In a recent move to expand their services in Spain, OSI Food Solutions announced that they were doubling their existing production line in their processing plant located in Toledo that was set up in 1990. The company recently made an investment of €17 million for OSI Food Solutions Spain that would allow them to increase their production of processed chicken, beef and pork to 45,000 tons from the earlier 12,000 tons in a year. The decision was taken after the growing demand for chicken products from retailers in Spain and Portugal. According to experts, the demand will increase further and OSI Food Solutions wanted to be prepared for it. The adding of production lines has led the company to add more jobs in their companies. In 2016, OSI Food Solutions Spain was recognized by the Local Chamber of Commerce for their long-term commitment to providing employment to the locals.
The expansion of their existing facility led the OSI Food Solutions to add an entirely new production hall, shipping and receiving hall, increased space for storage and more refrigerated rooms. The company has also added numerous oil, hot water, and nitrogen tanks on their facility for their machines. With the increased workforce, the company also added a large social area for its employees. The security of the facility has also been increased by installing the latest surveillance system in every corner of their premises. In addition to adding new machines and equipment, the company has also focused on making the facility energy efficient to help save energy. The company also holds SA 8000:2014 accreditation for being dedicated to completing social responsibility.
According to the OSI President, David McDonald, the expansion strategy of OSI Food Solutions will help the company to add new products to their offerings and also grow their portfolio to support their relationships with their customers.
