More about OSI Industries
OSI has grown from a little-known Chicago butchery, operated by a German immigrant, to become one of the dominant players in the food industry. Giving is one of the core values that OSI takes to heart. For that reason, the company is involved in various noble charities including the Northern Illinois Food Bank which is part of the Feeding America initiative. The founding father of the company was called Otto Kolschowsky who passed down the food company to his two sons, Arthur and Harry.
