David McDonald Introducing Sustainability to the OSI Group

David McDonald is the president and chief operating officer for OSI Group, a global meat processing company with its headquarters at Aurora, Illinois. OSI has over 70 branches in 17 countries and is the top meat supplier for leading food companies around the world such as Starbuck’s Burger King, McDonald’s, Subway, Papa John’s and Yum. The company has experienced exponential growth in recent years since David McDonald took charge of operations, expanding into Geneva and Hungary within a short period. He has also overseen the opening of two poultry plants in China, the launch of a new beef processing plant in Poland and a frozen foods’ processing plant in India.

Mr. McDonald has been actively working towards making the OSI Group a sustainable organization, able to stand on its own and achieve growth through sustainable production activities. One of the main ways that he has led this charge has been through the acquisition of companies in new markets within which they wish to make an entry. The most notable of these is the recent purchase of Baho Food, a Dutch food processing company with operations in the Netherlands and Germany. This acquisition is aimed at ensuring that the OSI Group establishes presence in European food market while not having to start operations from scratch and wrestle with the challenges of attaining market growth. Having acquired Baho Foods, OSI Group will benefit from the company’s established infrastructure, operations and established a market presence. They will also benefit from their clients and customers who are expected to continue transacting business with them henceforth.

The OSI Group has operated in China for the past 20 years and has experienced exponential growth in the country as the country has grown economically over the years. It currently operates eight facilities within the Asian country and is now engaged in the construction of what is expected to become the biggest poultry company in country. Last year they were involved in a flurry of activities in the country. They started the construction of a new mega-plant for in Henan Province. They also announced the agreement of a joint-venture with DOYOO Group in Zhoukou to form DaOSI. DaOSI became the third largest vertically integrated poultry production company in China.
