Kevin Scott, the Senior Executive Vice President of OSI North America, mentioned the Impossible burgers they make would be on the shelves as early as next month.
Increasing Production Capacity
Scott went on to say that the deal is aimed at helping Impossible food increase its production capacity. He added that his company already had the equipment necessary for making the impossible burger installed.

This will be achieved through the expansion of the available processing facilities and also the building of new ones. According to Sheetal Shah, the Impossible Foods Senior Vice President, the company has conducted comprehensive due diligence before making this co-manufacturing deal.
