McDonald’s OSI Group Remarkable Achievements

As the President and COO at OSI Group (a privately held global food processing company), Mr. David G. McDonald has a wide and distinguished career spanning many decades in the professional food industry. He serves as Director of OSI International Foods (Australia) and holds a prestigious degree in Animal Science from Iowa State University. Mr. McDonald has been a proud Director and Chairman of several major food organizations throughout the United States, Europe and Brazil.

In 2012, OSI listed four OSI Group affiliates (including two partnerships) as best in sustainability suppliers in five different major projects! A noteworthy example was OSI Food Solutions of Europe, for its animal welfare initiatives which helped reduce foot pad lesions in chicken. Elsewhere in the Philippines, GenOSI (an OSI partner), helped provide welfare officers with proper training for animal care and safety. As another example in Taiwan, K&K Foods (an OSI Partner), helped to develop an excellent working model of wastewater recycling / reuse projects to purify, reuse, and repurpose used water. This works in line with Mr. McDonald’s noble objectives in environmental preservation and the conservation and safe handling of chemicals and pesticides. Celebrating well over 20 years in the Chinese market alone, in 2008 some 113 tons of beef, chicken, pork, eggs and dehydrated onions received zero complaints from China!

Furthermore, the acquisition of Baho Food (a Dutch Manufacturer) has empowered OSI in leveraging a broader presence in European markets. McDonald’s states that “The Company’s [Bahoo Food] portfolio of products and brands compliments OSI’s current strengths while broadening our capabilities to best serve the evolving needs of our customers.” Indeed with so many incredible accolades in his proud portfolio, it’s amply clear that David McDonald OSI Group and his OSI organization are leaders in compliancy and safety for the global food industry.
