OSI Group Hamburgers Supply Chain

McDonald has built its brand and amassed a large following of customers with high sales peaking 75 hamburgers in a second. The secret to the success has been attributed to the long lasting relationship between the OSI Group and McDonalds.

OSI Group is the main American firm that supplied McDonald’s hamburgers. During the formation days of McDonalds, the OSI was running its operations in the German village called Gunzburg. The two firms are not partners officially but there is a strong agreement that dates back to the inception of both companies.

During the hamburger making process, hygiene is given the first priority. Contrary to popular belief, there are no preservatives added to the meat. The meat is checked to ensure that there are no bones. The meat is then stored waiting for further processing.

Then the meat is minced with the blenders while eliminating the small bones. The minced meat is passed another machine that shapes the minced meat to form burger patties.

McDonalds has increased the production but in case the demand decreases in the near future, the OSI Group can turn over the earning model. The meat supplied by the OSI Group for the hamburgers is tested to ensure it complies with the European and national standards.

The OSI through its subsidiary in Spain, OSI Food Solution recently increases their ability n processing chicken. The firm added the latest capacity in their production line thus increasing the total chicken products per year to 24,000 tons.

The OSI Group expansion through the OSI Food Solutions increases the production of the chicken, beef and chicken products. The increase in production arises from the high demand for chicken products, especially in Portugal and Spain.

The management of the OSI is overlooked by the acting CEO Sheldon Lavin. He has experiences that spurn over 40 years ago when he made his debut in the firm. He has seen the growth of the firm from humble beginnings. From the supplier of the hamburger meat to a single client into a major business front with operations across the world. The firm has over 20,000 employees across the world.
