For CSI Group, partnerships are symbiotic which help to launch both parties into greatness. One of the most notable partners of the CSI Group is the McDonalds. At the time of the alliance formation, both the two family businesses were quite small. Both are mutually realizing the expansion potential that came with the post-war economic recovery. They both could recognize that they needed to depend on each other to lift themselves up. This partnership would be a significant partnership that would last many decades after. It is remarkable how OSI group would maintain wonderful partnerships while running a McDonald wing of the business. A show of maturity by both partners.
At the heart of the growth of the OSI Group is innovation. The OSI group is out looking for better ideas and better ways to do what they do. One of such innovations was the flash freezing technological advancements adopted as early as 1960. The Flash freezing technology would allow OSI Group to cut losses due to food going stale, reduce running costs and eventually allow for expansion.
