What gives the perfect bite to the legendary Big Mac or the trending Impossible Whopper? All burger lovers will have the same answer: it is the big juicy patty layered between sesame seed buns, sauces, and veggies. Very few people know that OSI, one of the largest private companies in the US, is the common denominator for their favourite Big Mac, Burger King Whopper, KFC, Starbuck breakfast sandwich, Pizza Hut, and meatless Impossible Whopper burger.
It all started in 1955 when OSI got selected as McDonald’s first supplier of fresh ground beef. It quietly became one of McDonald’s largest and oldest meat suppliers, producing high quality meat in more than a dozen countries.

Hire2Retire provided end to end data integration between UKG to AD and streamlined the identity provisoning by reflecting changes in AD in near real-time. This also paved the way for the smooth rollout of O365 as well as resulting in:
