David’s most remarkable moves at OSI

OSI’s global ventures stem with homebound branches across America and the global ones in China and Europe. The company has been operational in China for over 20 years with eight operational factories and two on the way. In China, OSI’s chief clients are Yum, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Papa John’s, Saizeriya, Subway and Burger King.

Another of OSI’s successful venture was the acquisition of Baho Foods food processing company with five subsidiaries across Netherlands and Germany. All these subsidiaries have been in operation for almost 60 years and are famed for their history in serving a variety of customers in 18 European countries.

Baho Foods gave OSI a prominent stake within European borders, and from David’s perspective, it was a growth move worth the taking
