OSI Food Solutions is one of the largest companies in the U.S., though many may not have ever heard of them before. Whether you have or haven’t heard the name before, you’ve doubtlessly eaten an OSI product: They supply meat and produce to many major food companies and brands, supplying processed food products to a variety of companies around the world. OSI Food Solutions was the original supplier of hamburger patties for McDonald’s when it began expanding as a franchise business in the 19050’s and have been steadily growing ever since. Founded by a German immigrant in 1909, OSI Food Solutions began as a family-run, neighborhood business in a Chicago suburb.
Still based in Maywood, Illinois, the company once known as Otto & Sons has undergone several stages of evolution as it has grown to become OSI Food Solutions. A great American success story, OSI charts its growth from a turn-of-the-century local meat market to a major company operating 65 plans in 17 countries. Opening its first self owned and operated processing plants in the 1970’s, OSI Food Solutions has grown internationally. With branches in markets like China, the Philippines and Europe, OSI’s growth has been steady. Hiring local management and using local food producers has helped OSI operate in so many different markets successfully, employing unique strategies in each region to ensure success.
Maintaining a reputation for food safety has helped grow the OSI brand. The company has won awards and recognition in several countries for its safety practices and this reputation has allowed them to gain direct clients over the years. In addition to still being a major supplier for McDonald’s, OSI also supplies companies like Subway, Pizza hut and Starbucks. They have grown to supply various produce as well as meats. OSI partners with many charitable groups to help provide nutritional food assistance for those who do not have access to in both domestically and abroad. Partnerships include the Feed America campaign and the Ronald McDonald House Charities. It also works with local groups in other markets to provide the same charitable offerings to all their customers.
One of the most famous Italian fashion house Prada Group has formed a merger with China’s largest retailer, JD.com. In this partnership agreement, Prada Group has launched an authorized flagship outlet on JD.com on June 17. The merger was publicized as a segment of JD’s June 18 (“618”) anniversary sales festival. Brands under Prada Group, Miu Miu and Car Shoe will also launch their flagship outlets on JD.com on June 17. This was part of the merger agreement between Jd.com and Prada Group. In addition to this, the new Prada outlet offers the upcoming fall/winter collection. This merger benefitted both parties. JD.com’s total sales reached new levels of $29.2 billion because of its June 18 Anniversary Sale (“6.18”).
The key drivers for these outstanding results were new products and brands like Prada, and Chinese consumer’s interest in high-quality brands/products. On the other hand, Prada Group also reported double-digit growth of their company and it is planning to set up an online presence for the majority of its sub-brands by the end of 2020. This merger between both of the companies represents a major part of Prada Group’s digital strategy in the Chinese market. Prada Group using this strategy also gained an advantage because JD.com has created a specific channel inside its stage to promote new brands by making them simple for buyers to discover, and helping brands get new customers leading to more sales.
“Prada is synonymous globally with the highest taste in fashion and luxury, and it is truly an honor to welcome them to our online platform,” said Kevin Jiang, President of International Business at JD Fashion and Lifestyle. “International brands are increasingly recognizing the power of JD when expanding into China’s burgeoning luxury market, and we look forward to helping Prada connect with China’s sophisticated consumers.” In the year 2018, JD’s annual June 18 anniversary shopping festival celebrates the company’s founding. This festival gave customers a chance to enjoy a variety of promotions and exclusive deals on many different products and brands, with more than 90 percent of major brands introducing a new array of products this year.
