They can provide whatever taste profile and other specifications any particular partner requires for their operations. Each of their food processing facilities includes a test kitchen where they can try out new recipes that will appeal to consumers in their local markets. Their network of factories includes 65 of them in 17 nations that are worked at by more than 20,000 employees.
In the middle of 2016, OSI Food Solutions took a controlling interest in Baho Food. This is a privately held Dutch firm that processes food for their customers in the restaurant and retail industries. They have food processing plants in both the Netherlands and Germany and the deal included all five of their subsidiaries which are Henri van de Bilt, Q Smart Life, Gelderland Frischwaren, Bakx Foods, and Vital Convenience.
The managing director of Baho Foods, John Balvers, stated that he, his management team, and all of the employees would remain once OSI Food Solutions took over control. He said that he was hard at work meeting the senior executives at OSI Food Solutions and was looking forward to a promising future with access to more markets.
Another way that this company recently expanded its operations was by buying a food processing plant that had been owned and operated by Tyson Foods for many years. This is a 200,000 square foot plant that is was purchased in order to meet growing demand in North America. The remaining Tyson Foods employees that were still at this plant were offered jobs after the acquisition by OSI Food Solutions, an offer that most of them seized upon.
