Recently, David McDonald, the president of OSI Group spoke about the vision and future aspirations of the company. He stated that when he joined the company about 30 years ago, he saw the incredible aspiration for growth it had back then and the same remains vibrant up to now. OSI Group aims at becoming the premier international food provider to top branded companies.
From the past, OSI Group has grown through a number of formal partnerships. The group has developed a culture of making the most suitable management decisions, which were made with the customers in mind in all the product categories or regions it operates in. This has seen the OSI Group become a comfortable and logical buyer of most of the partners that have since exited. The group enjoys the benefits of being global and of scale, which has allowed it to have a global network especially in worldwide sourcing and what David knows.
