OSI Food Solutions has in recent years been expanding its operations in various parts of the globe. One of the areas that they have expanded is in the production capacity. The company has been increasing its production capacity so that they can meet the high demand of foods coming from the local and international markets. In line with the high demand, the company has taken measures that will facilitate the development of the company such that it can meet the increasing demand for food products. One of the plants that have been expanded as part of the expansion program is the Toledo Plant in Spain.
The main reason that the Toledo plant has been expanded is so that the company can increase its production of chicken products. There has been high demand for chicken products in Portugal and Spain, and the company has been forced to take a step that will ensure that, as demand increases, supply also increases. The decision to expand this company was made based on statistics on food consumption in the two countries. In the past one decade, the consumption of food products has been going up consistently. In the last three years, it has even shot up, even more, indicating that chicken products will be in high demand in future.
In the expansion, OSI Food Solutions has increased the production of chicken products by double. Previously they were producing 12,000 tons in a year, but now they will be producing 24,000 times in a year. The expansion will also raise total production in the plant to over 45,000 tons every year. The plant also produces beef and pork products.
OSI Food Solutions has also created employment opportunities in the plant, the number of people who work for the company in the Toledo Plant has increased to 160 from the previous 140. One of the key positions which have been created in the company is that of the product development manager who will be responsible for people development of new food product in the plant. With this expansion, OSI food Solutions is now ready to handle the anticipated demand for chicken products.
