OSI Group McDonalds is a wholly owned food processing group with global branches in 65 locations around the planet. They have 17 countries from which they operate their business, and their total employee count is currently at 20,000. They got this way because they were a trusted meat processing company in close proximity to the world famous McDonalds, as one of four of the giant’s suppliers of meats and other foods. Originally Otto and Sons, they had to change their name in 1975 and get a new CEO Sheldon Lavin in order to keep pace with the growing demand of Mcdonald’s and go with someone who was already proficient in scaling up organizations. COO David McDonald is the key player who has been in the food industry for 30 years and has been instrumental in the growth of the company both locally and internationally. The hardest part of the growth largely deals with the international laws regarding food and trade, and being that they are written in foreign languages and with foreign currency, this is probably the hardest part of the job for David. As a family man with six kids of his own and a wife Malinda, OSI Group McDonalds is fortunate to have David at its helm with Sheldon guiding the ship of so many employees which call each other family.

OSI Group McDonalds largely operates from a place of trust and respect in the family sense, while still holding onto the German attention to detail which stem from the original founders of the company, Otto and Sons. They have expanded into Europe by acquiring both the Creative Foods Europe group and the Baho Group out of the Netherlands. At its core, OSI Group McDonalds has remained true to its roots while expanding into foreign parts of the world with constant food needs.
