OSI Industries proudly announced in 2016 that the company had acquired Flagship Europe, a highly successful UK based food service company that carries a wide range of high quality and creative products that range from pies, frozen poultry products, sauces, dressings and other items. The addition of Flagship gives OSI a much broader market share in Europe according to the OSI Industries President David McDonald. The company has been rebranded as Creative Foods Europe. OSI executives felt that the new name was a better reflection of the identity that the company wants to portray with Flagship. A restructuring of the Flagship sales team will coincide with the name change. This is as always with OSI, in the name of better meeting the demands of the company’s customers.
The same year as the Flagship acquisition was announced, OSI Industries has also added the Dutch speciality food provider Baho Food. This transaction has a similar effect on OSI’s European expansion as the Flagship Europe acquisition has had.
