OSI Industries is on the Forefront of the Food Service Industry

OSI Industries has acquired Baho Foods. OSI, with its headquarters in the Illinois city of Aurora, took on the Dutch manufacturing entity. Baho Foods and its inventory of snacks, convenience foods and deli meats fits right in with the OSI offerings of meat, chicken, pizza, kettle and smoked products and sandwich assembly. Both teams are excited about the acquisition as its gives each side added value and a wider range of capabilities while serving the needs of clients. Baho has the Netherlands and Germany based processing plants while serving clients in more than 15 countries.

The plan was to keep the Baho management team intact while integrating the companies into one. The acquisition gives OSI and Baho added strength that can only add to a more productive and more profitable growth strategy. The combined company will better serve clients, as well as offering a wider variety of products.

To further support growth, OSI Industries acquired Flagship Europe. The company supplies mayonnaise, sauces and dressings, sous vide products and poultry to the United Kingdom foodservice industry. Both companies have access to new capabilities, as well as an additional customer base and are better prepared to serve an expanded market. Prior to the acquisition by OSI, Flagship acquired Calder Foods. This particular company is a supplier of dips for food to go, mayonnaise, sauces, marinades and sandwich filling, which further increases the company offerings.

Individuals, whether experienced or just starting out, looking for the opportunity to be part of a team that not only encourages, but offers support to grow to a greater potential will find such opportunities with OSI.

The history of OSI Industries goes back more than 100 years when a man named Otto Kolschowsky began a family owned and operated meat market in Illinois. Several years later, the business was expanded to a wholesale meat market and established a reputation for providing quality products. When McDonald Hamburgers first opened their doors in Illinois Kolschowsky was chosen to provide fresh ground beef patties for its operation..
