About OSI Group
OSI Group, formally Otto & Sons, was created originally as a small butcher shop in Illinois. Thanks to great business decisions over the years, OSI Group has expanded to an international company. The first big partnership between OSI Group was with McDonald’s. This partnership played a major role in the expansion of the company, enabling them to venture out of Illinois and eventually across national borders.
OSI Group is now a worldwide distributor of meat and food products, operating in several countries including the United States and Australia. David McDonald, the President of OSI, was born in Iowa. He went to college with the intention of pursing a career in wildlife studies, earning a degree in Animal Science. Beginning as a project manager at OSI Group, he quickly moved up the corporate ladder and earned his position as President of OSI Group.
McDonald, in an interview, promised that in the future, his company will continue to bring the best product to their customers. “We will adapt to the changing business environment and will listen to the needs of our customers,” said McDonald.
