OSI Group just enlarged its Spain facility with a new production line meant to improve the production of chicken products. The company realized that demand in Spain and Portugal for the chicken products is on the rise and they had to come up with a mechanism to cater for it. The new project that came to an end in 2017 has enabled the Spain plant to produce double the amount of chicken products it has been offering. In addition to this, the facility received some other improvements including security apparatus.
