Meat alternative
brand Impossible Foods is currently producing nearly 500,000 pounds of product
monthly – with plans to double its output in the near future.

Growth

Impossible
Foods has seen massive growth since its Oakland factory opened last March – at which
time the company was selling about 4,000 pounds of product to 40 restaurants.

Now, the
brand is partnered with 3,000 restaurants and anticipates continued growth.

Job creation

Along with
its plans to increase production, Impossible Foods reports a need to double or triple its production staff – creating jobs for those in surrounding areas.

The company also has plans in the works to open another production facility, also in Oakland.

International

Impossible
Foods’ continued growth is in part the result of its massive international
success.

As of
April, the company had raised $114 million to devote to its US and
international expansion.

The brand’s
recent forays into the international market have landed its products on the
menu at Hong Kong ‘luxury’ hotels
, and on Air New Zealand flights.
