OSI Industries, a food processing company, has recently acquired Flagship Europe. Flagship Europe supplies frozen poultry, pies, and dressings to UK markets. This is a really amazing opportunity for Flagship Europe, with OSI Industries providing more resources and a larger client base to Flagship Europe, the company can grow and expand in to new markets. For OSI Industries it also extends the companies reach across Europe. The recent acquisition by Flagship Europe of Calder Foods, that supplies sandwich fillings, mayonnaise and dips further increases the reach of both Flagship Europe and OSI Industries. Adding Flagship Europe to OSI Industries company portfolio was truly a wise decision.
Another acquisition by OSI Industries was the recent purchase of a former Tyson Foods plant in South Side, Chicago, Illinois for a reported seven million four hundred thousand dollars according to Cook County records. When Tyson Foods shut down the plant, it said four hundred and eighty jobs would be lost. When OSI Industries stepped in, many of the jobs were offered to former Tyson employees saving many of the jobs the plant had produced. There is no telling how many of those many jobs were saved as OSI Industries doesn’t divulge information of its products or customers, but to those many workers, they are very thankful to still have a job. OSI Industries intends to provide the plant with the resources and support for the plant to grow. OSI Industries can now add this plant to its ever growing network to enhance capabilities to supply there customers.
OSI Industries has also seen a slurry of awards, such as the Globe Honour Award in twenty sixteen. This award is important because it shows how much OSI Industries cares about the environment. It is given by the British Safety Council for managing environmental risks. To receive this award, OSI Industries had to receive a five star rating from the British Safety Council and pass a demonstration of the companies environmental practices to independent environmental experts. Finally being presented the award by the trustees and staff of the British Safety Council was an amazing experience. The whole process is very rigorous, but totally worth while for the company.
