Dutch Deli meats maker, Baho Food, impressed the brass at OSI Food Solutions snacks with its wide range of quality products and its huge presence in Europe. Operating under five subsidiaries, with processing plants in Germany and the Netherlands, Baho Food market to 18 European countries. This was just one of the moves made by OSI Group to enhance its reach, deliver the brand further, and achieve its quest of becoming the global leader in processed foods production.
The giant meat processor began its expansion with the acquisition of a processing plant in Chicago that was about to be closed down by Tyson Food Plant. The plant conveniently located close to an already existing OSI Group’s plant in the same state has a floor space of an impressive 20,000 square feet. This boosted the production capacity in Chicago and at the same time gave the company a boost in its goal to meet the rising demand of processed foods not just in the US but across the globe.
OSI Food Solutions also went further and purchased Flagship Europe from its parent company in Denver, Colorado. Renamed Creative Foods Europe, the company is set to bring Souse vide products and condiments to OSI Group’s already impressive product portfolio of meat products. Before being bought by OSI Food Solutions, Flagship Europe had made an earlier purchase of Calder Foods, and this was a bonus as it was in line with OSI Group’s vision of diversification and expansion.
Other than just buying up companies and plants, OSI Food Solutions carried out extensive rehabilitation of its plant at Toledo, Spain. An injection of capital to the tune of €17 million resulted in the addition of 22,000 square feet, and the installation of a high-capacity production line. This, in turn, led to more employment opportunities for the local population and an increment in output capacity, the facility now produces more than 45,000tons of meat products annually.
Not ready to lay back, OSI Group teamed up with Gen OSI opened up an 80,000 square feet meat processing plant at Canlubang Industrial Estate, Laguna in the Philippines. This was the latest in addition to the growing number of facilities carrying the OSI label. As a topping, OSI Food Solutions, UK was rewarded the prestigious Globe of Honor Award by the British Safety Council for its exemplary management of environmental risks.
