Everyone knows just recently OSI Group and Impossible Foods entered into a partnership to manufacture the plant based patties for Burger King’s Impossible Whopper. Since the launching of this Impossible Whopper it has been an extreme success. Now Mcdonalds has launched a test plant based burger called the P.L.T in Canada. The P.L.T was a success in Canada and the company also launched a plant based burger test run in Germany that was very successful. Mcdonald’s is currently planning on launching a plant based burger test here in the United States in 2020 since the Canada and Germany test runs were successful. It will be very easy for Mcdonald’s to launch its plant based burgers because of the manufacturing deal that OSI has made with Impossible Foods. A representative from Mcdonald’s stated that the company was hesitant to enter the plant based patty sector at first because he did not see how the Mcdonald’s restaurants could be supplied effectively on a nationwide scale. Since OSI has entered into the manufacturing plant based burger sector this allows for Mcdonald’s to go full steam ahead on their plant based burger launch.
