When opportunity and right timing present themselves, exploiting them to full potential requires a special kind of talent. The sons of Otto the butcher did what most young men with inheritance wouldn’t do. They grew the small business entrusted into their care by their father tenfold placing it on the world map. Today, that small struggling but dreaming business is OSI Group, and meat products continue to be their stronghold.
Feeding the hungry and the environment
Sustainability is a vocabulary that fails to exist in most companies. OSI Group realized long ago that the situation comes before the meat and not vice versa. OSI knows it has a future to protect and what better way to do it than through protecting the environment that will feed its future. The company is dedicated to sustainable food production and reducing the environmental footprint, something that other companies would love considering as another person’s job. OSI cleans up after themselves, and for this reason, they raise the bar for other companies to emulate. Their technology is top notch and environmentally friendly, and so is their product in the quest to save the planet.
