OSI Food Group: Going Strong With the Acquisition of Tyson Food Plant

OSI Industries is proud to be a global leader in the production of value-added protein products, including meat, poultry products, customized sausage, pork products and items such as bacon and hot dogs. The company employs 20,000 people around the world and also has entities in 17 countries around the globe. In those 17 countries, OSI Industries has more than 60 operations within those countries. These operations consist of everything from plants, to distribution centers to companies that have been acquired by OSI Food Group throughout the years.

While OSI Industries has a massive global reach, the company is incredibly passionate about making sure it stays true to its American roots. The company is extremely proud to have its headquarters in the United States and always is looking to grow foothold in America. In fact, one of the company’s top commitments is to consistently expand in America, not just for the sake of expansion, but the company has a strong commitment to growing so that it can bring about additional manufacturing jobs to the United States. As OSI expands, the volume of jobs expands, which is a win-win for both the United States and for OSI as a company.

In fact, OSI Industries recently grew its United States portfolio with the purchase of a former Tyson Food plant. The plant was located in Southside Chicago and Tyson made an announcement in late 2017 that they would be closing the plant. This would mean that hundreds of people would begin to be laid off until the plant was closed. However, OSI saw this as a very strong investment and eventually acquired the plant. This acquisition saved nearly one thousand jobs in the Chicago area as well as allowed OSI to continue its expansion plan in the United States, specifically in Northeastern America.

OSI Industries has also recently acquired the large entity of Baho Food. The company is Dutch based and although it is one of the most popular household brands, as well as are the entities it owns. However the company was seen by OSI Industries as an incredibly smart acquisition due to the fact that the company also has a huge volume of entities in Europe, where it also has a strong presence. That presence continues to globally expand and under the umbrella of OSI group that expansion will now be fueled to grow at an even more rapid level.
