In the last 5 years, OSI Industries has shown a lot of effort when it comes to expansion both in the foreign and domestic markets. There has been a significant increase in demand for many of their products around the world, especially when it comes to chicken. This passion for growth has been taking place for years but has been spearheaded since the 1970’s by Sheldon Lavin. Recently, the company made some considerable purchases and acquisitions that will lead to their reach being increased significantly.
One of the areas in which OSI Industries has included in their expansion is in their hometown. In 2017, the company purchased a plant that had formerly housed Tyson Foods in order to increase their production capabilities in North America. They already have another facility relatively close that will continue to operate as it has been. The Tyson plant that was purchased by OSI Industries will increase their operating space by 200.000 feet. While Tyson mainly focused on producing different types of poultry products, there are plans by OSI Group to produce different types of meat as well.

In Spain, OSI Industries has also been hard at work expanding as the area is one of the most quickly growing when it comes to demand for chicken. A big effort in expansion took place in Toledo, Spain that will increase their production capabilities by 100%. While they used to be able to produce around 12,000 tons a year, this number will increase to 24,000. In total, this leaves the company with the ability to produce around 45,00 of chicken, pork, and beef a year.
In the Netherlands and Germany, Baho Foods was a big player in snack foods and deli meats. With the acquisition of the company by OSI Industries, the company plans to expand to the Netherlands and the further into the rest of Europe. Najo Foods is present in 18 countries already and is working with OSI Group to see how they can continue to expand their reach. The executives at Baho are excited to be a part of OSI and trust in its capabilities.
