OSI Group is indisputably one of America’s best performing custom food service companies. In fact, it was recently included on the list of the top 100 companies. OSI specializes in custom food services and supplies hundreds of food outlets across the globe with its products. The company has carved a special niche for itself because it offers special services that few others provide. It has a watertight inspection team that keeps track of its products from the point when they leave the supplier to the actual restaurant where they are sold. OSI has over 65 outlets in 17 countries. It has a bias for meat products but has recently included other foods on its menu; if only to impress its customers’ diverse food preferences.
OSI Foods Continues to Grow
The acquisition of Flagship Europe is one of the many assertive strategies that OSI has employed to spread out to the rest of the world. The company has also acquired several other important installations and built a chicken processing plant in Spain at a cost of 17 million Euros. The chicken processing plant in Toledo area was built following increasing demand for OSI chicken products. The company management says it could not meet the demand with the existing processing units. It has boosted its capacity to 45,000 tones of meat products. OSI also acquired the Tyson owned plant in Chicago. The plant is located on a vast area of land and is strategically close to another OSI outlet.
Recent news reveals that OSI has acquired Flagship Europe. Flagship supplies the market with frozen chicken poultry products, pies, mayonnaise, dressings, and sauces. It has its clients, mainly, in the UK. On its part, Flagship had developed into a formidable food company with the acquisition of Calder Foods. With regard to the acquisition by OSI Group, Flagship Europe Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Russel Maddock says that the company is impressed with the successful deal that enables them to access vast amounts of resources for easy operations and meeting the customer needs. He pointed out that since they are now part of OSI group, they will also access new clients in new markets. OSI Chief Operating Officer and President, Mr. David McDonad observed that the purchase of Flagship Europe adds to its presence in Europe; a development that is part of OSI Group’s expansion agenda. He pointed out that the products that Flagship Europe specializes in are a major compliment to the products offered by OSI.
