OSI food solutions recently began to double its chicken production in Toledo, Spain. The production grew from 12,000 tons of chicken to a capacity of 24,000 tons of chicken. The investment was worth seven million euro. The company now produces a total of 45 tons of chicken, beef products and pork. The acquisition has created employment opportunity for the people living near the facilities. The Toledo, Spain food processing industry was launched in 1990. The managing director of the Spain plant José Maria Del Rio felt the need to have more chicken production as the people in the area had increased the chicken products consumption.
In seeking to grow its business, the OSI group purchased the Tyson food plant at 7.4 million dollars. The Tyson food prepared meals for the hospitality industry, and other clients from different sectors. When OSI bought the Tyson foods, it helped employees who worked with the company who would have lost their jobs if the company was shut down. They also purchased the baho foods that deal with poultry and meat. David McDonald, the company’s COO, said it was an excellent opportunity for the company to grow its market in Europe. OSI group acquired flagship Europe from the flagship group company that deals with the supply of frozen poultry and pies. The acquisition of flagship will give the OSI Company a broader presence in Europe.
