OSI Group LLC a processed food distributing organization acquired Tyson Foods, a company based in Chicago, in the amount of $7.4 million as per the documents submitted at the Cook County Recorder of Deeds.
As of November 2016, Tyson Foods revealed that 480 people lost their jobs when it ceased to operate on October 1, 2016. On June 2, during its final day of production only 250 employees were left, according to Caroline Anh, and most of them got an employment offer from OSI.
The reason given by Tyson Food officials for closing the facility was that the company was unable to meet the evolving demands of the consumers. The two other Chicago facilities of Tyson at 3548 N. Kostner Avenue and 400 S. Jefferson St. are still actively operating. Kevin Scott, OSI North America’s Senior Executive Vice President, said that the Tyson Foods facility increases OSI’s ability to sustain the changing needs of the company’s clients. And the management is eager to have the facility join the growing OSI Group LLC production chain.
Aside from the acquisition of Tyson Foods, OSI Food Solutions Spain added an extension of its product line that resulted in the increased yield of chicken products from a past annual output of 12,000 tons to 24,000 tons at present.
The Managing Director for OSI Spain, Jose Maria del Rio, stated the investment for the extension is an acknowledgment for the increasing request for chicken foodstuffs in Portugal and Spain. He explains that the need for chicken products in the cited region has increased by six percent yearly and the company is prepared for the steady rise in sales.
