OSI Food Solutions Spearheads Efforts to Increase Global Food Supply

It is scary but true. The world population has increased to 400% in just the last hundred years. Feeding that many people may pose serious challenges for today and the future. Without prompt and careful action now, millions may face starvation and famine.

This exponential population growth has world leaders, food suppliers and farmers struggling to develop better ways to increase agricultural production. OSI Food Solutions, one of America’s top 100 food companies, is leading the charge with efforts to increase poultry production.

 Consolidation for Increased Productivity

OSI Food Solutions increased production efficiency and development efforts in Spain and other facilities across the globe led to double production totals. This happened due to a combination of dedicated investment in plant facilities, investing in new facilities and putting systems in place to increase efficiency.

Expanded facilities, due to the purchase of the Dutch food company Baho Foods and the Tyson Foods plant in Chicago, opened up new opportunities for increased productivity.

 Efficiency and Sustainability

More than a fad buzzword, sustainability an integral component of OSI and their drive to battle future famines. Creating sustainable, highly efficient methods to produce and distribute food is vital for solving the problem. OSI Food Solutions continually strives to improve both sustainability and efficiency with improved technology and eco-sensitive operations throughout the company.

This commitment to producing healthy foods in a sustainable and safe manner is supported by serious research and development. Arguably the industry leader for innovation and sustainability, OSI Food Solutions spurs innovation to meet tomorrow’s challenges. The company supports a robust program of studies to meet future food supply challenges at three Culinary Innovation Centers devoted to research and development.

Meeting the future head-on will take the efforts of many companies and individuals. There is no new land to farm or ranch on. The key to success is making the facilities already employed more efficient in the most responsible manner possible. The challenge is great, and OSI Food Solutions stands ready to meet it.

OSI Food Solutions Increase Meat Production For Business Growth

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.
