OSI Food Solutions is preparing for the future. Food growth is huge, especially in the meat market, and to match this, OSI has been bolstering production abilities for some time now. Across the board, OSI Food Solutions has been making gains. In Spain, the group recently increased factory production. In Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, OSI recently made some fantastic acquisitions that should dramatically improve their ability to maneuver in the ever-complex market.
OSIs Toledo, Spain, factory recently doubled its chicken production ability. The Toledo factory is massive. Two years ago it was producing a solid 12,000 tons (yes tons) of chicken product per year. That’s a lot of chicken. Now, the company is producing 24,000 tons of chicken every single year. The upgrade wasn’t only chicken; it included beef and pork upgrades. The factory now produces 45,000 tons of all of the products combined. The upgrade saw 20 new jobs open up. The upgrades came as a response to Spains rapidly growing chicken consumption, up 6% a year at this point.
In the Netherlands, OSI Food Solutions recently swallowed Baho Foods, a major producer of deli meats and convenience snacks. This gives them an increased portfolio and a major foothold in the Netherlands. The Netherlands can be a very difficult market to exist in, much less start anew. This purchase will help OSI bypass many of the local ordinances and language barriers that conventional market penetration would create. On the other hand, in Germany, OSI acquired Hynek, a meat processor in Germany. Hynek has important local ties to butchers and meat processors making it a fantastic purchase for OSI.
In the United Kingdom, a similar trend followed. OSI swallowed Flagship Europe, a company known for pies, poultry, sandwich fillings, and sauces. This acquisition serves to massively increase OSIs already overflowing portfolio of products to offer customers.
OSI Food Solutions is showing the world exactly how to grow a business in the food industry. Important acquisitions play a key role in increasing presence and networking capabilities in countries around the world. On the other hand, increasing factory production helps OSI keep up with growing consumer demands across the world. This plays an important role in OSIs ability to adapt and maintain its presence in the world food market.
