According to the article on FOOD & DRINK Magazine, global companies are local; an organization that has branches in the U.S., China, and Europe can’t run a one-size-fits-all operation. The talent pool, cultural nuances, and government regulations could all influence how a company is being run. In the industry of food, that considerations list also includes the taste buds of consumers.
David McDonald, OSI Group president, said that they are positioned well in that they have a global network, precisely with people from their organization in plants or offices worldwide. They have a global operation, meaning that they have a scale in size, but they have teams of local management that are very understanding and very sensitive to the local tastes and cultures. It is the efficiency and power of global scale along with local solutions.
OSI Group is headquartered in Aurora, Illinois. It’s a world leader in supplying protein items that are value-added, like beef patties and sausage links. Also, OSI Group supplies items like pizza and sandwiches, to leading retail brands and foodservice. The privately held corporation is operating over 50 facilities in 17 nations, and it’s currently using its strategy of global-efficiency, local-solution in expanding its presence in China. The company has been operating in China for more than two decades, and as the economy of the country has grown, the presence of OSI Group has grown with it.
It’s operating eight factories plus with two new facilities in progress OSI is going to be the largest poultry producer in China. In 2012, OSI initiated a new venture on a mega-plant for more processing in Henan province. McDonald said that China was their focus for all the reasons they read about every day. It’s continuing to be world’ largest growing consumer market. Therefore, it has the population power, but that population is getting more affluent, as well.
