One of the world’s largest processors of animal proteins and meat will now join forces with what may be the world’s best product for people who never eat meat.
OSI Group has struck a deal with Impossible Foods, the Redwood City, California, company that is setting the world on fire with its astoundingly successful Impossible Burger.
The Impossible Burger contains not a single animal protein but tastes so much like meat that even dyed-in-the-wool lovers of McDonalds Big Macs and Burger King Whoppers are buying the no-meat alternative at a blistering pace.
But that rapid rate of sales has put Impossible Foods into a difficult position. The all-plant patty is in such huge demand that the company cannot crank out enough of them in its Oakland, California, facility. To remedy the situation, they turned to the firm famous for supplying McDonalds with the millions of all-beef patties it sells every day. That company is OSI Group McDonalds.

OSI, based in the Chicago suburb of Aurora, has a 60-year relationship with McDonalds. It is among the most vaunted partnerships in American business history. OSI Group proved to be the company that could keep up with the enormous demand for Big Macs and Quarter Pounders and gets the job done.
It is the enormous capacity and infrastructure of OSI that Impossible Foods is interested in. It needs a reliable partner to make millions of the vegan Impossible Burger daily. The hot item is currently sold in some 10,000 restaurants. But company officials say that will be more than 17,000 by the end of 2019.
The company is also eager to begin offering the Impossible Burger on the shelves of grocery stores. The only way it will accomplish this tall order is if they are backed by one of the most efficient food processors in the world.
OSI Group has the facilities and the advanced food processing technology to accommodate the seemingly impossible task it has agreed to take on. The company owns 65 gigantic processing plants in 17 nations. It has infrastructure and capacity worldwide – perfect to match the goals of Impossible Foods and its dream of conquering the vegan burger market globally.
