OSI food solutions acquired Baho Foods to broaden their presence in Europe. Baho Foods manufactures meat products including chicken, beef, sausages and other products of pork in the Netherlands. This move was a great benefit to OSI since Baho Foods has five Brands in the market, diversifying the products to fit their consumers’ needs.
OSI Food Solutions recently increased their food production capacity to double at its already existing Toledo Operation in Spain. This investment’s cost was about €17 million, increasing processed products of chicken to 24,000 tons from 12,000 tons every year. This expansion has improved OSI’s total capacity of production to over 45,000 tons of quality pork, chicken and beef products.
The entire project would add 20 more jobs to the already existing and occupied 140 positions, including the newly created job position of the development manager of products. This position’s holder would be responsible for ensuring there is dedicated and skilled leadership for both the new developments in products and the existing products’ developments.
OSI’s Spain Managing Director José María del Río said that the expansion was a solution to the increasing chicken products demand in both Portugal and Spain. There has been a 6% average increase in demand in the last ten years and an 8% average increase in the past three years. The company is anticipating continuously increased demand, but with this project, they are ready.
The addition of buildings included a new hall for production, areas for receiving and shipping products, a storage facility of supplies, nitrogen, and hot water tanks, employees’ social area and storage rooms of waste containers that are refrigerated. It also included a kitchen for the development of products to offer the best services to their consumers and client’s needs. The COO and President of OSI, David McDonald addressing the achievement said that they were excited that they were creating opportunities for jobs and adding capacity.
