OSI Food Solutions has an ambitious goal. Not only does the Ohio based meat packaging company want to be the biggest food company in the world (which isn’t a long shot as they are already on the Top 100 Food Companies list) they want to be the best-equipped food company in the world. What does it mean to be the best-equipped food company in the world? OSI Food Solutions has been revamping factories and adding some key features that are separating them from the competition.
When discussing factory upgrades, the first thing that comes to mind is production. Increasing production is always on the minds of large businesses, and OSI is no exception. In Toledo, Spain, OSI recently increased production by magnitudes. OSI’s Toledo factory already produced a staggering amount of chicken. At a rate of about 12,000 tons of chicken produced annually the factory was already a relative monster of chicken production. That wasn’t good enough for OSI. After recent upgrades, the capacity of the factory was doubled. The Toledo factory now produces a whopping — wait for it — 24,000 tons of chicken annually. Now that’s a production upgrade.
OSI Food Solutions wasn’t done at simply increasing production. The Toledo factory now has some state-of-the-art facilities as well. The upgrade saw employees get a massive new lounge area for downtime as well as some shiny new amenities to go along with it. The factory also added a new production kitchen for product creation and testing. This became a necessity as the OSI is growing so rapidly. The production also wasn’t limited to just chicken, the factory also increased the production of beef and pork products as well.
On domestic turf, OSI Food Solutions recently acquired a failing Tyson chicken plant in Chicago for $7.4 million. OSI, of course, saw the factory as a diamond in the rough. After a few months of labor, OSI added pork and beef products to the factories production capabilities. That’s not all. OSI also created another state-of-the-art employee lounge area and production kitchen here as well.
OSI Industries doesn’t play games when it comes to factory production. They are ramping up efforts worldwide to meet the growing meat demand. Not only that, they are making factories safer, more accessible, and more comfortable to employees. OSI is showing the world what it means to equip factories in the meat processing industry.
