“This is another exciting and progressive development for Flagship Europe,” said Russell Maddock after the company was acquired by OSI Food Solutions.
Flagship Europe is only one of the smaller companies that was recently acquired by OSI, a giant in the food industry. Baho Foods, along with all of its subsidiaries, and an old Tyson chicken production facility were also recently purchased by OSI Food Solutions.
OSI’s willingness to expand and their partnership with many fast food heavyweights, such as McDonald’s, has enabled them to become one of the top food production companies in the entire world. The company may have began as a simple butcher’s shop in the early 1900s, but now it is an international force in the food industry, having operations in 16 countries with over 60 buildings.
OSI is not only a force to be reckoned with in the food industry; it is also paramount in setting an example for other companies in concerns with environmental waste management. In fact, in 2016, the British Safety Council awarded OSI with its prestigious Globe of Honour Award – an award that is only given to companies that show excellence when in comes to environmental management. Along with 17 other companies, OSI Food Solutions was honoured at Drapers’ Hall in London on November 25, 2016. The occasion marks the second time OSI has won the award.
“On behalf of the trustees and staff of the British Safety Council, I sincerely congratulate OSI Food Solutions UK Ltd on winning a Globe of Honour for 2016,” said the Chair of the British Safety Council Lynda Armstrong.
OSI continued into 2017 with just as much steam, upping chicken production at their Toledo, Spain branch. The building went from producing 12,000 tons to 24,000 tons of chicken annually. The change also added 20 more job to the plant.
Time will show what OSI Food Solutions future plans are.
