OSI Group is a food manufacturing organization that has been in business for over 100 years. OSI maintains its position as a leader in the industry by embracing change and pushing for growth on a consistent basis. Recent acquisitions such as the purchase of Tyson Foods, Flagship Food Group, Baho Foods and Turi Foods are examples of the moves that OSI Group has made to diversify its profile and create opportunity for new business transactions. OSI Group partnered with Turi Foods in an effort to strengthen its position in the country of Australia. A partnership was formed with OSI Industries Australia, which is a subsidiary of OSI Group. Turi Foods is the leading meat manufacturer in its country, with several plants operating throughout the region.
The company will maintain its independent operating procedures while relying on the tremendous resources of an internationally known company such as OSI. Tyson Foods was purchased by OSI Group in an effort to keep the company’s plants in operation. There were serious talks of closing the entire business down. This would have left hundreds of people without work. Leaders at OSI were able to secure the purchase and keep over 500 people from falling into unemployment. Flagship Food Group and Baho Foods are European food manufacturers with unique specialties. OSI conducted these mergers in order to strengthen its position in Europe. The business deal also opens up new markets. Baho Foods is a growing company that has subsidiary companies of its own.
Flagship Food Group specializes in mayonnaise and serving sauces. It will be a welcomed addition to the OSI structure as the organization pushes forward in the European region. OSI Group’s ability to recruit and retain top-level talent is the reason that the the company has sustained its position in the industry for so long. It is very important that management hire people who are looking to stay with the organization for the long term. This allows leaders to make decisions that will affect the company in years to come. They are able to trust the team to be consistent with their production. OSI has an international workforce that spans across 17 countries.
