OSI Group McDonalds Allows Business Insider Inside
About six years ago, OSI Group McDonalds reputation took a bone-crushing blow after David Whipple “proved” that McDonald’s used preservatives in their best beef patties. Though both companies claim that no preservatives are added to any of the food, Whipple’s pictures have everybody up in a roar. According to Whipple, whose evidence only seems to be photos, he purchased a McDonald’s burger in 1999, and 14 years later, in 2013, when he pulled the burger out, it looked almost the same. He and his supporters accuse OSI Group McDonalds of lying over the last twenty or so years.
Though everyone seems to be dog-piling on McDonald’s and OSI Group, some experts have offered some reasonable defenses. Keith Warriner, a food science program director at the University of Guelph, says that rot has nothing to do with preservatives most of the time. Whether food rots or spoils depends on how the food is stored. As everyone knows, the public doesn’t care about scientific evidence once it’s made up its mind. So, to combat the nasty rumors about their food products, OSI Group McDonalds opened the doors to Business Insider and gave them a tour of OSI’s Gunzburg, Germany facility.
The Gunzburg facility is the largest OSI factory in Europe, sizing in at about the same size as a soccer field. In that huge building, OSI produces five million beef products every day, of which 90 percent belongs to one of McDonald product lines. At the beginning of the tour, Business Insider’s people were asked to put on protective clothing. The interviewer, who needed to take notes, was given a clipboard and metal pen, as all beef goes through a metal detector near the end of the process. That way, should the pen be lost, it would be picked up by the metal detector. Business Insider’s people also noted the thick aroma of beef smell that looms throughout the entire facility. Once inside the building, there’s no doubt that they’re working with meat.

OSI Group Spreads Across the World
In the beginning, every company starts out as a small store in a small community. Rarely does a new business start out big and end big. OSI Group is no different from any other worldwide conglomerate. When OSI was first founded, it was a tiny meat market in the cozy community of Oak Park, Illinois in Chicago. Founded by Otto Kolschowsky, a German immigrant, in 1909, OSI was never predicted to become a global juggernaut. Mr. Kolschowsky opened his business as a way to fit into the community. As he settled in and started a family, more locals took notice of his quality meats.
Before long, his operations had to be moved to a larger facility in Maywood, a more spacious community on the other side of town. Once resettled, he continued growing his business reputation and winning over more corporate clients in the region. In 1928, nearly 20 years later, his sons, now older enough to work, joined the family business, and Otto rebranded the store – Otto and Sons. As World Wars came and went, Otto & Sons thrived in the Midwest, quickly becoming one of the top food suppliers of high-quality meats in the region. When their father retired, the brothers continued his legacy while looking to make their mark on the industry.
In 1955, an enthusiastic entrepreneur approached the brothers about supplying his chain of restaurants. While opening a restaurant chain doesn’t sound outrageous today, back then, supplying any one client with that much product was unheard of in the food industry. Despite the risk, the brothers went into business with Ray Kroc, and the first McDonald’s opened in Des Plaines, Illinois later that year. In the early days, McDonald’s had over 100 suppliers, but that number quickly dropped, as many suppliers couldn’t keep up with demand. As Otto & Sons and McDonald’s succeeded together, OSI Group was born. Today, OSI Group has facilities all over the world and is a major player in the value added food supplying business.

Think about the last time you ate. Did you think about how the food got to your plate? Did you examine the process of growing food, transporting food, getting food into grocery stores and ultimately how the food eventually ended up on your plate? Did you consider all of the different people and companies that had to be involved to create the food you ate? Food does not seem that deep. But OSI Industries understands the food production industry completely. OSI Industries brings in billions of dollars annually. The mega food production operates on multiple continents. More than twenty thousand people call the company their employee.
The magnitude and influence of this company has on the very food we eat is major. They play a major role in how food gets to your plate. From being apart of the process to creating food concepts to growing food to raising food to the logistics of food to outing food on the shelves of supermarkets to putting foods into restaurants, this company completely understands the process of getting food to the customer. It has not always been this way for the company. Before they were OSI Industries they were a humble meat market located in Chicago, Illinois. The meat market was began by a man that had immigrated to the United States. The meat market was a family business.
The founder’s sons was able to take the meat market to being a regional supplier for many different clients. Over the decades, the company began to expand. Eventually, during the 1980’s and 1990’s the company began to make a presence overseas. Today, the company operates as one of the largest food production companies. OSI Industries was able to change the food production industry because they stayed true to their passion, morals and standard of doing great business with their clients and serving quality food. Changing an entire industry is hard to do. It is rare. It can only be done by companies that have the better good of others on their mind. OSI Industries still has so much to offer to the food industry.
The rise of the internet across the globe has shed light on various hot button issues, one, in particular, is in the manner that our food, in this instance, Mcdonald’s hamburgers are produced. Today’s consumer is concerned about how many food additives or amount of sugar is added to their food. McDonald’s knows a thing or two about producing food; in fact, data says that Mcdonald’s sells over 75 burgers every second of every day! Therefore, it is no surprise why Mcdonald’s would be one of the first company’s to be looked at. There’s a famous experiment made by David Whipple where he purchased a Mcdonald’s burger in 1993 and left it in his kitchen cupboard for almost two decades. After he took it out it seemed that nothing had really changed, no mold or visible discoloration was seen.
However, a scientist was quick to point out that much like we need water, food, and oxygen to grow, so does bacteria although the public might beg to differ on this explanation. Recently, One business insider decided that he needed to see the production of McDonald’s food for himself. Therefore, he went to Günzburg, Germany, where OSI Group Mcdonalds was the exact location to see the process in action. OSI Group McDonalds or OSI Group as it was first called is the American company that first produced food for the Mcdonalds company when they first began.
Although the factory isn’t owned by Mcdonald’s, Eunice Koekkoek, a McDonald’s representative stated that over 90% of its food is produced at the OSI Group Mcdonalds factory. The first thing one notices is the strict guidelines that OSI Group Mcdonalds takes to keep the factory clean from any form of virus. Sick employees need a doctor’s note to begin working again, and since there are no preservatives in the hamburger meat, everything is checked and doubled checked daily. Although meat at every part of the world may have a different taste due to cultural preferences, the fact is that Mcdonald’s meat is and remains original.

Getting Into The Auto Industry
It was right after Louis Chenevert earned his degree in production management that he was hired on to General Motors in Quebec. Guy Hachey was very proud to have hired him.

Hachey was already a year-and-some ahead of Chenevert. He says every time he would get promoted, he would promote Chenevert. Hachey says Chenevert is most likely the best executive he has ever had.
