Otto Kolschowsky founded the company in 1909 under the name Otto and sons. McDonald entered into a business agreement when Kolschowsky sons, Arthur and Harry got into a handshake agreement with Ray Kroc. The deal was to allow the Kolschowsky brothers to supply fresh-grounded beef to the OSI Group McDonalds.
Over the years, various factors have contributed to the growth of OSI Group McDonalds success. In the 60s, a breakthrough in technology helped the OSI and other food suppliers expand their operations. Technology helped the suppliers to transport their products over a long distance by using liquid nitrogen to free the products. This helped the McDonald Corporation to open new restaurants in different countries away from the production facilities. They no longer had to fear to get spoiled products due to the long distances between the production facilities and their restaurants.
