OSI Group acquires companies whose products and brand complement theirs so as to broaden its presence across the world so as to serve the ever-changing needs of its customers. In this spirit, it recently acquired ownership of Baho Food, a Dutch manufacturer of fast foods, deli meats and snacks and Flagship Europe, Group, from the Flagship Food Group, Denver, Colo.
However, the amount used to purchase the Dutch company remains undisclosed. The Dutch company has five holdings with processing plants in Germany and the Netherlands which cater to customers in 18 European countries.
Flagship Europe provides products like mayonnaise, poultry, dressings and sauces to the UK food market. Flagship Europe also copped Calder Foods, a UK- based firm that provides sauces, marinades, etc. so as to extend its market.
The OSI Group has also acquired ownership of a Chicago plant so as to save the company and its remaining employees. The company, Tyson Foods, shut down one of its plants at 4201 s. Ashland Avenue which resulted in the loss of 480 jobs. Documents at the Cook County Recorder of Deeds show that the OSI Group acquired this plant at $7.4 million.
