One of the most prominent food processors in the world is known as OSI Food Solutions. This Illinois-based company has a huge network of customers and clients that span all around the world. OSI Food Solutions may be headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, but it has a number of factories and facilities in Poland, China, Brazil, China, Germany, India, Hungary, Spain, Austria and many other locations. This company is composed of innovation-culinary centers, test kitchens and pilot plants. In America alone, OSI has factories in the state’s of California, Utah, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin.
OSI Food Solutions has been able to enjoy extreme success because it has expanded into untapped markets. These untapped markets are located in foreign countries throughout Europe and Asia. Back in 2016, OSI acquired two of Europe’s most popular food processors. BAHO Food, a Dutch-based food provider, now falls under the controlling rule of OSI. Eighteen markets thrive from the services of BAHO Food, and since this particular acquisition took place, OSI will have controlling rule of BAHO’s five subsidiary companies. Some of the companies that are represented under this business move are Q Smart Life, Vital Convenience and Bakx Foods.
Flagship Europe has faced the same fate as it was taken over by OSI Food Solutions in 2016. Flagship Europe was just as successful as BAHO foods, but this company specializes in the production of sauces, marinades, dips and dressings. “Flagship Europe’s portfolio also compliments OSI really well, which has helped to make this an easy transfer,” said president David McDonald. OSI is trying to strengthen it foundation in the marketplace, and these acquisitions have certainly personified this action to the fullest. In the end, OSI Food Solutions will continue to explore new markets as long as the demand is fully in place.
