Baho Foods, a Dutch company that manufacturer’s convenience foods, has now been purchased by OSI Food Solutions. Baho Foods has been focused on providing snack foods and deli meats since their inception. Although the company was pleased with their anticipated acquisition, they were not ready to disclose the financial terms of the transaction at this time. One of the reason OSI Food Solutions was anxious to make the acquisition was to add to their portfolio for the European market.
The President and COO of OSI Food Solutions, David G. McDonald, recently stated in an article that, “The company’s portfolio of products and brands complements OSI’s current processing strengths while broadening our capabilities to best serve the evolving needs of our customers.” Recognizing the needs is what makes McDonald a highly regarded leader within the company.
A secondary reason for success in the purchase of Baho Foods was the additional processing plants that they had located throughout Europe. The plants are currently located in Germany and the Netherlands, namely they are subsidiaries all under various names within the company. Big names in Europe like Gelderland Frischwaren, Vital Convenience, Bakx Foods, and others are all now under the OSI Food Solutions umbrella, and are serving more than 18 European countries.
John Balvers, the Managing Director for Baho Foods is also excited about the acquisition and coming transition for the company. Balvers has expressed excitement about becoming part of the OSI Group and moving forward to combine the company into a better way to serve Europe. Balvers focus is now in aiding the direction of the company and their new growth plans. This is because he believes that both companies will realize their goals to a higher degree as they continue to find ways to make changes and work together.
OSI Food Solutions has always played an active role in the food service industry and continues to do so as they finalize the details of their acquisition of Baho Foods.
