Food manufacturers with international operations have to keep a myriad of things in mind while catering to the palates of consumers and some of these considerations include government regulations, cultural limitations and finding talent in different geographical locations. One of the companies that have successfully managed to adhere to the various guidelines is the OSI Group, led by David McDonald.
As the president of the OSI Group, David Mc Donald has ensured that his firm is positioned very well in the international network and he has also improved the sustainability of his company in the global food sector. According to him, the international operations are scaled in size; however, the teams that are in place in various countries consist of local talent that understands the importance of cultural sensitivity. These dedicated teams help in improving efficacy while providing solutions on a local platform.
The OSI Group’s headquarters are in Illinois, yet this global Mughal in the food sector ensures to cater to the diversified needs of customers at all the locations. Right from protein-rich items like sausage links, beef patties until sandwiches and pizzas, this private corporation provides high-quality food products to 17 countries through their 50 manufacturing and distribution facilities.
David McDonald has been striving to expand the OSI Group’s presence in China even further, and although this company has been catering to the needs of the residents of this country for the last 20 years, David McDonald believes that there is more to be done. As of now, eight manufacturing centers of the OSI Group exist in China, and an additional two new factories will soon be set up to make this firm the largest meat producer in the country. As of September last year, this enterprise has also made headway with an improved plant located in Henan Province. Also, a joint venture with Zhoukou and DOYOO has been planned to ensure that OSI remains one of the largest vertically integrated meat production operations in China. Some of the brands that the OSI group is associated to within this country include McDonald’s, Papa John’s Burger King, Subway, and Starbucks.
David McDonald believes with conviction that China is and will remain to be the quickest growing consumer markets in the world mainly due to reasons such as the power of the population, especially since due to the increased purchasing power of people living in this nation. David McDonalds also stated that there are many clients in China who have seen significant growth in the last few years and the OSI Group aims to keep up with this clientele.
