Tried and Tested Leadership with OSI’s David McDonald

David McDonald is the president and CEO of OSI Industries, a holding company of meat processors supplying meat products to food service enterprises and retail businesses. He is also a director of the OSI International Foods (Australia) Pty Limited, and Independent Director at Marfrig Global Foods S.A.

OSI Industries has enjoyed exponential growth in the domestic and global food industry and this growth is expected to continue for years to come. The company produces meats, vegetables, sandwiches, sauces, etc., and has solidified itself as the market leader in key markets around the world. OSI is flourishing in Eastern Europe (Slovakia, Baltic States, Sweden, etc.), India, Eastern Asia (China and Japan), and of course, the United States.

This behemoth’s foray into the Chinese market was not by fluke. David McDonald surmised that China is ranked fourth globally in terms of population and its middle-income group is burgeoning. This presents a huge market potential for OSI and hence the need to take full advantage of this opportune moment. Further, McDonald touts the slogan “In China for China” to signify the company’s dedication to growth in this promising market.

As of September 2012, OSI commemorated a two-decade presence in China and with plenty to smile about. One of the pivotal points happened during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. The nation was abuzz with expectation, bursting with tourists, and businesses racked in tons of revenue. OSI China supplied a staggering 113 tons of meat products, eggs, and onions. The company received high praise from the Beijing Olympic Committee for their outstanding service and registering zero grievances. Since then, OSI China has been the preferred supplier for super brands like Burger King, Subway, Papa John’s, among others.

Another significant milestone for OSI Industries is the expansion of OSI Food Solutions Spain. This high-investment endeavor comprised of adding an extra high-capacity like in Toledo hence doubling annual production to reach 45,000 tons of meat products. This strategic move will satiate the ever-growing demand for meat in Spain and neighboring Portugal. David McDonald inferred that expanding capacity would have three-fold benefits; increasing major accounts in retail, offering diversified products and spurring the growth of present clients.
