Investments in Chicago
OSI Industries made a bold and lucrative investment by purchasing the Tyson Foods Plant in Chicago. Consisting of over 200,000 square feet, the plant provides sufficient space for the food service company to spur production and meet the ever-increasing needs of North American clients. Even though the plant was initially designed to enhance poultry production, the company pulled out all the stops to transform it into a diverse food production facility.
Breaking Boundaries with Various Acquisitions in the U.K
As a testament to its global reach, the leading food service provider made a historic milestone by purchasing Flagship Europe in December 2016. Such an ambitious venture is aimed at increasing its presence across the United Kingdom and various parts of Europe. Currently, the U.K-based food plant specializes in the distribution of sumptuous pies, dressings, frozen poultry and tantalizing sauces for various food service businesses. With the latest acquisition, the former Flagship Europe was expeditiously renamed to Creative Foods Europe to tap into the company’s diverse capabilities.
Equally important is the company’s latest purchase of Calder Foods, a food service provider specializing in dips, sandwich fillings and sauces to captivate customers’ various taste buds. According to a verified source from Creative Foods Europe, the new acquisition by the top food service company produces a ripple effect by strengthening the company’s position in the marketplace.
Business Interests in Spain
The enterprise’s significant investment in Toledo, Spain speaks volumes about its commitment to dominating the global market. With the construction of a high-capacity production line, the leading food service provider has boosted its poultry production from 12,000 to 24,000 tons annually. The significant investment is also expected to increase animal-based protein production to 45,000 tons.
