Recently, OSI Food Solutions announced that their location in Toledo, Spain had added a new, high-capacity production line to their operation. This change has increased production from 12,000 tons to 24,000 tons of processed chicken products made annually. Chicken consumption has been growing in Spain and Portugal at about approximately 6% each year, so changes were made to anticipate the necessity for said product. The expansion cost €17 million and was completed earlier in the year. Now the Toledo, Spain branch is able to process over 45,000 tons of chicken, beef and pork products every year. The added load has also increased the number of workers from 140 to 160. The new, high-capacity production line was built within 600 square-food building. This building also houses a production hall, facility storage, refrigerated rooms, water and nitrogen tanks, and shipping areas.
OSI Food Solutions’ international success has allowed them to expand further and help more people than their creators ever thought was possible. In the past few years, the corporation was able to purchase other well-known and influential food-service companies such as Baho Food, Tyson Food Plant, and Flagship Europe. Their consistently high quality assurance and customer service has been noted by the British Safety Council, who awarded OSI Food Solutions UK with a Globe of Honour Award in 2016. This award was specifically given for the corporation’s outstanding management of food safety and environmental risks. There are only 18 organizations who received a Globe of Honour in 2016.
