The global leader in the production and distribution of healthy, quality meats, OSI Food Solutions, just made a major announcement. The company has made multiple major acquisitions already this year in both Europe and North American markets. Yet, one of the most major announcements comes from its facilities in Spain. The Spain facilities of OSI Food Solutions just announced that it has widened its capacities and will now be able to produce double the amount of chicken annually than it has ever before.
The facilities in Spain have added what is referred to as a high-capacity production line. This high-capacity production line gives the employees the ability to produce twice as much chicken within a similar time frame. The cost to install one of these is 17 million euros. However, OSI Food Solutions believes that the cost of investing 17 million euros will be regrouped with the higher level of production of chicken. Last year, with the past production line, the facility was able to produce around 12,000 tons of chicken products. With the new high-capacity production line, the Spain OSI Food Solutions will be able to produce 24,000 tons of chicken. That volume of chicken will then be distributed to thousands of distributors, retailers and restaurants throughout Europe.
In addition to the ability to produce twice as much chicken as previous years, the new high-capacity production line is creating more jobs in the area. The plant is located in Toledo, Spain and the area will soon have several hundred new jobs available. This is essential as high-quality jobs are often difficult to find in the area. One of those jobs will be a managerial position, which will be a wonderful opportunity for someone to have a high-paying job while overseeing the production of chicken.
The demand for chicken products has been increasing throughout Spain and throughout Portugal. In the past three years there has been about an eight percent increase in the demand, and that number is only expected to rise throughout the next several years. With the addition of the high-capacity production line and the addition of over twenty thousand square feet of space, OSI Food Solutions will be in a prime position to be ahead of market demand, thus reaping the profits. In fact, OSI has even added a state-of-the-art testing and cooking kitchen to try out potential new products that may be in demand in future years.
