Initially, OSI Group was an all meat processing company, and it supplied meat products to McDonalds, but this has changed over the years due to its growth.
OSI Group McDonalds was formed in 1995 when the first chain of McDonalds was opened. Roy Kroc was the one that opened the franchise, and he had a verbal agreement with OSI to supply him with meat products. Roy Kroc was not the owner of McDonalds, but he finally decided to purchase the restaurant and became its CEO. Once he did this, he made the business relationship between OSI and McDonalds official. OSI Group McDonalds was now the main supplier of meat products to McDonalds. At the time, technology was not advanced and therefore getting the meat products to all the new chains of McDonalds that were being opened around was a bit tasking. OSI Group had to ensure that the food products reached the destinations while they were fresh. They were able to incorporate flash freezing which ensured these products stayed fresh at all times.
