Food trends are always evolving and takes change over time and it is chicken that is currently in the most demand. Recently surveyed as the preferred choice, chicken has overtaken beef as the most popular protein source and consumers around the world are increasing their demand for chicken products. An increased number of restaurants are creating new menu items to take advantage of the chicken trend by exploring new tastes, cuts, and spice options, and relying on the OSI Group, one of America’s leading food processing corporations for their chicken processing needs.
While known primarily for beef products and hamburgers, the OSI Group has prepared well for the increase in chicken’s popularity and is now one the dominating suppliers. By acquiring a former Tyson chicken processing facility in Chicago, the OSI group gained enough added capacity to double its chicken processing within the United States. In addition to the Chicago investment, OSI Group made a significant investment in its OSI Spain’s processing facility. Looking to increase production, the facility received an upgrade and a has high-capacity processing line to their Toledo, Spain operation, doubling the processing of chicken in Spain as well.
Alongside the investments made to increase its processing capacity, OSI Group has tasked its culinary experts to increase the variety of chicken products. Nuggets, strips, and patties, either breaded or battered are available and, through the Sous Vide processing, pulled chicken is an option. Along with the enhanced chicken options, sandwich and produce and baked goods are available to complement the chicken.
With this expansion and enhanced menu items, OSI group is well situated to take advantage of the increased demand for chicken products and has again demonstrated how nimble its operations are. Its presence in over 17 countries has allowed the OSI group to meet the area’s demand and respond to the local tastes of the communities and prepare for the next food trend.
