On July 13, the Secretariat of International Relations of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply revealed the results of the report on exports of Brazilian agribusiness for the month of June. Flavio Maluf, president of Eucatex stated that the report showed a decrease of 0.7% compared to the same time the previous year.
As both the CEO of a family owned and operated global conglomerate and the son of a prominent Brazilian government official, Maluf knows a thing or two about governmental reports. While some might see the downturn as cause for alarm, Maluf seemed to put a very different spin on things. Maluf took pains to point out that soybeans account for more than 50% of Brazilian agribusiness exports and agribusiness exports alone account for more than 45% of Brazil’s total exports.

In the first half of 2018 alone, Brazil exported more than 46.27 tons of the grain which generated revenues of US $18.43 billion. In a survey conducted by the Brazilian Supply Company (Conab), they estimated that soybean production would reach 119 million tons, with a total of 72 million tons going towards exports. That amount would exceed last year’s volume by 5.6%. Compared to the first half of 2017, Brazil has increased their export yield by 5.2% and reaped a 10.6% increase in value, which resulted in an overall average price increase of 5.1%.
Agribusiness in Brazil encompasses small, medium and large producers whose efforts are largely coordinated by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply. Through efforts geared towards creating both sustainable development and competitiveness, the aim of the ministry is to provide food security for the country’s own citizens as well to create a surplus for export. The overall aim of the ministry is to stimulate the national productive sector to eventually make Brazil a global force in the international economy.

OSI Group, one of America’s largest, privately-owned meat processing companies, has made no secret about its policy of aggressive growth in recent years.
Key acquisitions and mergers on an international scale are part of an overall strategy to expand the company’s global reach and presence, while also maintaining extraordinarily high standards for quality, safety and environmental sustainability.
OSI President David McDonald said an essential element of his company’s modus operandi has been to create “dynamic and successful partnerships.” A recent example is the OSI merger with Turi Foods, an Australian-based firm headquartered in Thomastown, Victoria. It has a number of facilities operating throughout this southeast Australian state.
Turi serves supermarkets, fast-food restaurants, butcher shops, specialty chicken retail business models and roasted chicken dealers. It is among the largest businesses of its kind in Australia. Merging with OSI seemed a natural choice for both companies.
David McDonald said both Turi and OSI have built strong reputations with customers. With this merger he sees enormous potential to innovate like never before using the combined capabilities and unique inroads both companies have nurtured over years of operation.
Upon completion of the Merger, Turi will become Turosi Pty Ltd. Sam Cuteri is Chairman of Turi Foods. He touted the “similar corporate cultures” of OSI and Turi. This will provide a synergy to create a “world-class food solution group,” he said.
Mr. Cuteri is an immigrant to Australia from Italy. He started as a humble laborer for a small chicken processor when first arriving. After learning the business from top to bottom, he established his own operation in 1976 — a company that would eventually become Turi foods.
While Tutri goes back some 40 years, OSI Group is one of America’s most venerable companies with more than a century of operation. Like Turi Foods, OSI Group was founded by a hard-working immigrant with a dream. German immigrant Otto Kolschowski started off with a basic butcher shop in 1909. That small family operation grew into what is today a $6 billion annual revenue company with 65 operation in 17 countries around the world.
David McDonald has been president of OSI for more than 30 years. Like his counterpart at Turi Foods, McDonald hails from humble beginnings. He grew up on a small family farm in northeast Iowa. After graduating from the University of Iowa with an agriculture degree, he started work at OSI on “the bottom rung.”
David McDonald worked his way to the top of OSI where he remains among the most successful and enduring company presidents in the United States.
