OSI Food Solutions has also added another production line in Toledo, Spain. The €17 million investment effectively doubled the production of chicken to 24,000 tons yearly. This expansion has enabled the Toledo operation to produce over 45,000 tons of high quality chicken, beef and pork products. This expansion has also increased the workforce to 140 people. The expansion was the company’s response to the increasing demand for chicken products throughout Portugal and Spain. The annual growth reached six percent during the last ten years and has increased to eight percent during the last three.

The expansion is enabling OSI Food Solutions to grow key accounts in both retail and foodservice while supporting their customers. New security and firefighting systems were also included in the expansion. The company has increased sustainability with reductions to electricity usage.
