New GenOSI Facility Opens in Philippines

Aurora, IL, USA, June 7, 2017OSI Group, along with its joint venture partner Fred Uytengsu, and in cooperation with GADC, announces the opening of a brand new GenOSI facility in the Philippines. This new 7,500 square-meter meat processing plant was introduced to the world on May 19, 2017 at a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The new facility is located at Canlubang Industrial Estate, Calamba, Laguna and will foster increased productivity of quality food items made for the restaurant and food service sector, including beef, chicken and fish products.

Featuring state-of-the-art technology and machinery, the new GenOSI plant has an annual capacity of 23,000 metric tons. The new plant replaces the original facility in Cainta, Rizal, near Manila, which opened in 1990. This means GenOSI has entered its 27th year of business as a premier food supplier and employer in the Philippines. Although this new plant is 50 km to the north of the former location, GenOSI was able to retain 95 percent of its workforce to assure continuity of its greatest asset: its people.

With the new plant’s efficient operations and innovations in food technology, GenOSI reinforces its commitment to global food safety and unsurpassed quality standards to better serve the Filipino consumer.

“I congratulate and thank my partner, Fred Uytengsu, along with the employees of GenOSI and the engineering project team, on the grand opening of this world class facility,” said OSI Group Chairman and CEO Sheldon Lavin. “Our new operation incorporates industry leading design to ensure our customers in the Philippines receive cost effective products made to the highest standards of quality and food safety.”

“I also want to thank OSI for these many years of great partnership,” said GenOSI President Fred Uytengsu. “It’s been an incredible journey and we look forward to many more years of collaboration together.”
