How OSI Group Became A Global Player In The Food Processing Industry
Growth is arguably one of the many hallmarks of any healthy business. It must be said that growth can certainly present its own share of unique challenges for any business especially for business that is new to the industry that it is working in. There can be times when consumers’ demands can exceed the capabilities of what a business is currently able to deliver to its customers. Due to exponential and unexpected growth some businesses might find that they simply do not have the capacity to fulfill the number of shipments that they have received in a timely manner because they do not have enough products available or that they do not have enough staff members on their team to help them meet both customers’ demands and expectations of quality service. This can at times lead to customers being possibly being disappointed. But that said for all the challenges that growth can present to a business they are positive challenges to have. Challenges that are related to growth require a company to hire more professionals with new skill sets that will enable to company to take advantage of more business opportunities. Growth can also present the opportunity for a company to expand into markets and areas of expertise that it did not previously envision engaging in.
One company that knows what it is like experience growth is a company that is known as OSI Group. The OSI Group is an international food processing corporation that is based in the Mid-western United States. The OSI Group got its start by becoming one of the meat suppliers for the global restaurant company McDonald’s. The OSI Group would go on to expand its scope beyond supplying hamburger meat to one restaurant chain and go on to supply other kinds of meat products such as chicken, pork products of various kinds, sausages, sandwiches and frozen meals to restaurants and food service companies around the world.
While OSI Group once focused its business on meeting the demands of restaurants in a regional market in the United States it has long since expanded its purview to include supplying products to a wide variety of international markets. The company has done business with companies in East Asia and Europe. Recently OSI Group expanded its business interests in Europe by acquiring a company that was known as Flagship Europe. OSI Group’s decision to acquire the company Flagship Europe has enabled it to enhance its offering in the European marketplace.
