Impossible Foods Solidifies the Impossible Burger Co-Production Deal with Legendary OSI Group

OSI Group began in a small suburb of Chicago called Deer Park. Its founders were German immigrants to America who landed here in 1908 named Otto Kolkovsky and his two sons. Soon the small meat packing company gained momentum, and because of its quality of service toe, Chicago customers found many opportunities to grow and expand. A significant leap fo growth took place in 1955 when Ray Kroc approached Otto & Sons on the eve of his going international with his McDonalds franchises. Ray Kroc found the superior services of Otto & Sons and made the group its sole producer for McDonalds, a business partnership that has lasted more than 65 years to date.

OSI Group is not foreign to significant challenges, and over the 114 years of being in business has given the food-packing industry an excellent example of award-winning service, which has caused OSI being a recipient of many industry awards owing to meat-packing innovations since its beginnings. In 2016 when Impossible Foods had launched its new Impossible Burger and found they needed a co-producer to help with the massive amount of orders being back-ordered, they turned to OSI Group and entered into a co-production agreement. The agreement allows OSI Group to produce the Impossible Burger within its Chicago plant, a plant designed as a copy of the Impossible Foods 68,000 square foot facility in Oakland, with Impossible Foods employees trained to produce the Impossible Burger.

Shateel Shah, a spokesperson for Impossible Foods, told reporters the company looks forward to working with the Legendary meat-packer and learn from its many years of innovation. The orders for the Impossible Burger had grown to a large amount by 2019 to the excess of 17,000 and were growing still higher when OSI Group accepted the co-production agreement from Impossible Foods. Today Impossible Foods is receiving larger orders from many fast food restaurants like Burger King, which recently launched its Impossible Whopper in 7,500 stores. Also, Little Ceasars has launched its Impossible Sausage in several of its restaurants. Impossible Foods is a food science company that works with all-natural plant-based ingredients to create various plant-based food products. Impossible Foods has other plant based products in its food science plant-based production pipeline like seafood and vegetables, which are still under development.
