With an increase in demand by Spain and Portugal, OSI Food Solutions has bought a meat facility in Spain. Before the Purchase of the facility in Spain, OSI Food Solutions was producing an average of twelve thousand to twenty-four thousand tons of meat per year, which didn’t cover the increase in demand made by clients in Portugal and Spain. After the purchase of the facility in Spain, OSI Food Solutions will have an annual production of forty-five tons of meat annually.
Furthermore, Tyson announced that they were going to close down a facility in Chicago, which would lay off more than four hundred and twenty workers due to a lack of efficiency. Due to this news, OSI Food Solutions saw this as a method of improving their chicken production in the United States, due to an increase in demand for chicken by rising retail food stores. The Tyson family was bought for seven million dollars. Not only will this benefit OSI Food Solutions for chicken production, but also future clients who continue to demand mega from OSI, leading to business growth and demand for more meat distribution. This has been seen as OSI has recorded an increase of six to eight percent demand rate in over three years. In addition, unlike previous facilities by OSI, Tyson has surveillance technology equipped, and a ready to go quick-fire response system, which reduces hazardous conditions in the workplace for employees within the 20,000-acre facility.
OSI Food Solution was founded by German immigrant Otto Kolschowski in 1909. Before becoming a privately owned worldwide distributor, OSI was a meat market that supplied fast-food chain McDonald’s. Now for decades has been a lead distributor, and developer of foods for food stores, and food chains. Due to the Success of OSI, and the increasing number of the happy client, OSI currently operate over sixty-five facilities worldwide. Currently, OSI manages over twenty thousand employees at these facilities.
