OSI Group, a high-quality global food provider with unmatched safety, health, and environmental standards has recently expanded its operations by acquiring a new food plant and purchasing two other companies.
Its acquisition of the Tyson Food Plant in the south side of Chicago for $7.4M will help to enhance another facility it already has in the area. Jobs were also offered to the over 200 employees who were about to lose theirs when the plant was set to shut down. The local community and America at large will benefit greatly from the acquisition, especially because OSI brings with it higher standards than many other food service providers.
OSI Group also purchased Flagship Europe from the Flagship Food Group, which supplies pies, frozen poultry, sous vide products, sandwich fillings, marinades, sauces, mayonnaise and dips, and dressings to the UK food service market. Russell Maddock, chief executive of Flagship Europe is happy with the decision and believes it will help with the progressive development of the company. He feels that, “The increased resources that will become available to us, along with the access to new clients and global markets as part of the OSI Group, will strengthen our position in the marketplace, improve our proposition and open up new opportunities that will enable us to serve our customers better and support our already successful business.” Flagship Europe will most definitely benefit from the acquisition.
Baho Foods, a Dutch manufacturer of convenience foods, snacks, and deli meats serving the food service and retail segments in the Netherlands was recently purchased by the OSI Group. John Balvers, the managing director of Baho Foods is ecstatic and looks forward to developing new growth strategies. His management team will also stay on and help to support and provide their customers with all of the excellence and high standards that OSI Group is well-known around the world for.
