OSI Group’s David McDonald’s Thoughts on Growing a Business

For most of a century, the OSI Group has been growing at a relatively steadily rate; initially founded as a small family-run meat processing company, it’s gone on to become one of the largest food and meat processors and suppliers in the world. Much of this has been because of a few innovative and strategic decisions that the company has made in the past. Over the past few years, much of this has been done under the leadership of David McDonald. Mr. McDonald had worked with a variety of other companies before joining OSI and has had a considerable amount of success in each role.

Throughout much of this time, however, David McDonald has always believed that many public agencies may not be as effective as people would want. Instead, he suggests, it’s been private businesses that have been at the forefront of economic activity and advancements in many countries. As an example, David McDonald used how the OSI Group made it so successful in the first place. This was done through partnering with fast-food giant McDonalds; at the time, the company was rolling out its franchise opportunities, which in itself was a somewhat innovative advancement in the industry. With the partnership between the two companies, both were able to thrive and innovate in their respective areas.

As such, both of these companies became a considerable success; McDonald’s became a household name, and the OSI Group has gone on the become the largest meat processor in the United States. According to most reports, OSI currently creates a few million burgers and food items on a daily basis. However, David McDonald has suggested that this may not have happened if it was two public agencies who had partnered together. While Mr. McDonald has noted that they are effective in some areas; however, he’s also claimed that much of the innovation that has been ascribed to public agencies have been overstated. Because of this, David McDonald has pointed out that historically speaking, it’s been private enterprises that have led advancements and have been the ones that have been truly effective at getting things done.
