OSI Group Continues With its Acquisitions Mission

According to the article on Gazette Day, when most of the people decide to go to the supermarket, they don’t think twice where the food originates. Consequently, when eating at a restaurant, it’s not expected to ask how the ingredients were bought. That food production type is an amazingly important business, but it’s good to know about those companies that provide such a service. One of the most established food production company is the OSI Group.

Many people probably don’t know that they have already enjoyed some products from the OSI for many years. The headquarters of the company is based in Aurora, IL, but that isn’t where OSI impact is ending. To the contrary, the company has a global reach, providing jobs and food to countries worldwide. Among its food items, the company is focusing its production on the protein items, of which some are packaged and then sold for a price at supermarkets globally.

Many other items are being served at the leading string restaurant all over the world. As a privately-held company under the direction of President David McDonald and CEO Sheldon Lavin, OSI currently is operating in 17 nations plus its always looking to grow its reach. OSI made its most recent purchase in Europe. For instance, under the direction of Lavin and McDonald, in August 2016, OSI acquired a controlling stake of Baho Food, a Dutch company with branches throughout the Netherlands and Germany.

At the time of purchase, Baho Food gave food to a total of 18 European countries. Under OSI leadership, there have plans of ramping up production plus increase sales. The expansion in Europe hasn’t stopped there. Also, OSI acquired Flagship Europe in the year 2016, taking over the production of condiments, pies, and frozen poultry of the company.

With OSI leadership support, Flagship Europe will be capable of engaging in upcoming opportunities on the continent of Europe, leveraging similar strategies that already gave OSI success in Asia and the U.S. Other recent activity of OSI include expansion in Germany and Spain.

OSI Group is positioned well in that they are having a global network, which is literally with the people from their organization in offices or even plants worldwide. They have a global operation, meaning that they have a scale in size, but they have local management teams who are sensitive and understanding of the local tastes and cultures. It is the global power scale plus efficiency together with local solutions
