OSI Group Makes Headway In Australia

OSI Group International just announced its merger with Turi Food. The Australian division will now be known as Turosi Pty. Ltd. “We believe that shared ownership between companies with similar cultures will produce a world-class, dedicated team,” said Turi Foods Chairman Sam Cuteri. Based in Thomasville, Victoria, Turi Foods has outlets throughout the state. Turi foods is a longtime supplier of supermarkets, restaurants, chicken retailers, and butcher shops. They are also one of Australia’s largest poultry processors.Privately owned OSI International supplies food service markets, restaurants, and retailers throughout the Asia Pacific region.Both companies have built a strong reputation in their respective area.

OSI Group President David MacDonald says the merger has tremendous potential and more innovative ways to serve the public.OSI Group’s history can be traced back to 1909 when a German immigrant named Otto Kolschowsky opened a local meat market in a Chicago suburb. Chicago was a thriving city center and provided great opportunities for immigrants to gain a footing.The meat market continued to thrive through WWI, and by 1928, it was re-branded Otto & Sons.For many more decades, the meat market saw success. But a fateful meeting between a Otto & Sons and a little-known restaurateur named Ray Krok proved to be the biggest development in the company’s history.

Krok, who was in business with the McDonald brothers, opened the first McDonald’s Restaurant in 1955 Des Plaines, Illinois. He needed a supplier of fresh beef for his company. So with a handshake, Otto & Sons entered into an agreement that gave them the task of supplying McDonald’s Restaurants.Krok, a business genius in his own right, made McDonald’s into the blueprint of what fast-food restaurants should be. Needless-to-say, the company saw huge success.Otto & Son’s fortunes rose right along with McDonald’s. By the 1960s, the company was again re-branded. This time as OSI Group. They built a manufacturing plant to supply meats solely for McDonald’s Restaurants in the Midwest.Today, the OSI Group is worth an estimated $7.1 billion, according to Forbes Magazine.
