Impossible Foods Partnership with OSI Group
Impossible Foods is a company that has been blowing up with the demand for their most popular product, the Impossible Burger. So many different restaurants and fast-food chains have requested stock of the Impossible Burger that the company has had to drastically limit their sales simply because they haven’t been able to produce enough product for everyone. To help meet this increasing demand, Impossible Foods started looking for food producers that could help them make more product and so they chose OSI Group to work with.
Through the partnership with Impossible Foods, OSI Group has worked out plans to start production immediately to help increase the production of the Impossible Burger. Additionally, plans have been set in motion to make this not only short-term but a long-term deal that will have OSI Group increasingly adding more production lines over the next few years to facilitate demands. Impossible Foods knew that they could hire OSI Group to help them as the company has more than 65 facilities all around the world which would let them spread out product easily through different countries.
Impossible Foods was first founded in 2011 by a biochemistry professor and pediatrician who was interested in creating new food substitutes out of plants that would not only be more healthier but would help restore many of our ecosystems that have been damaged through meat production. Since launching the Impossible Burger, the company has tripled its production rate in their Oakland plant since early 2019. At around the same time, the company decided to hire Dennis Woodside as the President to supervise and improve the ways the company can expand through. Woodside was chosen as he has had experience as the CEO of Motorola before working at Google after its acquisition of the company. Having this type of experience on their team lets Impossible Foods expand the way they are doing through partnerships with leading food processing companies all around the world.
