OSI Food Solutions expands Toledo food plant


OSI Food Solutions has increased the production of chicken products in its Spain plant. The plant is located in Toledo and was established as part of the OSI Group’s expansion plan in Europe. The new production line added in this plant is meant to double production of chicken products. It will increase from 12,000 to 24,000 tons annually. The company is responding to an anticipated increase in demand for chicken products. In the near future, food production in the company will go up in total as more people embrace consumption of food products.

Chicken consumption in Portugal and Spin has been going up in the last one decade. In recent years, the rate of growth is even more. This trend is expected to maintain, and therefore the company is already preparing for the growth by increasing its production capacity. The growth in the last two years has been 8 percent compared to 6 percent in the previous years.

The recent increase by OSI Food Solutions has seen 22,600 square feet added to the plant. There has been an increase in almost every part of the plant from storage to service delivery. The growth will create room for the anticipated growth. The firm has even created a new test kitchen which will be used to test new products which are being created depending on the changing taste and preferences of the people. OSI food Solutions is committed to delivering healthy, affordable and competitive foods to the consumers.

OSI Food Solutions is involved in the production of other food products such as beef and pork, with the increase of its chicken production, the plant is expected to have 45,000 tons of food produced annually. With the new product, there is an increase in other areas such as the number of job opportunities available. In the new set-up, the plant has created 20 more opportunities including one for the product development manager who will be responsible for the development of new food products.

OSI Group has been taking its expansion plan global. However, in the expansion plans, it has also factored in local growth. Recently, OSI Group acquired one large food processing plant located in Chicago that was previously owned by Tyson Foods. The new plant is expected to take production in the local market even higher. With OSI Group ranked as one of the biggest private companies in the United States, the recent expansion is likely to see it climb up the positions.
