In May of 2018, the, Illinois-based meat processing giant, OSI Group subsidiary, OSI International Food Groups, (Australia) instituted a merger with Turi Food Groups, a sizable Victoria-based chicken processing company, for the mutual benefit of both meat-related industries. The companies already share a similar mission and world-view. OSI International Food Groups has the instilled benefit of a family-based culture it derived through its parent company, OSI Group, a benefit it shares with Turi Food Groups. Besides their resemblance culture-wise, the two entities are renowned, highly reputable, long-time providers of superior protein content, with operations that distribute edibles to retail venues, such as quick-service restaurants, convenience stores and other food market operations.
Currently, OSI International Food Groups’ outreach extends further than that of Turi Food Groups, as it includes many Asian-Pacific outlets. With the combined muscle of the newly formed merger, however, the alliance of the two companies, henceforth to be known as Turosi Pty Ltd., will have a broader International scope and an enhanced ability to offer a wider array of quality foodstuffs and services to its clients. Sam Cuturi, the chairman of Turi Foods, expressed his excitement over the highly compatible company pairing, noting the already existing similarity in culture and a belief that “shared ownership will enable the organization… to build a world-class food solutions group.”
David G. McDonald, President and COO of OSI Group LLC, the parent company of OSI International Foods (Australia,) concurred with Cuturi, expressing his belief that “OSI Group and Turi (Foods) have built a strong reputation with the customers each company serves.” Empowered by Turi Food Groups, Leading Australian business adviser, Grant Thornton, was strategically available to oversee every stage of the successful link-up with the OSI Group subsidiary, OSI International Food Groups (Australia.) Even with their joint auspices combined the two operations will continue to hold the individual reins of their current facilities. Various processing plants and farming operations throughout the Victoria region will continue to hold their present strategic courses.
