Some of the ways that David McDonald, and the OSI Group has been able to over come some of the hurdles that have been placed in front of the is by partnering. The OSI Group will sometimes partner with customers, and suppliers. Most of the time David McDonald, and the OSI Group will partner with a government agency. Although many times the government is not even sure what to do. The company chooses to believe that the government is trying to do the right thing in the best interest of the local people.
The company engages with the government to try, and improve some of their procedures. This takes time when including multiple agency. Everyone has different agendas, pressures, and problems they have to deal with. By being patient, and understanding the company can find the right solution for everyone. This helps to bring different organizations together to solve a common goal. This is made easy once it is established that everyone is trying to do the right thing in the best interest of the local people.
One of the great accomplishment that the company has had is becoming the global leading food processing center in China. They have become the leading supplier for popular brands like Burger King, and McDonald’s. When the Olympic Games were held in Beijing the company provided the food products. No complaints were made over the service that the company provided. This made McDonald’s very happy since they were the company serving the food products provided by OSI.
David McDonald believes that his company has a head start over other companies, because of their understanding of the Chinese people. Other companies that are looking to get into meat processing have to compete with the 20 years of experience that the company has gained in it’s time in China. The company is confident that they can stay ahead in the race to keep up with the needs of it’s customers on a local, and global scale.
Understanding the issues that the Chinese customer faces is what separates their company from others. Providing solutions for that customer is what gives them the advantage. OSI Group acquires Baho Food
