OSI Group has become the world’s largest group that deals with many value added foods such as pork, fish, poultry, bacon,etc. It’s also been a supplier for McDonalds for over half century now. The partnership between both of the companies has helped them expand their establishments around the world and turned themselves into billion dollar businesses. What makes their beef and poultry be in such high demand is the fact that they have been able to be preserved using the right freezing and heating techniques, along with the fact that the meat does not contain any artificial preservatives.
Impossible Foods and OSI group announced in 2019 that the two companies will collaborate in pursuit of saving meat, along with creating an alternate plant-based product for consumers to enjoy the nutritional meat benefits. The main motive that the two companies have is to start creating Impossible Burger. Several companies and food chains have interest and noticed the new food product. Thousands of fast-food chains and restaurants such as CheeseCake Factory, White Castle, and Burger King have decided to begin presenting impossible burgers on their menus.
The main and major customer of OSI Group, McDonalds, has decided to wait it out and see how the consumers react to this new product and how far the bigger fast-food chains can take it. As of right now, McDonalds isn’t ready to risk its top quality food and this could help them get a head-start on launching their own product, after examining the consumer’s responses. OSI Group was actually opened in Chicago by a family who had just moved to the USA from Germany. Sheldon Lavin has been the Chairman and CEO of the company for over thirty years and helped lead the way for the company’s acquisitions in China and Europe. They are still privately owned and have many facilities in around 17 different countries. Click here.
