OSI Group recently acquired Flagship Europe, a company based in the United Kingdom that supplies a wide variety of food products including pies, sauces, and frozen poultry. OSI is one of the largest companies of its kind in the world when it comes to producing food with operations in 17 countries around the world. This purchase will help OSI expand even more in the European market and allow them to supply their current customers with even more products to meet their needs.
Before OSI Group acquired Flagship Europe, they had recently expanded their offerings with the Food To Go program. This took place after they purchased the company Calder Foods who provides sauces, dips, mayonnaise, and sandwich fillings. Flagship is excited about the transaction and believes that it will bring big things for both companies. They now have access to many resources from OSI that will help them gain a stronger place in the food market. To know more about the company click here.
The Chief Operating Officer and President of OSI David McDonald believes that the products offered by Flagship compliment the line that is already being offered by OSI Group. This expansion of offerings will be very useful to their customers whose food supply needs are constantly changing. He states that they are on the lookout for new ways to support the evolving demands of their customers around the world. By bringing on board the team at Flagship, he will be able to have new insight on the region that the company served before the acquisition. Each region has their own specific needs and demands that the local companies are familiar with.
OSI Group is a well-known icon of the Midwest in the United States. Based out of Chicago, they have been doing business for more than a decade. What began as a humble butcher shop ran by a German immigrant has grown to an international business that continues to expand to this day. The company first began to expand considerably in the international market in the 1980’s and 1990’s due to their close relationship with the fast-food chain McDonald’s. Their vision to constantly grow and improve hasn’t changed and their loyal customers appreciate that.
