There are factors that can affect how a company runs but since global companies are said to be local in nature, a list of consideration to fit the consumers taste must be included. Such inhibiting factors include government regulations, talent pool, and other cultural nuances that heavily downgrade company performance. However, several companies are strong enough to withstand such effects and register a positive approach to its consumer’s satisfaction. A good example of such a company is OSI Group.
OSI Group is a global leader in the supply of protein foods such as beef and sausage. Head quartered in Aurora, the company specializes in the supply of pizzas and sandwiches to leading food companies and retailers. The company is operational in more than 50 facilities in 17 countries and is currently working on expanding its borders in China. Its presence in China has been recognized for the past 20 years and operates eight factories with two new facilities underway. OSI’s China operations serve clients such as Starbucks, Yum, and Papa John’s. David McDonald, OSI Group president mentioned China as their greatest focus and the group’s major consumer.
McDonald graduated with bachelor of science from Lowa State University with a specialty in Animal Science. Advantaged to his 30 years experience in the industry, his academic performances were the deciding factor in his appointment as the chairman of the North American Meat Institute. Under his management, OSI Company broke ground on a beef processing facility in Poland. The new facility was aimed at replacing an existing operation and to boost the company by thirty percent.
Over the past years OSI have experienced a tremendous growth where by the company acquired more than 30 facilities, ventured in more than fifteen countries, and recently acquired a new food processing company. The new food processing company with the brand name Baho food was a game changer in OSI Group since it enabled the company to broaden its services and the variety of food offered. Additionally, McDonald expressed his views terming the approach as a positive move that complemented the group’s current strength and broadened its capabilities.
