OSI Food Solutions has been trying as much as possible to take its food production business to different locations around the globe. In the past two years, it has become clear that the company is ready to do anything necessary to reach out to all consumers around the world.
So far, the company has established solid food production operations in 17 countries. It has built 65 food production plants in various parts of the world to facilitate the business, on top of employing over 20,000 people in different locations to deal with the production business. Now and then, the company is engaged in operations which boost further growth of the company.
Expansion in Spain
One of the recent measures to be taken by the company to facilitate its growth was the expansion of its processing facility in Spain. The plant processes pork, chicken and beef products. Over the past ten years, demand for chicken food products has increased products in Spain and surrounding countries such as Portugal and Germany. The high demand of was registered through consumer data that showed an increase from the annual growth rate of 6 percent to eighty percent, now. With such a significant change in consumer data, it was necessary for the company to come up with a plan to accommodate the change.
The senior management of OSI Food Solutions recommended expansion of the Toledo plant. As a result, the company added 22,600 square feet of space in the facility. Why was it added? The management wanted to increase the total production of chicken products by double. From 12,000 tons, the company is now doing 24,000 tons. Such a high production capacity puts the company in the right position to meet the demand that will be coming from the consumers in coming years.
The expansion of the food plant was praised by the Managing Director of OSI Food Solutions as one that would bring more benefits to consumers of the products made by this company. After the expansion, numerous measures have been placed to ensure that the product portfolio is improved. A product development manager has been hired to create products that will satisfy the palate of every consumer from this region. The expansion has also created more job opportunities for the local community. The number of workers in the plant has risen from 140 to 160. David McDonald, the COO of OSI Food Solutions has praised the expansion as one that has brought opportunities for the local community.
