Through the work that he has done, this company has beat off competition and emerged as the best company in the world. The company is currently expanding its operations to more locations around the world. It aims to reach all parts of the world.
OSI Food Solutions recently made several measures to expand its operations. Starting in 2016, it has acquired other companies, bought food plants and expanded food plants. The expansion of the company started with the purchase of a former Tysons Food plant in Chicago. This being the home area for OSI, they are going to benefit from the large space that this company offers. They bought the plant because they felt the need to keep to meet the demand of their products in the local market. With the new facility, they will now be in a position to produce more and supply the whole of North America market.
OSI Food Solutions then moved to another step. They acquired two companies in Europe. The acquisition is meant to make OSI establish better ties in the European market. As one of the lucrative markets in the world, they want to be in a position to supply more of their products here. They acquired a Dutch food company known as Baho Food and a UK based company known as Flagship Europe. Flagship Europe has since been renamed Creative Foods. These two companies will help the OSI to solidify its influence in the international market.
The Final step that OSI Food Solutions took to boost their operations was to expand one of their facilities in Europe. The plant in Toledo was expanded so that it could meet the high demand for chicken products that were coming from this region. After the expansion, production of chicken products has doubled.
