OSI Group is an American privately owned holding company of meat processors that service the retail and food service industries with international headquarters in Aurora, Illinois.

OSI operates its U.S. plants under the name OSI Industries, LLC. The U.S. plants are located in Chicago, Geneva, Illinois, West Chicago, IL, Oakland, IA, West Jordan, UT, and Fort Atkinson, WI. The company produces many private label brand foods and co-packs major brand name items for its various Foodservice and Retail customers. OSI Group has more than 57 facilities in 17 countries around the world, located in North America, Western and Eastern Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region.[2]

Its products include meat patties, bacon, hot dogs, pizza, fish, poultry and vegetable products.

In 2011, Forbes listed it as America's 136th largest private company, based on annual revenues of $3 billion.[3] In 2013, it was #62 on the same Forbes list, at $5.9 billion.[1]

In July 2014, a factory of OSI Group in Shanghai, China was shut off by local government for selling out-of-date meat to international fastfood chains including McDonald's and KFC. A Shanghai television channel, which reported the original allegations, said that workers at the plant mixed expired meat with the fresh product and deliberately misled quality inspectors from McDonald's.[4]

OSI Group is also a meat supplier to other western fast food chains in China, such as Subway, Starbuck's, Papa John's, and Pizza Hut (July 2014).[5]
