OSI Industries, Food Processing Company

OSI Industries, a food processing company that produces products such as sausage and bacon recently acquired Flagship Europe. Flagship Europe supplies products to the UK service markets such as frozen poultry and pies among other products. This is a great opportunity for Flagship Europe to expand its client base and receive additional resources from OSI Industries. This is also great for OSI Industries as well. OSI Industries will not only be gaining Flagship Europe, but also Calder Foods which was acquired earlier by Flagship Europe. Calder Foods produces items such as sauces, mayonnaise and dips. OSI Industries will be gaining a number of complimentary products and brands as well as increasing foothold in Europe. These benefits are certainly worth the acquisition.

Another amazing purchase by OSI Industries is a new plant. OSI Industries recently acquired the plant from Tyson Foods. It is located in the South Side of Chicago, Illinois and is said to have cost nearly seven million four hundred thousand dollars according to Cook County records. When Tyson Foods wanted to close the plant, they said that the four hundred and eighty jobs were to be lost. Then OSI Industries stepped in. Many of the workers that were employed there were retained. Although there is no way of knowing how many as OSI Industries does not give out information on its products or customers. Even so many of the workers are very happy that the stepped in. The new plant is expected to improve OSI Industries capabilities and manufacturing network.

There is also more good news for OSI Industries. They have won the Globe of Honour Award. This is presented by the British Safety Council for superior management of environmental risks. This is a hard fought and won award. First they had to receive a five star rating from the British Safety Council. Then had to pass and independent team of environmental expert inspectors. There approach in placing the environment on equal footing with health and safety is what makes there business unique and sustainable. For OSI Industries this was totally worth while. With an eye for the future, it is very likely that OSI Industries will have a profound and long lasting one.
