OSI Food Solutions has been expanding its operations in different parts of the globe in the last two years. There has been significant activity especially in Europe, where the company has been doing a great job of trying to grab as many customers as possible.
The company started by purchasing a food plant in Chicago. The food plant was a combination of a warehouse and a food processing facility. The plant was formerly owned by Tyson Foods and occupies over 200,000 square feet. It gives this company enough space to carry out its food production activities which are aimed at increasing its supplies in the local market in North America. The step that this company has taken will lead to more growth in the future.
OSI Food Solutions recognizes that the tastes and preferences of the customers keep on changing. We have a new generation which is interested in different foods from the ones that the older generation consumed. A company in the industry must, therefore, remain relevant by focusing on the production of the products which meet the needs of the people. This company is ready to use the increased space that it now has in the plant in Chicago to bring more products to the market.
The headquarters of OSI Food Solutions is in Aurora, Illinois. The company is the best producer of value-added products. It has a wide variety of protein-foods that it supplies to the people. Currently, the company is doing very well in terms of expansion. It has increased its production capacity by building over 65 food plants in the region. It has also increased its presence in over 17 countries. OSI has made a number of attempts to increase its production further through the acquisition of established food plant in Europe.
In 2016, OI Food Solutions acquired two firms in Europe. They are Baho Foods and Flagship Europe. The reasons for the acquisition was to expand food production in Europe. The company is trying to win the hearts of many customers in different parts of the world, and one of the best ways of doing this is by working with already established companies like these ones.
OSI Food Solutions is leaving nothing to chance when it comes to expansion. Its CEO, Sheldon Lavin wants to leave a great legacy after he departs from leadership. Although he has not indicated plans for retirement, his is age has progressed so much that at some point there will be a change of guard in top leadership.
