The global companies are usually local. It is not possible for a company to run a one-size-fits-all operation when it has its branches in Europe, USA and China. There are a lot of considerations to put in place like; the regulations of the government, the talent pool, and the cultural beliefs. All these factors tend to affect how the business can be run. David McDonald, the president of OSI Group, says that the company has managed to position itself well. They now have a global network with people from the organization having offices in the branches all over the world. They have a global operation that makes them have a scale in size. In addition to this, they have local management teams that help them understand the local tastes and cultures.
OSI Group has been operating in China for more than 20 years. The presence of the company has grown with the growth of the economy of China. In September of 2013, OSI was able to open a beef-processing facility in Poland. This facility replaced an existing operation and was expected to bolster the staff of the company by 30%.
OSI Group, Aurora III., was able to acquire a controlling stake in Baho Food. Baho Food is a private Dutch firm that manufactures meat products and other food items for the retail and foodservice industries. The company operates in both Netherlands and Germany. David McDonald claims that the addition of Baho Food to their business in Europe has enabled them to increase their presence in Europe. The products and brand that Baho Food has complemented the strength of processing that OSI has. The managing director of Baho Food, John Balvers will remain with the company together with his managing team. Balvers said that he was excited to be part of the larger OSI Group as they have an outstanding relationship with their suppliers and customers.
In 2016 there was a report that was released by OSI on the global sustainability. The report showed the progress that the company was able to make based on environment and supply chain in the 2016/2017 year. The goals that the company had by the year 2020 were also outlined in that report. There were no complaints, about the report, that the firm was able to receive.
