OSI Food Solutions Makes Some Very Exciting Expansion Moves
OSI Food Solutions is a popular customized food solutions company that has been in business since 1909 when its founder Otto Kolschowsky immigrated to the United States from Germany to start a food company. His company rapidly expanded over the years until it became a global food business that operates out of many different countries. Recently, OSI Food Solutions in the United Kingdom was honored with the Globe of Honour Award for 2016. The award was given to the company by the British Safety Council and is given to companies who manage environmental risks in an exemplary way. The companies that make it for final consideration for the award must have already passed the British Safety Council’s rigorous standards and proven that they manage environmental risks from top-to-bottom in their company.
OSI Food Solutions, in its continuing efforts to expand, recently purchased a former Tyson Foods plant that is located in Chicago. The company bought the factory for $7.4 million and offered jobs to many of the employees that were set to lose theirs when the Tyson Foods plant closed. The plant measures out to an astounding 200,000 square-feet and is in the same area as another OSI facility. It is expected that the new facility will be able offer infrastructure for its business in the area as well as the rest of the country.
OSI Food Solutions also purchased Baho Food, which is Dutch company that manufactures convenience foods, snacks, and deli meats. The President of OSI, David McDonald, was positive about the purchase and commented that Baho Food would help to grow the company’s European offerings. He went on to say that what the company has to offer is a nice complement to the offerings of OSI and that the purchase would help to better serve its customers in the region. Bahoo Food has facilities in the Netherlands and Germany and has subsidiaries including Vital Convenience, Gelderland Frischwaren, Henri van de Bilt, Q Smart Life, and Bakx Foods. John Balvers, the Managing Director of Baho Food, remarked that he is excited about joining forces with OSI Food Solutions and that the partnership will certainly benefit both companies’ customers.
