For OSI Food Solutions, earning prestigious awards and expanding their business presence, globally is an excellent example of strong corporate leadership in the food business.

For a billion dollar company like OSI Food Solutions, having strong senior leadership, which chooses to build key partnerships in emerging markets, globally, is big part of their winning strategy.

Over the years, OSI Food Solutions has attained some impressive business goals, received some impressive awards, and successfully expanded into many international markets. In December of 2016, one of OSI’s subsidiaries located in the UK, was awarded the Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council. This yearly award concerns those important companies in the UK that do exceptional work in the area of environmental safety.

Because of the impressive, veteran leadership of COO, David McDonald, and OSI’s CEO, Sheldon Lavin, OSI Food Solutions has made wise, yet confident decisions to expand into Europe. Based on the decision by senior leadership at OSI Food Solutions to add a larger market share in Europe, OSI purchased the Dutch company, Baho Foods, in August of 2016. This purchase of Baho Foods, as COO, David McDonald noted, provided their firm with a much stronger business presence in Europe.

With the acquisition of Baho Foods, OSI Food Solutions inherited exactly five subsidiaries — some of these companies having important food processing plants in Germany and in the Netherlands. These five subsidiaries, which are located in Europe, are named Henri van de Bilt, Vital Convenience, Gelderland Frischwaren, Q Smart Life, and Bakx Foods.

In December of 2016, OSI Food Solutions acquired Flagship Europe. It is a subsidiary of the Flagship Food Group, which is headquartered in Denver, Colo. Flagship Europe’s product line includes frozen poultry, sous vide products, pies, mayonnaise, and dressings. Flagship Europe is an important element of their UK food service sector.

President and COO of OSI Industries, David McDonald, quipped that the addition of Flagship Europe to their portfolio will provide an important presence in Europe for OSI. David McDonald also noted that Flagship Europe’s holdings, which include unique products and brands of food, will complement OSI’s current strengths. It will also help strengthen OSI’s capacity to best serve the customer’s changing tastes.

Located in Aurora, Ill., OSI Food Solutions is a private company that owns 60 facilities. It also also oversees many of their subsidiaries, and related work sites in 16 countries. OSI Food Solutions, which began as a small meat company called Otto & Sons, Inc., has been in business since 1909. OSI Food Solutions is a $6 billion dollar firm.
