OSI Food Solutions has a production plant in Spain. The plant is mainly used for the production of meat products that are primarily supplied to Spain and Portugal. The main products from this plant include beef, pork, and chicken. In recent times, the food company has been taking its expansion operations to another level with a lot of attention going to expanding operations outside the United States. It is in the aim of increasing production activity that this company has come up with a plan that will see the production of chicken products double. The company has added a new production line that has the capacity to produce 24,000 tons of chicken products every year. Before the expansion, it could only produce 12,000 tons of products.
After the expansion, OSI Food Solutions is now in a position to produce over 45,000 tons of meat products from this plant. There is good news to the local community-based in Toledo, Spain as 20 new job opportunities have been created in this company. The new increase has pushed the number of employees in the plant to 160. Among the new positions is that of the product development manager. This position is mandated with the role of improving the products portfolio of the company.
According to the managing director of OSI Food Solutions in this region, the expansion was necessitated by an increase in demand for chicken products. In the past one decade, there has been a consistent increase by six percent every year. In the past three years, there has been a significant shift with demand rising to eight percent. The increase has pushed the company to improve its production capacity to meet the needs of the market. The company expects the trend to maintain in coming years, a factor that will push the company to produce more.
The expansion of the company includes additional 22,600 square feet. The expansion consists of a product development kitchen that will be used to test new products as well as testing the needs of the customers. After the increase, almost every part of the plant has recorded some improvement. OSI Food Solutions is ready to change the food production industry as indicated by its recent moves.
