As worldwide demand for meat increases, many meat companies are working diligently to keep up with global demand. However, the most successful of companies are working not only to meat that global demand, but are working hard to get out in front of the demand. These companies are predicting desire and working to be in place to meet that demand before it even rises.
OSI Food Solutions is the leader in expansion to meet pre-emptive demand. The company has positioned itself to be ready to supply the volume of meat that people are wanting, both at the moment and in the future. OSI Food Solutions is a worldwide leader in the provision of the finest quality of meats. Among its many offerings are beef, steaks, pork, poultry products and sausages.
The company is a legend in the industry of meat processing and production. It was founded in 1909 by a German immigrant who has a passion for meat. His goal was very admirable. He wanted his family and his neighborhood to have access to the best quality of meat on the market. At the time there were not many options for buying meat, so he founded the neighborhood meat market that became OSI Food Solutions.
Today that little neighborhood meat market has grown into the largest privately-owned purveyor of quality meat products. It is also ranked as number 58 on Forbes’ list of top privately-held companies in the United States. The company has more than 20,000 employees throughout the world and has 65 facilities in 17 countries. It is a true global entity and continues to grow rapidly on an annual basis.
Part of the success of OSI Food Solutions is the company’s strategic growth plan. The company is known for being incredibly focused on how it manages its growth strategy. For example, OSI Group has already established a facility in Toledo, Spain. However, after studying market trends and realizing that there was a specific market demand growth for poultry products, they made the strategic decision to expand offerings in its production of poultry products. So, OSI Group decided that they would invest $17 million dollars to build a high-capacity production line. The company knew that this investment would be recouped as the demand continues to rise. Thanks to the high-capacity production line, OSI Group can now produce double the amount of chicken products. The production went from 12,000 tons annually to 24,000 tons.
