Why Working With OSI Is A Great Idea

As a restaurant owner of supermarket owner, you need to get high-quality and inexpensive food from somewhere. You’ve been burned by your past food providers more times than you can count and you’re getting sick of having to change. Thankfully, excellent companies like OSI are available to help you out of your food supply doldrums.

What Is The History Of OSI?

OSI differs from other large food providers because it has its roots in small-town and family-oriented businesses. Starting in 1909 in Chicago as a single family meat market, OSI has since expanded to provide food to companies and communities all around the world.

OSI Group acquired other companies and has grown significantly, bringing them into the fold to offer high-quality food at fair prices.

Another interesting facet about this company is that it remains privately held. This means it does not suffer from the whims of a large group of investors or a disinterested board of directors who only want to maximize their bottom line.

OSI is still family-owned and operated and believes that helping the little guy is just as crucial as boosting big business.

As a result, people who work with OSI are always surprised at just how friendly they are to those who work with them. Working with the same few people for years is a common occurrence with OSI, and you’re likely to be on a first-name basis with most of them.

This creates a “small-business” feel that is unique to OSI and which can’t be faked. They are the real deal and they appreciate their customers on a highly personal level.

The Commitment To Sustainability

OSI is also different from other food providers in that they focus heavily on sustainability. They know that there’s only so much room on the planet to grow food and that millions of people are starving every day.

As a result, they work hard to minimize their environmental impact and focus on sustainability in a way you don’t see in other companies

The benefits of this approach are multi-faceted. For example, it allows OSI to have a steady supply of food to provide you. As a result, you’ll rarely have to wait long for your order.

It also helps ensure that their supply is never lower than their demand, decreasing operating costs and passing on savings to both OSI and to you as a consumer.

Even better, OSI focuses on helping its suppliers (such as farmers and others) better understand sustainability and how to maximize their farming efficiency. The benefit translates to you by decreasing OSI operation costs, increasing their efficiency, creating high-quality food, and helping to save you money on investing in their operating costs. It’s a win-win for all sides!
