The aggressive expansion plans of global food production giant OSI Industries are continuing to unfold. Although the company already has customers in 85 countries worldwide and over 65 facilities for food production located in almost two dozen countries, OSI Industries is making a concerted effort to increase its customer base and production capacity in Europe. This is in addition to its growing presence in China, India, the Philippines, Australia, Brazil, Mexico and all over the United States. Once a small family meat market, the Aurora, Illinois based company is now among the 100 largest American companies.
Europe is now a major target of OSI Industries expansion efforts. Although it already has a presence in Eastern, Western and Central Europe and food processing facilities in Hungary and Poland, the company is still aggressively expanding its customer base through innovation and acquisition. OSI Industries recently upgraded its pork, beef and chicken processing plant in Toledo, Spain by installing high capacity production lines. The Spanish facility can now produce over 45,000 pounds of meat. This enables it to serve a growing number of customers in Spain, France and other countries nearby.
OSI Industries also purchased Flagship Europe. The company which has its headquarters in London, England, provides pies, fillings, dressings, sauces, condiments and dips for the UK’s food service market. Acquiring Flagship Europe was a progressive, exciting development for OSI Industries. It increased their resources and gave them access to more global markets and new clients. Plus, the acquisition enhanced the already successful business and strengthened the company’s position in the international food production and distribution industry.
While adding Flagship Europe to their portfolio was a major coup for OSI Industries, the company’s expansion efforts continue. They recently snapped up Holland based Baho Foods. The company manufactures a portfolio of products that include convenience foods, deli meats and snacks at its facilities in Germany and the Netherlands and distributes them to clients spread out through 18 countries in Europe. Adding a company with such a large and diverse European customer base is very important to the executive team at OSI Industries. The company feels it’s vital to continue to expand its customer base in Europe.
Even with its exponential growth, OSI Industries is committed to maintaining its high food and worker safety standards and responsible environmental management. In 2016, OSI Industries was awarded the British Safety Council’s Globe of Honor for the third time.
