OSI Group Acquires Tyson Food Plant And Baho Foods

The OSI Group is a award winning global food provider that always ensures the highest quality of foods and holds itself up to some of the industry’s most rigorous standards.

OSI recently acquired a Tyson Food Plant in Chicago, Illinois for $7.4 million and many who were going to lose their job due to a possible plant shutdown were offered to stay on with OSI after the acquisition. The 200,000 square-foot facility is close to another OSI Chicago based facility and will help to support growth for OSI and help to meet the needs of their customers.

Since OSI Group won the 2016 Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council, an award that recognizes companies whom hold themselves up to the highest standards of health; safety; and environmental concerns, the people of Chicago can be proud knowing that their food is being served up by a premier provider that always holds the people it serves as its number one concern.

Aside from Tyson Foods, OSI Group recently purchased Baho Foods, which is a dutch manufacturer of convenience foods, snacks and deli meats serving the food service and retail segments. Baho has five companies with processing plants in the Netherlands and Germany, which include Vital Convenience, Gelderland Frischwaren, Henri van de Bilt, Q Smart Life, and Bakx Foods. John Balvers, managing director of Baho Foods, and his management team were more than happy to stay on and work as part of the OSI Group. John felt that, “With our combined strengths we will be even better able to support our customers in realizing their strategy and offer them a broader product portfolio. This transaction will accelerate our growth strategy and support us in jointly realizing our goals.” OSI Group continues to expand its presence and serve people up foods that are held to industry-high safety and health standards.
