According to an Impossible Foods source, the East Oakland-based facility will be able to pump out a staggering 1 million pounds of its plant-based ‘meat per month, enough to enough to serve about 1 million of its quarter-pound Impossible Burgers a week.

The company, which is famous for its ‘bleeding’ burger made from plants, is also reportedly working on a range of other meat and dairy alternatives.

‘Urgent’

Impossible Foods CEO and Founder Patrick O. Brown said the new plant is part of a plan to make plant-based meat alternatives more accessible.
