; California, Utah, Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

Over the years OSI Industries has garnered many awards due to the care it takes with health and safety risks as well as how they manage environmental impact. In China, for example, they were given the Good Chicken Production Award in 2017. This award is given to those companies that exhibit high standards in how they process poultry. Another requirement of this award is that they are doing their part to provide enrichment to the chickens they use, such as working towards making sure they have access to natural light.

An environmental award OSI Industries received in the UK in 2016 was the Globe of Honour. To receive this honor they had to display excellent environmental stewardship in all parts of the company, from the processing facility to its boardroom in Aurora, Illinois.
