In an effort to establish control over its global meat business, OSI Group, Aurora, Ill., took the first step by announcing a new global trading platform. MPO (Meat, Poultry & Other) Global Trade, GmbH, located in Günzburg-Denzingen, Germany, will now operate as OSI’s global trading platform, focusing on poultry products from Brazil and Thailand to start.
MPO (an OSI Group company) will support both the primary processing and further processing assets in Europe and Asia.
“As a premier global food provider, OSI is continually looking for ways to be an even stronger partner to the world’s leading brands,” says Mark Richardson, vice president, global supply chain. “The international protein markets in which we participate have become more efficient, so we are implementing a new link in our supply chain to increase its strength.”
