OSI Food Solutions is a world leader the food industry that provides its many customers with customized food solutions. Recently, the company has expanded upon its chicken production capacity by growing its plant in Toledo, Spain. Now, OSI is able to produce 24,000 tons of chicken products where before it could produce half as much at the facility in Spain. This also means that its total production capacity for all meat-related products in the region has grown to 45,000 tons. The expansion costed the company close $20 million USD and is adding 20 new jobs to the region along with the extra chicken production abilities.
The reason why OSI Food Solutions decided to expand upon its Toledo, Spain operations is because there has been an ever-increasing demand for chicken products in, both, Portugal and Spain. It is also expected that this demand will continue to rise over the next years, and the new 22,600 square-foot addition will help with that demand. David McDonald, President and Chief Operating Officer of OSI, commented that the expansion will allow the company to add new products to its offerings. He also revealed that it will help the company to pick up new clients as well as make their longest-running customers happy.
Along with the expansion, new measures were taken to ensure the safety freshness of food that OSI Food Solutions offers its customers. Indoor cameras, a new surveillance system, and a modern firefighting system were installed, and the company has been proud to announce that it was able to cut its use of electricity by 20%. This goes along with the company’s desire to continue to be a sustainable company that supports the environment at-large as well as the local environment of the communities it works in.
In 2016, OSI Food Solutions was given the Globe of Honour Award by the British Safety Council. The award was given to the company due to its excellent environmental management, and this means that it also received five stars from the British Safety Council in regard to how much attention it has paid to environmental concerns.

It also means that their operations are sustainable, and this is exactly what OSI Food Solutions has achieved with the help of its leadership and many happy employees.
