OSI Food Solutions has expanded its business operations. In recent years, the company has invested heavily in expansion programs that will enhance the growth of the company. The company has been acquiring some of the best food businesses in Europe to boost its services there. There have also been acquisitions of new facilities in the local market. The local market is also growing, and there has been pressure on the company to do more about this issue.
OS Food Solutions has also invested in expanding some of the existing food plants. In total, the company has 65 production plants all over the world. One plant that has been expanded is the Toledo food plant in Spain. After the expansion, the plant now occupies 22,600 square feet more. The expansion has been phenomenal, and the company is now in a capacity to produce more food products.
Production of food products is expected to increase significantly. Total food production annually will stand at 45,000 tons. The high capacity food production line that has been added to this plant will lead to doubling of chicken products. From 12,000 tons, the company will now be producing 24,000 tons. The increase will meet the high demand for chicken products that have been coming from this region.
The expansion of the OSI Food Solutions Toledo plant came from the increase in demand for chicken products. Consumer data from Portugal and Spain show that more people are now consuming chicken products. Demand in the past one decade has moved from 6-8 percent. Such a significant increase is indicative of further growth in the future. The company took this measure as one of the ways of ensuring that there is preparedness in case the demand keeps on going up.
After the expansion of the food plant. OSI Food Solutions will be taking the growth of the business further up and ensuring that the company remains the top producer of food products in the world.
OSI Food Solutions operates in 17 countries and has built 65 plants to facilitate the business of food production. The company is being led by Sheldon Lavin as the CEO and David McDonald as the COO. The two executives have been the main driving force behind the expansion of business in this company. It is their vision to see the company grow further and utilize production methods that protect the environment. In recent years, the company has adopted sustainability as a way of business expansion.
