McDonald And Beyond

China and More

Among its most recent endeavors in China in 2016, The OSI Group and its President David McDonald – launched, expanded and then announced plans to incorporate seven all-new global processing and production facilities. In September, The OSI Group broke ground through a Portland beef-processing facility that sought to replace another existing operation in hopes to bolster its staff by 30 percent.

As of last January, the company announced openings for its upcoming modern feed mill within the Shandong Province – to hold annual capacities of 600,000 metric tons. This alone would make it one of the largest Chinese feed mills to operate. Plus, another frozen foods processing plant, based in Madanapalle, India – one that initially sought to focus on manufacturing vegetable products for fast-service restaurants and retail suppliers – joined the team in March.

Last June, The OSI Group had announced its new plant, based in Geneva, Ill. The plan was to produce branded or private-label frozen entrées. This plant’s attached to a facility that’s owned by Millard. Also, The OSI Food Solutions in Hungary added high-capacity production lines and larger cold storage areas to its building in Bábolna. This $25 million addition tripled the production capacities of quality-processed chicken products to an annual 22,000 tons.

David McDonald as President and COO remembers years in which they’ve opened more plants and even years in which they’ve opened less. Nonetheless, the company continues in its appetite for growth. OSI Chairman, Sheldon Lavin, always pushed the team forward; therefore, there’s a constant energy within the organization to both grow and become more significant in offering more to its customers.


David McDonald OSI Group notes that offering more to each customer doesn’t limit to production capacity but includes product development also. The OSI Group partners with clients on products that they need to grow the business and, in turn, joins its suppliers to achieve its outcome.

According to, as consumers grow more demanding and more sophisticated in food choice – natural or organic, premium or affordable, healthy or tasty – the partnering efforts to give them what they want has thus become even more crucial.
