Operating a global company is not easy. Many government regulations, different cultures, and many other factors challenge global companies. However, OSI Group has stood out, and it continues to grow and develop internationally. OSI Group is based in Aurora, Illinois and it specializes in a supply of value-added food products like sausages, beef patties, hot dogs, sandwiches, bacon, and vegetable products. The company provides services to retail and food service industries in many countries in the world.
With David McDonald; the president and the help of Sheldon Lavin; the CEO of OSI Group, significant growth and development has been seen over the years. The company aims at providing service to their client diligently and more efficiently. Developing products that are preferred by different food companies is their primary reason for success. For more success, the Subsidiary businesses and plants are managed by people who understand the local market and knows their client’s tastes and preference.
The company growth is unstoppable. The company partners with customers in developing products that sell fast and have high demand. OSI Group has established its base properly, and it has now focused on penetrating more and more countries. Acquiring Flagship Europe, in Germany was a great move, and this broadened their operation and presence in Germany. Flagship Europe involved in the production of pies, frozen poultry and condiments and this enabled OSI Group to provide a wider range of food and get more clients.
On top of that, OSI Group acquired Baho food; a Dutch manufacturer of deli meat, snacks and convenience foods. This firm had manufacturing plants in Netherlands and Germany. Baho Food supplied products to retail and wholesale food service shops in over 18 nations. With OSI Group acquiring Baho Food, their presence in Europe is broadened, and this enhances their international growth and expansion.
Also, OSI Group bought Hynek Schlachthof GmbH which was a German meat company that deals with slaughterhouses. This company is located near cattle ranches hence very convenient for beef production. This was a great move as now the company can produce more beef and supply it to their clients in Germany and other parts of the world.
OSI Group does not stop there in international expansion. They have moved to Philippine, and in a joint venture with GenOSI, they have opened a processing plant in May 2017 that supplies fish, beef, and chicken to many foodservice companies. David McDonald and Lavin are very confident about OSI Group international expansion, and they won’t stop working hard to ensure the company provides their products to more countries.
