OSI Food Solutions is a company dealing with processed quality beef, chicken, and pork products. The predecessor of Otto and Sons started in Toledo, Spain in the year 1990. Today, the company has more than 17 facilities in various countries. Early this year, the firm completed first phase of extension. Initially, in the ‘90s, the firm could serve only Illinois as a local company, but now it is an international food company. Still, the company is a work in progress to improve on the customer networking and services. In March 2018, OSI Group increased the productions of quality chicken by a double from 12,000 to 24,000 tons per year. Similarly, the total output of quality beef, pork, and chicken products raised to 45,000 tons per year. The expansion led to the contribution to the community by offering an increase in job opportunities by 20 positions on the current 140 workers.
The extension of the production at OSI Food Solutions was to respond to the rising demand for quality chicken in Portugal and Spain. According to the research conducted recently, it is clear that the market will continue to go even higher. OSI Group is preparing to enhance their services to remain relevant as the leading food company globally. Thus, in the additional 20 positions, we have the development product manager, who should run the current products and introduces new products in the company’s portfolio. OSI President David McDonald was happy to be able to embrace such an improvement to cater for the future of the company.
The company also expanded its physical location by 22,600 square feet. Other facilities include shipping and receiving area, refrigerated rooms for waste container storage, supply storage, hot water and nitrogen tanks, and social space for employees. OSI Food Solutions has come up with new, modernized kitchens, where we do product test by our well-skilled and qualified staff of chefs. Also, the firm improved the surveillance system by introducing indoor and outdoor cameras.
In the year 2016, OSI Food Solutions acquired the Tyson Food Plant. The purchase of the plant showed the willingness to increase the company’s services to North America. In California, OSI Group opened a processing industry for rice, tofu, and beans. In the U.K., the group purchased Flagship Europe and made it the primary distributor of processed food. The plant got renamed as the Creative Foods Europe. Also, the company acquired the leading position of Baho in the Netherlands.
