The purchase of the facility costed OSI Food Solutions $7.4 million.
OSI Food Solutions also decided to expand an existing facility located in Toledo, Spain this year. The facility processes pork, beef, and chicken, and OSI added a high capacity production line to help deliver more chicken and chicken products to its customers. The facility was formerly able to process up to 12,000 tons of chicken a year and can now process up to 24,000 tons. The reason for the upgrade was due to the increasing demand for chicken products in the region, which includes Spain and Portugal. David McDonald, the company’s president, was on-hand during the upgrade to comment on the fact that it will definitely help OSI to better serve its customers in the area.
