OSI Group: The expansion of the Spanish Market with OSI leading the charge

OSI Group has expanded rapidly over the years and data coming from OSI’s Spain division that the demand for chicken is growing is a clear indication that their calculations where correct. According to OSI, the Spanish division could only produce about 12,000 tons of chicken per year, however, due to the increase in demand, OSI Group funded a renovation to their production line that will now be able to turn out 24,000 tons per year, double that of years prior.

The addition of the new line benefited both the company and the community alike, with the growth of the factory came also a demand for more hiring opportunities. Today OSI Spain is now able to produce over 45,000 tons of chicken, pork & beef products every year. Managing Director José María del Río stated that he believes the demand for chicken-based products will surely continue to increase in the years going forward and OSI Group will be here to meet not only the demand but also the high-quality people have come to expect from the company.

The state of the art facility includes not only more square footage for the increased production of the chicken products but also includes special accommodation areas for clients that prefer a more customized product both in the production and packaging. The facility also introduces a more employee-friendly environment where staff can come into their own personal lounge for rest during their breaks. In addition, the facility will introduce more receiving areas and refrigerated rooms in order to hold waste.

OSI Group is not only encouraged by the increase in production but also in the decrease in energy consumption. For example, the new facility will cut down on energy consumption by 20 percent this year alone. The European Agricultural Guarantee OSI Group to be funded with a certain amount of money due to their progressive ideas and plans for sustaining the Spanish environment and bringing in employment. Because of this work, OSI has received numerous awards throughout their history including in 2016 when they were recognized by the Spanish chamber of commerce for their dedication in bringing in hundreds of jobs to the country.
