OSI Group, LLC runs the OSI Food Solutions plant in Toledo, Spain. The plant in Spain was established as part of the company’s expansion plans in Europe. OSI Group has its main headquarters in Aurora, Illinois. It managed by CEO Sheldon Lavin and President David McDonald. These two people have been the reason why the company ranked among the biggest companies in the United States. OSI Group is in the top 100 largest private companies. In recent years, the company has paid a lot of concentration to its expansion plan. It is currently operating in 17 countries and has opened about 65 plants in different locations around the globe.
OSI Group has expanded the OSI Food Solutions Company in Spain. The company has added a new high-capacity production line that will double the production of chicken products. The company has invested 17 million euros which have gone to the creation of 22,600 square feet. With the new expansion, the company is expected to take its production of chicken products from 12,000 to 24,000 tons annually.
After the expansion, the total production of the plant will go up to 45,000 tons annually since there are other products which are produced in this plant. Pork and beef are some of the other products which are produced in this plant. The expansion is also good news to the local community as has resulted in the creation of more job opportunities. The workforce in the firm is expected to move from 140 to 160. One of the main opportunities created is that of the product development manager who will be in charge of new products in the newly created test kitchen.
The expansion of OSI Food Solutions has been necessitated by the increase in the consumption of chicken products in Spain and Portugal. In the last two years, there has been an increase of 8 percent in consumption compared to 6 percent in other years for the last one decade. This shows that demand for chicken products is going up. As part of the preparedness to this demand, the firm has decided to increase production of its chicken products. According to the managing director of OSI Food Solutions, they expect the demand to keep going up.
The recent increase is expected to make the dominance of the OSI Group in Europe to go up. The expansion of OSI Food Solutions comes on the backdrop of a series of new acquisitions in Europe. The food company has acquired Baho Foods and Flagship Europe.
