OSI Food Solutions is one of the largest private corporations operating in the US. As a food product supplier, they maintain business relationships across industries. With a recent series of restructuring and expansions, they now boast a workforce of more than 20,000 in 17 countries around the world.
Branded retailers and restaurants have chosen to partner with OSI Food Solutions not only to access the products they need at a good price or to cut down on prep time before said products reach their own customers, but to access a level of integrity unmatched in the industry. In operating in an efficient and stellar manner, this large corporation makes sure smaller businesses remain operation without undue complications.
One site that was revamped as part of this effort is located in Toledo, Spain. After the project was completed, this site was able to process 24,000 tons of chicken, and was now able to produce an addition 21,000 tons of beef and pork. Now OSI Food Solutions has new products to provide locally, with a larger staff of 140 employees, and meet a growing demand for these meat products by Spanish businesses and organizations.
Environmental concerns were also taken into account. The Toledo facility was revamped to consume less electricity, and it’s now down to a 20% deficit of what it once needed to run. It’s also been recertified to meet the standards of the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme and all other regulatory bodies in Spain.
OSI Food Solutions owes its care to safety to Dr. Kenneth Petersen, a veterinarian and public health expert, who minds safety concerns for the company as the Senior Vice President of Quality Assurance, Food Safety, and Regulatory Affairs. With a career in the private sector and with the USDA, Dr. Petersen knows the ins and outs of food safety and how make sure it arrives to the public in pristine condition.
OSI Food Solutions sees its customers as business partners. They don’t simply offer animal byproducts, they develop profiles that meet the needs if individual businesses and organizations so that they can serve their own customers what they want most. And in order to do that, they remain informed on changes to food processing and consumer trends in any given market, helping to maintain their global presence.
