Digital Transformation at Old MacDonald Farms - a Personal Story
Kirk Da Costa President  at FT3 Advisory and Consulting Services

Kirk DaCosta is Director at Old MacDonald Farms and President at FT3 Advisory and Consulting Services. Kirk grew up working in the family business, making bacon in the factory at the back of his parents’ house, delivering hams door-to-door at Christmas. 

After graduating from the University of Miami, he built a career envisioning and implementing enterprise solutions for major U.S. corporations in financial services and supply chain sectors. He is digitally transforming the family business using the same tactics he did in those corporations, while operating a niche consulting firm specializing in solution architecture management, data science and analytics. 


Old MacDonald Farms is a local food producer in Jamaica that has been operating for over 30 years. With Odoo, they’re improving financial operations management and preparing to go global. They’ve had tremendous growth over the last 30 years, but our operations are still mostly manual/ paper and disconnected.

After some research, they went live with Odoo in January of 2020, focused on leveraging the Accounting, Sales, Website and Manufacturing modules. Adoption went way faster than expected: Along with the Head of Sales, they planned to migrate Order-to-Cash operations for each sales person one at a time. After 2 weeks of using Odoo, the Office staff quit using the old Peachtree system in favor of Odoo!

Moving from paper/ desktop solutions to Odoo allowed us to recruit global and local resources to assist with bringing our Accounting operation up to date. Odoo has been a perfect fit for Old MacDonald. With Odoo, they’ve been able to put in place a strong foundation that enabled the business to scale efficiently. Join this talk to find out more about Old MacDonald’s business process transformation with Odoo.
