OSI Group Expands Its Operations Nationally and Internationally

OSI Group is a private company based in Aurora, Illinois, USA. The company’s business revolves mainly on the provision of processed foods to the food service and retail industries all over the globe.

In a recent move to cover more territory in Europe OSI Group purchased a dominant supervisory ownership in Baho Food, which is a privately managed Dutch firm that is engaged in meat processing products along with other food products for the retail and food service sector. The merger and control agreement between the OSI Group and Baho Food is still underway.

Baho Food manages facilities in the Netherlands and in Germany together with its other holding companies namely QSmart Life, Bakx Foods, Henri van de Bilt, Vital Convenience, Frischwaren, and Genderland. The cited companies have around 60 years of presence in the industry of convenience snacks and foods along with the retail of deli meats that have been of service to customers covering 18 countries in Europe.

According to David G. McDonald, OSI Group’s Chief Operating Officer and President, the inclusion of Baho Food in OSI’s business in Europe will provide OSI with a larger market share in the European region. He said that Baho’s range of brands and products matches OSI’s present operating assets that enhance its ability to meet the different needs of the company’s clientele.

The Managing Director of Baho Food, John Balvers, will be retained together with his complete managerial team, who will work close closely with the Senior Management Leaders of OSI to develop a future program that will be beneficial for both companies in the long run.

John Balvers said that he is looking forward to working with the OSI Group, since OSI has successfully established a good relationship with its suppliers and customers. The combined assets of the two companies will give both the extraordinary leverage to serve their respective customers along with the capacity to provide more products and services. He added that the merger will hasten the attainment of their objectives and their steady growth for the future.

In conjunction with its procurement of Baho Foods’ s majority shares for management control, the OSI Group also publicly broadcasted its intention to purchase Tyson Foods in Chicago.

Amidst its merger and acquisition plans, OSI’ s main interest is the impact of its operations internationally as it endeavors to retain a viable and progressive relationship with the communities and people it serves within the food retail industry.
