How OSI Group Became One Of The World’s Top Food Companies

It is quite a miracle that you can go to your supermarket and get just about any type of fresh food you want. From ground beef to vegetables, fish, fruit, rice, pasta and more, any food you desire is at your fingertips at a low price. And one of the companies responsible for bringing you this food has been at it for over 100 years. That company, OSI Group, has become the worldwide leader when it comes to food production and distribution.

So who exactly is the OSI Group? The company was founded way back in 1909 by German immigrant Otto Kolschowsky. This young entrepreneur started out by opening a meat packing and delivery business. Soon, the company would grow and rename itself Otto & Sons in 1928. In two decades, the company had become one of the top food distributors in the midwestern United States.

Otto & Sons would soon find their fortune a couple of decades later when they met a businessman known as Ray Kroc. This business relationship led Otto & Sons to become the lead food distributor for the world’s largest fast-food chain – McDonald’s. Using a new technology known as Cryogenic food processing, the company was able to deliver millions of pounds of fresh meat patties to McDonald’s locations all over the country.

Since then, the company has changed its name to OSI Group and has rapidly expanded around the world. Included in the company’s expansion was the acquisition of a Tyson chicken food plant in Chicago as well as the acquisition of the Dutch convenient food maker Baho Food. In addition to the Tyson and Baho acquisitions, OSI Group has also added food supplier Flasghip Europe to their portfolio. Altogether, these acquisitions have allowed OSI Group to better serve their clients which include supermarket chains all around the world.

While many companies see their quality compromised with expansion, OSI Group has only gotten better. In fact, the company received the 2016 Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council. Additionally, OSI Group was recognized as one of America’s 100 food companies by trade magazine Food Processing.

From quality food manufacturing to efficient distribution, OSI Group has become the global leader in food processing and management. It’s no wonder why more and more supermarkets, restaurants and fast food chains have relied on OSI Group for quality food, efficient distribution, and competitive pricing.

Hippeas, a brainchild of Italian hardworking businessman Livio Bisterzo, was launched on June 13, 2016, in the main retail partners like Holland $ Barret, Amazon, Boots, and Starbucks. Hippeas chickpea snack is the first product to emerge from Green Park, a Los Angeles-based holding company founded in 2015 by Livio Bisterzo.

The personality of this global brand takes inspiration from the original hippie era but has been enhanced to meet the demands of today’s generation. Hippeas stands out on the shelf, online, and in consumer minds due to its virtual identity that is based on a bold yellow face with specially colored tongue for special flavors.

Four months after its launch, this brand has already secured shelf space at over 18,500 stores. Talks are underway with many the other main retailers and food-service providers in the U.S. and the UK for more space.

Bisterzo considers that given the alarming growth rate, the new brand could achieve wholesale revenues of $35 million by the end of 2018.

Hippeas is the new choice for individuals who demand tasty and attractive snacks manufactured with super ingredients. This product is low in calories, high in fiber, a source of protein, and gluten free. Hippeas is not corn-based, and so not associated with GMOs, which is a trigger subject for most young people.

The secret of the brand’s initial success, according to Bisterzo, is that the brand appeals to the natural and organic foods crowd. Consumers consider it to be friendly to their health and sustainable, but the unique packaging also makes a difference.
Hippeas has partnered with Farm Africa to bring hunger to an end and bring wealth to rural eastern Africa. The brand will donate a fraction of their sales to support chickpea farming in eastern Africa.
