Impossible Foods and OSI Group Partner Produce and Distribute the Impossible Burger

Impossible Foods began its food science research and development project to find the perfect plant based burger in 2011. It set up its headquarters in Redwood City and started looking for all the ideal plant-based ingredients that would produce a burger that had all the qualities of a beef burger but without beef. After many years of intense research and experimentation, it arrived at the exact combination of plant-based ingredients that formed its perfect Impossible Burger. The Impossible Burger look, tasted, cooked, and bled like a burger, but it remained 100% plant-based. Impossible Foods was very enthusiastic about showing its Impossible Burger to the world and debuted the Impossible Burger, a David Chang’s Momofuku Nishi restaurant in New York City.

The debuted event took place in the Summer of 2016, and by the beginning of 2019, more than 10,000 orders had accumulated that were being filled for the Impossible Burger at Impossible Foods 67,000 square foot production facility in Oakland. By mid-2019, the rules had become so many that Impossible Foods made a co-production agreement with the 113-year legend in meat packing, OSI Group. OSI Group has been producing best McDonalds burgers since Roy Kroc selected OSI Group to be its sole meat-packer since 1955. OSI Group is now in 17 countries and 65 international locations. The number of people that OSI Group employs is 20,000. OSI manufactured an exact copy of the Impossible Foods production facility in its Chicago plant, which produces parallel to the Impossible Foods production facility and now brings all of his distribution network and history of excellent service to bringing the Impossible Burger to thousands of food-purveyors and restaurants.

According to Shateel Shah, speaking about the co-production agreement between the two companies said, it was pleased to work alongside the legendary company and hoped to learn from its innovations and service since 1909 when it first began in Deer Park, a Chicago suburb. Recently Impossible Foods increased its orders when Burger King launched the Impossible Whopper nationwide in 7,500 of its restaurants, bringing the demand for the Impossible Burger. Impossible Foods recently were approved by the FDA to place the Impossible Burger in large and small grocery stores, which means the Impossible Burger will, in the future, be available in more retail stores across America.

OSI Group Saves the Day

In late July Impossible Foods made a deal with the food manufacturing company OSI Group. The need for alternative meats has reached an all time high and to keep up the demand this deal had to happen to stay ahead. OSI Group is known for their deal with McDonalds. The OSI Group has been working on the Impossible Burger which is based out of the west suburbs of Chicago to help with the demand for plant-based burgers. President of Impossible Foods say that the OSI Group will help double production soon and quadruple by the end of 2019. Earlier in the year Woodside and Impossible foods thought about not partnering with any one but quickly thought against it and realized they need help.

With this deal the idea is to never have a shortage of burgers again. Other chain companies such as Burger King, White Castle, Qdoba, and others have jumped on the plant based meat bandwagon which has cause a shortage of Impossible Burgers. McDonalds however associated with OSI Group, has taken the wait and see method for these plant-based burgers. Nestle and Tyson are two other leading food suppliers that are working on their own plant-based meat as well.

Impossible Burger’s Senior Vice President of Productions indicated that a deal with McDonalds could be in the works but isn’t there yet. On top of the new deal, Impossible Foods was just received a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) letter. This came from the United States Food and Drug Administration for their ingredient soy leg-hemoglobin. This will allow them to sell their meat at retails stores all over the country. With a GRAS letter and a new deal, it seems that Impossible Foods will have a big impact on the future of chain restaurants and their most popular burgers as well as retail stores.

Bhanu Choudhrie and Managing Culture

Bhanu Choudhrie may know that those companies that understand the need for parabolic trajectories would realize that there is no resting point. They would realize that they have a mandate of striving for greater heights, and pushing for further accomplishments that make sense overall. Instead of getting to bloat, Bhanu Choudhrie would encourage that they should continue to build their moat. As such, Bhanu Choudhrie would see that these companies would understand that they would need to trim off the fat, to seek further disruption and look for more ways to bring their innovations to the business world, in a way that consumers would certainly love.

While Bhanu Choudhrie says that this would be hard to do, it would be something of the greatest importance. Resting on one mountain would not help in the long run. It would only hurt, as such, one must make certain to see the next peak, to strive and get to that level. As stated earlier it would certainly be of great difficulty and, but it would be something that one would have to strive toward. These are the types of companies that investors would want to own, these are the types of companies that investors would need to seek out and understand why they will continue to be loved by the market, why they would continue to strive and why they would be able to hold a competitive advantage over the years.

There are a variety of companies such as this one that would certainly exist within the traditional equity markets, finding them may be a tad bit difficult, but when one finds it, one would have to hold onto them with great tenacity and strength. One would, admittedly, never sell these types of companies unless the dynamics change. The company has to not only innovate but must look at the different numbers that drive its business, it must then look to see the operational costs, and understand how they can bring in more quality into a successful business. When one is closely keeping track of expenses while managing to improve overall culture, great results can be seen.

Sahm Adrangi Shorts an Online Marketing Company

Sahm Adrangi has an eye for finding companies that aren’t being upfront about their practices. He also has a talent for making a profit when they fail through short-selling shares of the company. While most people see a shady business and just make comments on social media and boycott buying their products, Sahm Adrangi takes a bit further by actively taking a stand against these companies and publishing funded research to support their claims. He does this work through the private investment company that he founded in 2009, Kerrisdale Capital. The company that started with just a million in capital now handles $100’s of millions at times. Before starting Kerrisdale, Sahm Adrangi had several years of experience in the financial industry that helped him gain the knowledge and experience he uses at Kerrisdale Capital.

Sahm Adrangi’s latest short sale target is QuinStreet. The online marketing company has been facing financial problems for years and many suspected that they were eventually headed for bankruptcy. Recently, their stock prices rose considerably after a considerable increase in revenue and gained the attention of Sahm Adrangi. It turns out, according to the research published by Kerrisdale Capital, the revenue increase may not be what it appears to be. While the company has experienced a considerably higher amount of traffic to their affiliates, it’s really only an increase to one of their clients.

There are many reasons to suspect that the vast majority of the traffic is being generated by a computer program that is designed to create fake clicks on links and form submissions. This means that QuinStreet’s clients are possibly paying the company for views that had no chance of producing business for them and were never actually from a human user. If Sahm Adrangi’s suspicions are indeed correct as they have been in the past, there is an exceptionally good chance that the stock price will fall to nearly nothing almost immediately due to clients no longer wanting to be in business with QuinStreet out of fear they are paying for services they are not actually receiving.
