OSI Food Solutions Meets Spanish And Portuguese Demand For Chicken

For the past decade OSI Food Solutions has seen a steadily increasing demand for chicken in Portugal and Spain. In order to meet this demand they recently spent €17 million upgrading their Toledo, Spain, food production plant. They can now process 24,000 tons of chicken a year while previously they could only process 12,000 tons. When adding in the beef and pork products they also process at this plant they are now able to supply 45,000 tons of processed meat in total.

The upgrade of this plant features a new production hall where they now have a high-capacity production line dedicated to chicken. They also added new refrigerated rooms and new rooms where they will be shipping and receiving products. There is a new employee socialization room as well in addition to other additions. They also upgraded the security system both within the plant and on the outside premises. OSI Food Production makes it one of their utmost priorities to deliver clean and safe food to their clients.

OSI Food Solutions has its main offices located outside Chicago, IL. They recently expanded their American operations in addition to their plant in Spain. They bought a food processing plant and store warehouse that was in the process of being shut down by Tyson Foods. This plant, located in the city of Chicago, was needed in order to meet increased demand for their processed food. The plant is 200,000 square feet and is close to another plant owned and operated by OSI Food Solutions. They didn’t disclose how much they bought this plant for but they did say that they offered jobs to almost all of the 250 employees still working there. OSI Food Solutions UK awarded 2016 Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council.

This company has also expanded their operations in Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom in the past two years. The first acquisition of 2016 was this company buying Baho Foods. Baho Foods is a Dutch company which has food production plants in both Germany and the Netherlands. The terms of this deal weren’t announced. The second acquisition of 2016 was of Flagship Europe. This firm was owned by another American food processing company who sold it to OSI Food Solutions. The terms of this deal also weren’t announced. Both of these acquisitions expanded OSI Food Solutions number of clients and also increased the number of brands and types of products they can provide to their customers throughout Europe.
