OSI Group is already one of the biggest and most well known food service and production companies in the world. They boast large clients and quality facilities all around the world. But now, the company is continuing upward trend of growth even more.
Just recently, OSI bought some European companies and added it to their subsidiaries. This includes the giant Baho Foods, a Dutch company with German locations that services 17 European countries already. This, in addition to a focus on expanding into Spain should spell healthy profits and revenue for the company.
In addition to this, they bought out Flagship Europe, a company that produces pies, poultry, and various condiments for that market. But their growth isn’t limited to international opportunities. The firm also bought a failing Tyson factory in their home state of Illinois. The Chicago plant shutting down would have meant that about 500 hard working people would lose their jobs. Thanks to OSI’s $7.4 million purchase, it will continue to operate.
When asked what was responsible for their growth, the President David McDonald said it was their precise marketing plans and execution of the strategy. Specifically, they always aim to reach out to local communities in all of their locations to find out what they want so they can offer it. From organic, to natural, to cheap preferences, every community will respond to different things and OSI has excelled in meeting expectations.
One of the other unique things about the company is how standardized their production line is. They do this to ensure the quality and safety of their food products. For example, they have xrays fitted onto many factory lines to catch any outside objects before the food reaches stores and consumers.
The company has won numerous awards for their high quality and safety procedures in their factories around the world. And with 20,000 employees at over 65 locations in 17 countries, it’s very important that their standards are so high. It’s why they have brought unique food product solutions to companies like Starbucks, Pizza Hut, and Subway for a long time.
OSI was founded in 1909 in the town of Aurora, Illinois. It offers various food production services and distributes as well as sources the food. Their offerings include pizza, meat patties, bacon, veggies, dough, and more. The CEO is Sheldon Lavin and has lead many great initiatives within the company.
