In a 2017 report by Forbres magazine, OSI Food Solutions was listed as one of the top 100 food production companies in America. This comes as no surprise when you consider the amazing steps that OSI Food group has been taking in the past decade. They have been working hard to expand their operations and increase their production overseas. The beef, chicken, and poultry market has been growing at a steady pace for the past 10 years and it shows no signs of halting. The world is undergoing a shift in their diet. Many nations are choosing to switch to a meat based diet in the 21st century.
This is especially true in Asia. Many Chinese citizens have modified their diet to accommodate their middle class tastes. They are choosing to eat more meat as opposed to the traditional diet of rice. This switch has driven the demand of chicken and beef in China to rise well above 30%. OSI Food Solutions has taken this opportunity to increase their presence in Asia. They have cemented deals with both private and public clients to provide the country with their meals. OSI Food Solutions has made very lucrative deals with companies like McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, and KFC. The new demand for great fast food has been the primary driving force behind the growth of the meat industry in Asia.
OSI Food Solutions has also increased their production capacity by opening more production plants in the Midwest and improving their factories in Spain. Together, these investments have increased their production capacity by more than double! They have gone from 12,000 tons to over 24,000 tons in Spain alone. These improvements come at the perfect time because the market in Spain has increased by 3% every year for the past 10 years. The worldwide demand for meat has driven this massive growth of OSI Food Solutions.
OSI Food Solutions is a privately owned company but they have impressive deals with publicly owned corporations. They have operations in Chicago, Spain, and Brazil as well as many other countries. The operations of each location are managed by an independent regional operating officer to keep operations secure and efficient.
