OSI Group acquisition plans

OSI Group, the leading food processing and production company are based in Aurora, Illinois. OSI Group recognizes the need to have a company that does not just serve the local market but one that has a presence in various location in the world. OSI Group decided to venture outside of the country for the first time in 1992. They established their first business outside the United States in 1992 when they entered China. However, while the business goes global, it understands that there is a need for operations of a business to be localized.

According to the president of OSI Group, local businesses know how to cope with issues which touch on government regulations and cultural differences. When an international company is running multiple businesses in different locations, there can be a lapse in the implementation of business goals if the management does not have an understanding of the environment in which it is operating.

For OSI Group, they view themselves as a global company that has a presence at the grassroots level. They are a large –scale business which has a presence relies on the local management to help them run the business. For food business, it may not be possible for officials sitting in Chicago to know cultural issues or government regulations. Even if they knew, they might not have a way of resolving such problems.

For OSI Group, they see the best way to approach the issues as giving control of the company to the locals who understand the target market well. This has been the reason why OSI Group has been acquiring other businesses instead of building their plants and selling food product as OSI. In Europe, they have acquired one company called Baho. This a company that they will sell their product through. They will not enter the market as a new company, but they will be selling products that Baho is selling and still under their name. Baho will maintain its control of the market and management. They have a better understanding of the market than OSI would do while running from Chicago.
