OSI Food Solution is a food business that operates in Spain. The company has a food production plant in Toledo which deals with the production of chicken, pork and beef products. The Toledo plant has recently been expanded to meet the increasing demand for food products, especially chicken products. In the past one decade, the demand for chicken in Spain and Portugal has been going up significantly. There are expectations that the demand will keep going up. OSI Food Solutions decided to do expansion of their plant in anticipation of growth in coming days. The plant will now double its production of chicken products. From 12,000 tons, the production will go up to 24,000 tons. The expansion of Toledo plant has seen 22,600 square feet added to the plant.
Now there is more room for more production to take place. The working area has also been expanded to give room for workers to feel comfortable in their places of work. OSI Food Solutions has created new job opportunities for the local community. 20 more job vacancies have been created after the expansion. The workers in this food plant have grown from 140 to 160. The food products portfolio is also expected to go up in coming days. One of the positions that have been created is that of product development manager. The person designated this position will be responsible for the development of new food products.

There have been other initiatives which have been completed such as the acquisition of top food companies in Europe such as Baho Foods and Flagship Europe (now called Creative Foods).
