OSI Food Solutions is a company that is pushing for food production capacity in the world to be improved. The company which has a plant in Toledo, Spain has increased its chicken production capacity as a way of countering the high demand of chicken products that has been witnessed in the past few years. From statistics, the demand has been going up and up every year, placing the company in a position where it might be overwhelmed by the high demand. The company has however moved with speed to stop the matter before it gets any worse. It has expanded the plant in such a way that it is now producing double the amount it has been producing. From 12,000 tons of chicken products, the company is now producing 24,000 tons. There will also be an increase in the total production from the plant.
The OSI Food Solutions plant has increased its floor space by 22,600 square feet. This space will provide more space for operations within the facility. There will be more working space which will reduce congestion. The facility has also been built with a special test kitchen which will be used to create new products depending on the taste and preferences of the people
OSI Food Solutions has built this facility because they want them products to spread to a global audience. This is not the only project that they have executed in recent years especially in Europe. They are on a plan of being the biggest food production company in Europe they have acquired Baho Foods and Flagship Europe as they try to take over control of the food business.
OSI Food Solutions has made sure that they incorporate the latest technology in the new facility. The facility has been installed with state-of-the-art equipment which will improve efficiency in the facility. There are security cameras and fire suppression system which have been incorporated. The facility has also been built in such a way that it is going to lower the energy consumed by 20 percent.
According to David McDonald, the president of OSI Group, LLC, the move taken by the company will increase food security in the region as well as creating job opportunities.
