According to Turi Foods, this merger will enable the company to offer a full range of food solutions to the marketplace, complementing the strong OSI brand with the existing food brands of La Ionica, Bannockburn, Golden Farms and Colonial Farm.
"OSI and Turi Foods believe that a shared ownership will enable the organization, whose cultures are similar, to share their expertise to build a world-class food solutions group,” Sam Cuteri, chairman of Turi Foods, recently declared. "We look forward to bringing together the dedicated teams of both OSI and Turi."
Turi Foods and OSI will continue to operate their plants out of Thomastown and Geelong, Victoria, while further processed products will continue to be manufactured at Broadmeadows, Victoria; Eagle Farm, QLD; and Blacktown, NSW, along with their various farming operations in Victoria.
