OSI bought Baho Food, which was a Dutch owned enterprise and has penetrated the European markets. Most of the financial information of the deal was not released to the public. The management of the OSI Group believes that the Baho Food will facilitate it to reach clients in Europe.
Baho Food’s market is large, and it sells its commodities in more than 18 European countries. It processes its products in five factories, which are Gelderland Frischwaren, Bakx Foods, Henri van de Bilt, Q Smart Life, and Vital Convenience.
