Those who saw David McDonald grow in Iowa, cannot believe what the young boy whom they used to see in their neighborhood came to be. Today, McDonald, the proud founder of OSI Group is a man with a chain of Chinese facilities that produce, package, and distribute animal food products to a large client base in Europe and other parts of the world.
As a young man, David McDonald loved the idea that animals can be tamed for food. With this blazing passion, David joined college. His aim was to study about animals. That is what he did. David McDonald graduated with a Degree in Animal Science. With his degree at hand, he landed his first job at the North America Meat Commission. He started as a junior staff but later became the Chairman of the commission. It is while he was here he started his animal product company OSI Group. During its tender years, David did not even have any idea that one day, OSI Group would grow to become one of the premier animal products company as it is today.
For the more than 30 years David has been with his OSI Group, the company has made many strides. Recently, through a press statement, the company reported that it has expanded its Toledo, Spain facility. While commenting on the expansion, David McDonald said that the company decided to expand the facility in order to increase its production capacity. “In recent days, there has been an increasing demand of our poultry, beef, and pork products. We receive more orders and we do not want to frustrate our clients,” the president said. Spain and Spain increased its consumption of food products making it necessary for OSI Group to increase its production from 12, 000 tons to 24, 000 tons.
Expanding Toledo facility is just one of the latest steps OSI Group is doing under the oversight of David McDonald. The other great achievement is when OSI Group bought Baho Foods, a Dutch deli meat processing plant. This latest acquisition places OSI Group in the forefront as the fastest growing animal products company in Europe that carters for clients around the world.
