2016 Acquisitions Fuels OSI Group’s Growth
2016 was a busy year for the global food provider OSI Group. The company made a couple of purchases, which added to its network of over 65 facilities across 17 countries.
OSI Group, which provides custom food products, food processing, and food quality assurance capabilities to its customers, purchased the private Dutch company Baho Foods and a former Tyson Foods processing plant in Chicago.
For almost 60 years, Baho Foods has manufactured food products such as deli meats, snacks, and convenience foods for the foodservice and retail industries. They have plants in the Netherlands and Germany, and they serve customers in 18 countries in Europe. OSI Group operates out of eight European countries, and the acquisition of Baho Foods gives the company access to more markets and customers in Europe.
OSI Group’s acquisition of a food processing facility and storage warehouse, which was once operated by Tyson Foods, gives the company the ability to support its growth. Tyson Foods closed the 200,000-square foot plant in November of 2015 to consolidate the workload into other existing plants. This facility is near Chicago, where OSI Group has an existing facility. The needs of OSI Group’s customer base are evolving, and by purchasing other companies and food processing facilities, OSI Group is putting itself in a position to meet the needs of its customers.
