The OSI Group has expanded its market share by buying of different food companies located in various parts of the world. The company in 2006 acquired a Netherlands based company known as Baho Food Group. Just like OSI Group, Baho Group processed meat and also produced food services and other retail products. Baho consisted of five subsidiary companies. The Baho firms had been in food processing industry for about 60 years. They dealt with snack foods, convenience foods, and deli meat. In Europe, Baho Group together with their subsidiaries served over 18 countries. Acquisition of Baho helped the OSI to strengthen European presence.

In June 2016, Tyson Food, a Chicago based plant was sold to OSI group for $7.4 million. Tyson had in the previous year publicly announced that the company would be shut down. They announced that over 480 employees would lose their jobs after the company shut down 4201 S. Ashland Ave. facility by October 1. When OSI bought Tyson Food, only 250 employees were operating the plants. OSI Group employed all the remaining Tyson Foods employees. The Chicago facility was used to maximize the Group’s manufacturing needs.

Due to its location, the U.K foodservice market was well serviced by the Flagship Europe. Frozen poultry, dressings, mayonnaise, sauces, and pies were some of the products offered by Flagship Europe. The company purchased Calder Foods that is located in Europe and which produced food options and mayonnaise dressings and dips. OSI Industries in 2016 acquired the Flagship Europe. The acquisition has helped them to widen their market in the United Kingdom. In addition to expanding the market outreach, OSI Group will be able to satisfy their customers’ demands with the expansion of the food products the group can make available to the foodservice industry by acquiring Flagship Europe.
