OSI Group has been on the move to expand its territories especially on a global scale. Sheldon Lavin has been at the forefront in this new push by the food processing industry. The firm has made numerous acquisitions and established new plants in the last couple of years to this effect. Let’s take a look at some of these deals.
The chicken products are going to double thanks to the new plant that OSI Group has set up in Toledo. They expect to produce 24000 tons every single year. The plant has embraced technology that is sure to reduce energy consumption while improving general productivity. It will also create job opportunities for a number of residents. Operations like refrigeration and testing of products have also been improved in the new plant.
In 2017, the OSI Group made the 200,000 square feet Tyson food plant their own. The move spells great days ahead for clients from North America. Just like the expansion in Spain, the new addition was dedicated towards improving poultry products whose popularity was on the rise.
Netherlands and Germany
The OSI Group launched into this market with the acquisition of Baho Food. Other than increasing its customer reach, the acquisition allowed the company to offer more diverse products to its clients. Baho executives, who will keep their positions, expressed great delight in the new developments. They believed that this move will see them conquer the whole of Europe.
In the UK, Flagship Europe was added to the ranks of the food processor. This was done to further improve the steps that the firm had taken in conquering Europe. Food service businesses will receive sauces, pies and dressings among other products. A few months after the acquisition, Flagship Europe was rebranded and given the name Creative Foods Europe. These are just some of the many steps that the OSI Group has taken in bettering their global presence. Boasting of a history that spans more than 100 years, the firm has shown no signs of slowing down. In any case, better things are still in the pipeline. Having begun as a butcher shop, it took the food processing industry by storm and has not looked back. Only time will tell how far the Illinois based firm can go.
