While the food production and processing industry is very competitive, one company has continued to grow and do very well. The OSI Group is a company that is based out of the Chicago suburbs but has continued to expand across the world by making strategic purchases and sound business decisions. Over the past year, the company has made a number of purchases in parts of Europe and Asia.
One of the biggest investments and purchases that the OSI Group made in recently years was when the announced that they had purchased Flagship Europe, which is a company that is based out of Denver, CO. Flagship Europe is a part of the Flagship Food Group, which is a major competitor of the OSI Group. The Flagship Europe part of the company is that part that specializes in selling its products and services to areas of Europe.
The new acquisition will give the OSI Group a major new line of product offerings that it can provide. Flagship Europe was very well known for selling a wide line of food products including sauces, mayos, frozen meat, and a variety of other delicacy items. The company has a strong set of clients that are based all over Europe, the United States, and other parts of the world.
The purchase of the company is another major move made by the OSI Group to try and improve its footprint in the industry. Over the past few years the company has made several different moves that could help to expand its operations in Europe. This has included expanding on a current poultry-processing plan in Spain. This plant addition more than doubled the size of the plan and will greatly enhance the volume that the company can produce on an annual basis. OSI Group acquires Flagship Europe
