Below are some of the companies OSI has purchased and acquired to expand their business both locally and globally.
- In the year 2017, OSI Group purchased Tyson foods plant in Chicago expecting to increase company’s production capacity and satisfy all their customers in the region. There was an increasing demand for OSI’s products in North America, and with this expansion most probably the company could satisfy the market.
- In the year 2016, OSI Industries acquired Flagship Europe expecting to reach more of their customers in the United Kingdom among other places in Europe. After some time, the company was renamed from Flagship Europe to Creative Foods Europe to help describe the services and products of the company. The food plant in the UK distributes frozen poultry, pies, sauces and dressings for food service. This acquisition is expected to significantly improve the company’s market position in the region and also improve the services they offer in the current market.
- OSI Group also expanded their operation in Toledo, Spain with the aim of boosting their poultry production in the region. Previously they had an output of about 12,000 tons per annum, but after a new food solution plant was established, the output can go up to about 24,000 tons every year. The plant therefore improved annual output of pork, beef and chicken products to about 45,000 tons per annum. Apart from increased output in Toledo, the company can now enjoy better facilities for refrigeration and receiving among other operations.
- OSI Group also acquired Baho Food, a company that produces snacks and deli meats, which gets marketed in Germany and Netherlands. The main aim of acquiring this company was to improve their market position in the Netherlands and some regions in Europe where Baho Food has been serving. Baho’s product portfolio is strong enough to help OSI satisfy the evolving needs of customers in the region. All these purchases and acquisitions by OSI Group has greatly improved its presence in Germany, Netherlands and 18 European nations.
