The management team at the firm was excited to become part of the highly successful global brand after every acquisition. They promise to work together to realize new heights of success for the group. All the company’s acquisitions have received support.
Besides expanded markets, OSI Group also benefits from the additional products that Baho and other subsidiaries carry. Some of these include deli foods and quick bites.
The group acquired three strategic businesses in Europe and one processing plant from Tyson in Illinois. The other two European additions include Flagship Europe in the UK and Hynek Schlachthof, a prominent slaughterhouse located close to Frankfurt in Germany. The slaughterhouse ensures OSI Group gets direct access to fresh raw meat.
It also works to support local livestock farmers and sustainable sourcing of food supplies, something that is at the core of the firm’s business strategies. Flagship Europe has a strong distribution network in the UK and the rest of Europe.
Its product range is a perfect fit for OSI Group. Some of the additional products it brings to OSI’s table include fresh produce, marinades, and frozen poultry meat.
