The OSI Group has agreed to purchase Flagship Europe from the Flagship Group for an undisclosed amount of cash. A subsidiary of the Flagship Food Group, Flagship Europe services Europe as the leading provider of frozen poultry, salad dressings, pastries and sous-vide products.

Aurora, Illinois-based OSI Group continues its aggressive global expansion with the Flagship Europe acquisition. It has production and processing plants in North and South America, Asia and Europe. A spokesperson for OSI Group commenting, “the Flagship Europe acquisition brings together two businesses that share the same vision of developing, sourcing, manufacturing and distributing a diverse range of high quality food products to their customers.”

Flagship Europe expanded its European and Asian presence, over the years, with its acquisition of Calder Foods, a leading processor of dips, sandwich fillings, mayonnaise, marinades, and sauces. In addition to Calder Foods, Oliver James pastry pies are processed and distributed by Flagship Europe too.

Russell Maddock, Flagship Europe CEO commenting on the OSI acquisition, “The new resources that will be available to Flagship Europe, in addition to gaining access to new prospects and worldwide markets as part of the OSI Group, will strengthen Flagship Europe’s standing in the marketplace, improve its proposition, and generate unlimited opportunities that will enable it to serve its clients better and support its successful business.”

Not satisfied with the Flagship Europe acquisition, the OSI Group announced the purchase of Netherlands processed food manufacturer and distributor Baho Food. Subject to European regulatory authority approval, the merger adds a stellar lineup of highly desirable delicatessen meats and snack convenience foods to OSI Group’s lineup of meats and other processed foods. The merger strengthens OSI Group’s position as the leader in processed foods in Europe and Asia.
