Impossible Foods, Redwood City, Calif., launched a co-manufacturing collaboration with OSI Group, Aurora, Ill., where OSI will begin producing Impossible Foods’ the Impossible Burger, adding short-term capacity to Impossible Foods’ plant in Oakland, Calif.

“We conducted an exhaustive due diligence process to determine how to scale our manufacturing, both in the short term and over the next several years, and we were thoroughly impressed with OSI’s commitment to quality and responsiveness,” says Sheetal Shah, senior vice president of product and operations for Impossible Foods. “OSI has already installed equipment to make the Impossible Burger, and we’ll start seeing new capacity every week.”

“We look forward to lending our expertise to Impossible Foods, as it embarks on one of the most ambitious startups in the food industry,” says Kevin Scott, senior executive vice president, OSI North America. “At the same time, Impossible Foods will help fulfill the OSI Group’s commitment to sustainable food production -- one of the core prisms through which OSI management makes operational decisions.”
