Nothing Is Impossible For McDonalds Meat Supplier OSI Group
As consumers demand more plant-based products, that has left companies, such as Impossible Foods, scrambling to meet demands. So, what did Impossible Foods do? They reached out to the top meat supplier for McDonalds. OSI Group has been the main burger supplier for McDonald’s for decades. When Impossible Foods came knocking on the door, they jumped at the chance to help. Impossible Foods believes that it is OSI Group’s work with the famous fast food restaurant chain that makes them a great partner. OSI has installed new equipment in their plant in California to help Impossible Foods to meet their demands. OSI will begin to make Impossible burgers before the end of summer.
Impossible Foods was not prepared for their plant base burger to be in such high demand so quickly. However, the chain restaurants that they supply include Cheesecake Factory, White Castle, and Qdoba have added the plant-base burger to their menu. It was the announcement made by Burger King that made Impossible Foods realize they need more manufacturing space. Burger King wants to offer their customers the Impossible Whopper before the end of the year. That announced left the plant-base burger in high demand.
Impossible Foods is not the only company that is struggling with the demands of plant-based meats. However, they did partner with one of the largest food producers around the world. OSI will be able to double the production of the Impossible Burger. It will also enable Impossible Foods to develop new food products. That will certainly please their growing customer base. Does this mean that the Impossible burger will show up on the McDonald’s menu soon? We will have to wait and see. McDonald’s does not seem to be in any hurry to jump on this new trend. They are happy to sit in the back seat on this one and let restaurants such as Burger King and Del Taco give it a run first.
