OSI Group has announced the acquisition of Flagship Europe from the Flagship Food Group.

Flagship Europe is a highly regarded supplier to the UK foodservice market with an extensive range of quality, innovative products across a number of product categories. These include frozen poultry, sous vide products, and pies from award-winning manufacturer Oliver James, in addition to mayonnaise, sauces and dressings. Flagship Europe recently extended its presence in the Food To Go sector following the acquisition of Calder Foods, a highly respected supplier of sandwich fillings, marinades, sauces, mayonnaise and dips.  

“This is another exciting and progressive development for Flagship Europe,” said Flagship Europe Chief Executive, Russell Maddock, regarding the transaction. “The increased resources that will become available to us, along with the access to new clients and global markets as part of the OSI Group, will strengthen our position in the marketplace, improve our proposition, and open up new opportunities that will enable us to serve our customers better and support our already successful business."

“Adding Flagship to our OSI Europe business gives OSI a broader presence in Europe,” said David G. McDonald, President and Chief Operating Officer of OSI Group, LLC, based in Aurora, Illinois. “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.”
