OSI Industries had its beginnings in 1909 when Otto Kolkovsky and his two children, boys, immigrated from the European Continent. Otto was happy to be in America and soon moved to a small suburb in Chicago called Deer Park. Otto found many opportunities as a butcher and soon he his two sons opened a meatpacking company. Otto & Sons became famous in Chicago and grew nationally over the years. Mid-century when Ray Kroc, the McDonalds franchise was launching his company all over America, and abroad he chose Otto & Sons as his meatpacker and distributor. Now, after 65 years of innovative leadership with McDonalds and over 100 in the meatpacking industry OSI Industries is entering a new era with his recently being chosen as the co-producer of the Impossible Burger by Impossible Foods.

Impossible Foods opened its offices in 2011 at their headquarters in Redwood where they had one goal to accomplish. They wanted to make a healthy option for the beef burger, which had all the characteristics of beef but was plant-based. After five years of research and development, Impossible Foods launched its Impossible Burger. The debut of the impossible Burger took place in downtown New York in the presence of many food critics and luxury plant-based food purveyors at David Chang’s restaurant Momofuku Nishi. After the debit of the Impossible Burger, many orders were received at Impossible Foods headquarters. Unable to keep up with the mass of rules that had accumulated by mid-2019 Impossible Foods signed a co-production agreement with OSI Industries.
Future of Impossible Foods
Impossible Foods has plans to extend its reach into other plant-based foods and has already produced a plant-based sausage which is currently being used in selected Little Ceasar restaurants. OSI will continue to so-produce the Impossible Burger as well as distribute thru its locations in 17 countries as well as 65 international locations.
