OSI Group is a global franchise that deals with the manufacturing and processing of food products. OSI Group is an international brand because it sells quality food products that are carefully inspected and vetted before being put in the market. Some of the products that one can find from the OSI Group include sausages, meat patties, vegetables, and hot-dogs.
OSI Group does not only provide these food products to customers directly, but it also partners with other food franchises to deliver food products. McDonalds is an exceptional example of a food franchise that OSI Group works with. OSI delivers food products to McDonalds that they serve to the customers. This business relationship began in the late 90″s when the first McDonalds was opened by Roy Kroc. Roy Kroc had made an informal agreement with Arthur and Harry (sons of the founder of OSI) to bring him meat patties to the restaurant.
This was the genesis of the OSI Group McDonalds. Roy Kroc soon after became the CEO of McDonalds after buying it from its owners, and he made OSI Group McDonalds official. The relationship between OSI and McDonalds has significantly grown over the years with OSI having a storage facility and warehouse that produces products for McDonalds. The growth was however faced with some challenges along the way. When McDonalds started opening branches all over America, OSI found it more and more difficult trying to get to the branches in a timely manner. McDonalds main issue was maintaining consistency to their customers and OSI had to ensure this. Another challenge that OSI faced was ensuring the food did not go stale or go bad over the long distances.
With time, OSI Group McDonalds utilized technology to ensure that the food products did not go bad. This maintained the freshness and safety of the food that was being delivered. OSI Group was, therefore, able to guarantee the safety of the food that they delivered. OSI Group McDonalds are a big corporation now and the partnership is bringing a lot of food and custom solutions to their customers.
