The OSI Group is a firm that has successfully penetrated the global food and beverage sector for the past couple of years. It is well known for its delicious pizzas, sandwiches, vegetables, and sauces. The operations of the enterprise are managed from its main offices that are located in Aurora, Illinois. OSI’s current CEO is Sheldon Ravin, and he has played a great role in ensuring that it penetrates the international market. The company has currently established and acquired factories in different parts of the world.

The firm is focused on manufacturing all its products in an eco-friendly way. In 2014 and 2015, some of its plants managed to secure Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certificates. Branches that hold LEED certifications include OSI Ostróda and Henan Best Foods. In 2016, OSI started a partnership with Edeka, which is a grocery store chain that is located in Germany. Edeka is regarded as the largest supermarket business in Germany. OSI also has research and development centers that are located in Germany, the United States, and eastern Asia. These units enable the employees to come up with highly customized products.

OSI has established branches in different parts of Asia including India. It founded Vista Processing Foods in 1995, and the company has currently set up plants in various regions of the country. Vista has been running a vegetable processing factory since March 2012. The food processing company also operates businesses in Eastern Europe. It currently owns a processing plant in Poland, which distributes products to Poland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Finland, and Slovakia. OSI established a chicken processing plant in Hungary. The company invested $25 million in developing the plant, and its products are sold in 16 European countries.

The Illinois based company has made several acquisitions that have enabled it to penetrate the international market. The firm bought a southern Germany-based factory that is known as Flagship Europe. The business has specialized in dips, poultry, mayonnaise, and sauces. In 2016, OSI Group expanded its market in Europe by acquiring Baho Foods. The firm is made up of five major Germany and Netherlands-based factories that are called Bakx Foods, Q Smart Life, Vital Convenience, Bakx Foods, Henri van de Bilt, and Gelderland Frischwaren. In early 2017, the OSI Group expanded its supply in Germany by acquiring a food processing enterprise that is known as Hynek Schlachthof GmbH. The firm’s president, David McDonald, believes that it will establish more factories in future.
