David McDonald, also known as Dave, serves as President and Chief Operations Officer (COO) of global food processor OSI Group, LLC. A graduate of Iowa University holding a degree in Animal Science, Dave has been instrumental in steering the company’s sustained lead in the food processing industry. He has been with OSI industries for over 25 years, holding different positions in different times. Previously he served as the Project Manager of OSI Industries.

When Marfrig Global Foods S.A, acquired OSI group operations in Europe and Brazil, Mr. McDonald served as an independent director. He also sits as a board member of OSI Group as well as OSI International Foods (Australia) Pty Limited.

The sixty-three year old executive has played a key role in the improvement and refinement of the group’s culture while being keen on creating and maintaining new relationships. He highlights that OSI industry expansions have been risking taking processes whose outcome can be measured through the successes that have been witnessed so far.

Under his leadership, OSI Industries have expanded in mergers and acquisitions, further cementing its positioning as a world leader in the food processing industries. Among these acquisitions is that of Chicago based Tyson’s foods acquired in 2016, Flagship Europe, one of the leading UK foodservice providers and German based Hynek Schlachthof GmbH.

One of OSI’s key concerns is the impact of their business on people and the world at large. The food service requires great care for both the people and the environment in which operations are done. McDonald has been a leading voice in ensuring that OSI’s business model operates within sustainable social, economic and environmental frameworks. All global networks under OSI Group are expected to observe sustainability measures that are workable and achievable, modeled to fit the specific areas where they operate from.
