While OSI Food Solutions has always been a top name in the industry of high-quality meat production and distribution, the company is now poised to become the number one provider of meat globally. The company was built around the idea that consistent growth should be a key focus of its business development strategy. The company frequently purchases other companies that produce meat, or the company buys majority stake in those companies. Basically, OSI Food Solutions has an umbrella of additional businesses underneath it, many of which they choose to keep the name of the company, as it is a household name.
Speaking of household names, OSI Food Solutions just announced that it has purchased a major chicken development facility formerly owned by Tyson Food Group. Tyson has been a household name in the United States for decades and is synonymous with chicken throughout the country. It is the leading provider of chicken products throughout the United States. The facility, which is located on the Southside of Chicago, was purchased by OSI for $7.4 million. The facility is two hundred thousand square feet large and employs several hundred people.
Tyson Food Group made an announcement in 2017 that they would have to close the Chicago plant. They could no longer justify keeping the plant open with the current volume of chicken being produced. There were over four hundred employees working at the plant when that announcement was made. That would leave those four hundred people unemployed in an area of Chicago where jobs are already hard to find. OSI Food Solutions bought the facility, and the majority of those people will now be keeping their jobs, which is incredibly fortunate. This purchase is a big part of OSI Food Group’s plan to grow its footprint in the United States. The company is a household name in the Europe and already has a huge presence in the United States. However, OSI Food Solutions is always focused on growth, and seeks to increase presence in North America.
OSI Food Solutions also made another recent announcement on its European front. Its facility in Toledo, Spain just added a high-capacity production line and expanded its facility by over twenty thousand square feet. The addition of this high-capacity production line will now give the company the ability to produce twice as much chicken products as it could previously. The volume of chicken products has grown from 12,000 tons annually to 24,000 tons.
