With the growing demand for chicken products on the menu, the company plans to double its production and distribution capacity of chicken. Its chicken solutions, such as chicken patties and nuggets, are distributed to many of the fast food chains. With chicken consumption on the rise, its major clients such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Papa John’s, and Starbucks, to name just a few, need to continue to meet customer demand. The same is true for OSI Food Solutions.
As part of an effort to increase their presence in Europe, the company acquired Baho Food. Baho Food is a Dutch company, and it distributes a variety of convenience foods, and deli meats in Europe. Subsidiaries of this company have food processing plants located in Germany and the Netherlands. With this acquisition, which occurred in 2016, OSI Food Solutions will be better positioned to meet its customers’ demands in those markets, as well as close to 20 other countries in Europe.
That was not the only acquisition for the company that year. The company also acquired a former Tyson Foods plant in Chicago. It manufacturered and distributed prepared meals at this location, including chicken pieces, meatballs, and chicken cordon bleu. Tyson Foods still maintains two other food processing plants in Chicago.
The company also acquired Flagship Europe in 2016. This company served the United Kingdom market. It produced and distributed food products such as frozen pies and frozen chicken, to the food service industry in the UK. Its parent company is the Flagship Food Group, located in Denver, Colorado.
