OSI Group has been concentrating on national and international growth during the previous five years. Sheldon Lavin entered the business in the 1970s. Since then he directs and fuels the business to global expansion. The company’s recent acquisitions boost its expansion significantly.
In Toledo Spain, OSI Group recently expanded its capability to process chicken. The organization added a new high capacity production line that enables the production of 24,000 tons of chicken yearly. With this expansion, the business is able to produce a total of 45,000 tons of beef, pork and chicken products.
The company also acquired Tyson Foods plant in Chicago, in 2017. The plant is 200,000 square feet. These give room for the group to increase production in North America. The plant will enable the organization to produce various types of food products. The facility will also aid the group to meet the growing needs of its customers.
In Dec. 2016 OSI Group purchased Flagship Europe to broaden its reach in Europe and United Kingdom. Flagship Europe supplies frozen poultry, dressings, sauces and pies for food service industries. Before its acquisition, Flagship Europe had extended its reach with the purchase of Calder Foods. Calder Foods distributes dips, sandwich fillings, sauces and other foodstuffs. OSI Group procurement of Flagship Europe enables the company to increase its reach and improve its position in the market. The purchase also enables the company to enter new territories in Europe, as they improve their services in their current markets.
Lastly, the company acquired Baho Food. Baho Food produces deli meats and different other food snacks. The organization markets its food business in Germany and the Netherlands. OSI Group purchased the corporation to widen its reach into the Netherlands. Baho Food is present in 18 European countries and supports five of its branches in Germany and the Netherlands.
Furthermore, the procurement positions the company to expand to other regions of Europe since Baho Food supplies to other businesses in several countries. The purchase of Baho strengthens the company’s current product line, enabling it to improve its capability to serve their customers’ changing needs.
