AURORA, Ill. – OSI Food Solutions Hungary invested $25 million to add a high-capacity production line and large cold storage area to an existing building in Bábolna, Hungary, the company announced June 13.
The expansion was completed earlier in 2012, and has increased annual production capacity of processed chicken products to 22,000 tons from 7,000 tons, OSI said.
“The goal of the present capacity development is to strengthen our position in the Central-Eastern-European region,” said György Erdélyi, managing director of OSI Food Solutions Hungary. “We will now produce the items formerly made at other European OSI plants in the Bábolna facility.”
OSI Hungary sells the majority of its products to the European Division of McDonald’s. The company makes chicken products for McDonald’s restaurants in Hungary and 15 other European countries.
