With the new focus of the O.S.I Group, it began to expand its European Market and decided to purchase Baho Foods. This is a Dutch food processing company that deals with deli meats and snacks. The acquisition is aimed at improving the company’s position in the European market. Dr. David Mcdonald said that one of the main reasons was because Baho’s company menu complemented their own thus it was a strategic move.
