OSI Industries Development Plans Locally, Europe And Spain

In the past five years, OSI Industries has taken serious steps in the local and global expansion process. The Chairman and the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Sheldon Lavin has facilitated the expansion processes in a significant way. The company made some acquisitions to boost its ability to serve the customers diligently.

One of these acquisitions involved Tyson Foods, a Chicago plant in 2017. The 200,000 square feet plant’s room would help OSI Industries to add more products like beef, pork and fast foods to name but a few for its North American market. The company can add more products to the Tyson Foods that specialized in poultry products.

Before acquiring Tyson Foods, OSI Industries had entered into a partnership with Flagship Europe in 2016. The United Kingdom Company supplies the European market with sauces, dressings, pies, and frozen poultry. However, the company rebranded to Creative Foods to capture global recognition. The merger of OSI and Creative Food would boost the supply to their customers as well as attract more customers through the presence of a good variety of products for customers to choose. Before the merger with OSI Industries, Creative Foods had partnered with Calder Foods, which added more products to its food portfolio. These included dips, sandwich fillings, and sauces to name but a few. A combination of the products of these companies would guarantee a steady supply all over Europe and beyond.

AS if that was not enough, OSI acquired Baho Foods, which targets the Netherlands and Germany markets. Baho Foods would help OSI to reach more customers through its five subsidiaries in eighteen countries. The top executives of Baho remained to oversee the operations of the two companies. In Spain, OSI Industries added a production line to its old Toledo plant to cater to the rising demand of its products in Spain and Portugal. The new line consisted of a high production line, improved storage facilities and lowered electricity consumption measures to name but a few. These changes boosted the production twice, and it guaranteed OSI a steady supply of its products. It also secured the company’s growth in Europe and beyond.
