OSI Group Acquisitions Of Baho Foods And Flagship Europe

OSI group was originally known as OSI Industries. Founded in 1909 this food processing company is located in Aurora, Illinois; just outside of Chicago. OSI group also has zonal offices in the Asia Pacific, Americas and Europe as well as world wide manufacturing locations.

OSI Group produces and sells food products to food service companies and retailers. Some of the products OSI produces are breakfast foods such as sausages and bacon, lunches, entrees, side dishes, desserts, snacks, hot dogs, pizza, processed and raw chicken as well as pork and corned beef products, dough based products, sandwich assembly products and cooked beef patties.

While OSI group produces and sells such a wide variety of food products world wide, some of their acquisitions have furthered their available product line and outreach.


In December of 2016, OSI group announced their acquisition of Flagship Europe. Flagship Europe was founded in 2013 in the United Kingdom. Prior to their acquisition, Flagship Europe was a popular food supplier to the United Kingdom. They specialized in production of pies from the award winning Oliver James as well as side dishes, poultry products, mayonnaise, salad dressings, and sauces. Prior to their own acquisition, Flagship Europe acquired Calder Foods which expanded their own product base to marinades, sauces, dips and sandwich fillings. The acquisition of Flagship Europe by OSI group extended OSI group’s European market base and added to their variety of products available.

Another European expansion acquisition in 2016 for OSI group was Baho Foods. Baho Foods was a food production and distribution leader in Germany. Some products produced by Baho were roasted pork products, poultry products, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers, bacon and ham products and gyros. Baho had five subsidiaries in Germany and the Netherlands and served customers in 18 countries through out Europe.
