Corporate giant OSI Group has recently acquired Rose Pacing Co. Inc. This union combines OSI, a premier food provider and long time partner of McDonald’s restaurants, and the United States’ primary producer of retail pork products.
Rose Packing is a family owned leader in the meat industry. Like OSI, they have deep roots in Chicago, with headquarters in Barrington, Illinois.
The deal gives OSI Group all of Rose’s operations including all of its packing assets. Leaders of OSI are intrigued by the possibilities that this acquisition affords them. Kevin Scott, senior executive vice-president of OSI Group, believes that the companies shared value system will work well together to provide an excellent product and unmatched service to their customers. Additionally, the acquisition will aid in their growth by giving them more processing capabilities and an established presence in key areas of the food production industry.
The Rose side is also enthusiastic about the acquisition. Dwight Stiehl, chief executive officer of Rose Packing will stay on and work with OSI Group during the transition. He has stated that the two companies combined 200 years of experience, and their commitment to its customers will allow the entity to thrive in the United States.
This acquisition is another example of OSI’s efforts to remain on the cutting edge of the food industry under their leader, Sheldon Lavin. They understand that to provide the world with adequate sustenance they must remain vigilant and focus on sustainability.
OSI Group has committed themselves to remaining on the top of the food production industry. Moves like the Rose Acquisition show that they are not resting on their laurels and are always looking for ways to remain dynamic and relevant. This move is a vital piece of their growth strategy that gives them the history and resources of a quality company.
