Impossible Foods Launch
Impossible Foods was launched in 2011 as a producer of alternative beef products. Its goal was to produce plant-based products which would mimic the qualities of beef completely but remain 100% plant-based. By 2016 Impossible Foods reached their research and development goals and was ready to premier its Impossible Burger. In Mid-2016 at a David Change restaurant in New York City proper, in the presence of many food critics, renowned chefs, and other invited-only guests, the Impossible Burger was unveiled for tasting. The reception was positive, and within days and weeks ahead orders for the Impossible Burger kept the headquarters of Impossible Foods busy with order-taking. By the beginning of two thousand nineteen, nearly 10,000 orders for the Impossible Burger had been received, and Impossible Foods was stretching to accommodate the requests in its 68,000 square food production facility in Oakland.
Co-production Agreement with OSI Group
While orders for the Impossible Burger kept increasing, and many more fast-food restaurants were requesting the Impossible Burger Impossible Foods needed to find co-production support. OSI was the perfect choice for Impossible Foods to enter into a co-production agreement. The present deal allows OSI to co-produce the Impossible Burger in its Chicago plant, which has since been fitted with an almost exact copy of the Impossible Foods Production facility in Oakland.
