In August of 2016, OSI Group, LLC acquired Dutch food manufacture Baho Food. Baho Foods manufactures convenience foods, deli meats and snacks, which are served in eighteen European countries. David McDonald, president and chief operating officer of OSI Group says, “Adding Baho Food to our OSI Europe business gives OSI a broader presence in Europe.” OSI is based in Aurora, Illinois, so this will expand their business internationally into a new and open territory with a range of available food markets. The foods and services Baho offers add to the sufficient strengths OSI already has, not only expanding the business but also improving the customer’s needs.

Baho is the parent of five subsidiaries with plants in Germany and the Netherlands. The five companies are Gelderland Frischwaren, Vital Convenience, Henri van de Bilt, Bakx Foods and Q Smart Life. These firms have a history of almost 60 years. Baho Food’s managing director, John Balvers, is excited to join OSI Group and will remain apart of the company and work with David McDonald and the rest of the executives at OSI. Balvers says he is excited because of the outstanding relationships OSI has with both its customers and suppliers. He also believes they will be able to support the customer’s needs with the combination of both their strengths.
OSI Group is continually growing and looks to keep up the effort to expand and adapt to the ever-growing market of food processors and manufacturers. Previous of the acquirement of Baho foods, the company also showed growth with the purchasing of a former Tyson Foods plant in Chicago in June of 2016. They have 65 facilities and have an excess of 20,000 employees in 17 countries. Along with their European and American headquarters, they are located in Canada, Brazil, and across the continent of Asia.

Bob Reina is one of those individuals that are truly ahead of their time in every sense. He knows what people need, what they want, and how to give it to them. He has done that as both a police officer and also through his work as the CEO and founder of Talk Fusion. He started the company back in 2007 to connect people with one another and for them to have their dreams come true. He wanted people to take back control of their lives and feel like they had a say in what was happening around them and what was happening to them. They didn’t have to feel like they were just an observer in their life. They were in control for once.
They were in control because they had products like video newsletters and video conferences to reach people. They finally felt confident and felt sure about themselves. It was something they had not felt in maybe their entire lives. In life, people like to tell others what they can and can’t do. I don’t know why. Maybe it makes them feel better about themselves. Bob Reina is the opposite. He wants people to know they can do anything and they have a lot of untapped potential inside of themselves. There is not a single thing they can’t do if they want it bad enough.
At the end of the day, that is what life boils down to: how bad do you want it? How bad do you need it? For a lot of people, it has reached the point where they simply can’t take another single day at their job. They are sick of their boss and they are sick of feeling like they are not being allowed to tap into their creativity. With Talk Fusion, they call the shots and they are in charge for once.
Bob Reina is also the person that made a one million dollar donation to the Tampa Bay Humane Society. He is also the person that pays for vet bills on animals that are in need. He is doing all he can and it is what he lives for in his life. Learn more: https://www.crunchbase.com/person/bob-reina#/entity
