OSI Food Solutions is one of the subsidiaries of the OSI Group, the largest meat processing corporation in the world today. The OSI Food Solutions is operating in Spain, and they recently unveiled their newest high-capacity production line that was built in the city of Toledo, Spain. The facility sits on an area that occupies more than 20,000 square feet of floor size. The high-capacity production line is also known for its capacity to process more than 24,000 tons of chicken meat per year. Before the creation of the facility in Toledo, OSI Food Solutions is only able to process 12,000 tons of chicken meat per year. Additionally, the OSI Food Solutions stated that their newest facility could also handle more than 40,000 tons of livestock meat, and that includes pork, beef, veal, and so much more.
The director at the OSI Food Solutions explained that the people of Spain and Portugal have an increasing demand for chicken meat. Based on recent studies, the Spanish and the Portuguese people have increased their consumption of chicken from 6% to 8%, and it is projected to increase further in the years to come. To prepare for the growing demand on chicken meat, the OSI Food Solutions proposed the creation of a high-capacity production line that was approved by the board of directors back at the OSI Group headquarters in the United States.
The local population of Toledo is benefiting from the facility because it gave 20 locals a job. Presently, 140 employees are working at the OSI Food Solutions facility in Toledo, and this number is expected to increase as more people will be hired once they decided to increase production.
The facility in Toledo, Spain is one of the facilities owned by the OSI Group. They have more than 50 facilities operating today, and each facility produces a product that is in demand, especially within the locals’ preference. According to David McDonald, the creation of overseas production line is one of the goals of the OSI Group. He wanted to dominate the industry, and one of the easiest ways to introduce the product to the population is to manufacture it near their homes. They have taken this strategy in Spain, where the OSI Group founded the OSI Food Solutions and recruited the locals to work for the company. Today, the site in Spain is one of the most productive facilities that the company built.

The company specializes in meat products, poultry products, sausages, other pork products as well as things like bacon and hot dogs. The company has worked hard to become a global leader in these value-added meat and poultry products and continues to expand its reach across the world. OSIS Industries employs more than 20,000 and is proud to not only have brought tens of thousands of jobs (mainly manufacturing positions) into America, but to put pride into being a wonderful place to work.
OSI Group is working in 17 countries throughout the world and continues to expand. Within those 17 countries, OSI has 65 operations throughout the globe. The company has been honored as a top privately-held company and one of the largest producers of meat and poultry in America and in North America.
OSI Industries isn’t just expanding on a global level. One of the company’s main focuses is to always be expanding its footprint in the United States and throughout North America. The company made a massive step forward when it purchased a Tyson Food plant that was slated to be shut down last November. Tyson could not justify keeping the plant in Chicago open. The plant is located on Chicago’s South Side, and employs over two thousand people. The majority of those people would have lost their jobs, many of which have been employed by Tyson for over a decade and have excelled at mastering the work that the company required. However, OSI Group saw it as an ideal opportunity to expand its foothold in the United States, especially in the North East region. The plant was purchased by OSI for $7.4 million and the majority of the employees of the former Tyson Food plant were able to keep their jobs, making it a win-win for all parties involved.
OSI has also earned the prestigious title of being recognized as one of the top companies in the United States that is privately owned, as well as one of the top companies in the industry of food production. OSI has been able to excel thanks to its commitment to always providing the highest quality of protein (meat, chicken, sausage, pork, etc.) in the entire industry, as well as bringing in thousands of jobs, mainly in the manufacturing sector, to the United States.
