Edward Baker of Advisors Equity Fund II Will Present a Pre-IPO Offering of IMPOSSIBLE™ Foods Wednesday, Aug 26th, 2:00 PM EDT (11:00 AM PDT) For Accredited Investors Only.
The two largest players in the plant-based meat world are Beyond Meat and IMPOSSIBLE Foods. Only one of them has had an IPO (Beyond Meat NASDAQ: BYND). This leaves IMPOSSIBLE Foods as the privately held company (for now), and we have reason to believe it will not stay this way much longer.
As of Monday July 27th, the IMPOSSIBLE Burger is now available at all 503 Trader Joe’s stores across the United States. Additionally, IMPOSSIBLE Foods just announced that the IMPOSSIBLE Burger will be available at select Walmart stores across the country.
“We plan to expand our retail presence 50X in 2020 alone,” said IMPOSSIBLE Foods’ President Dennis Woodside. “And to make the IMPOSSIBLE Burger accessible wherever Americans go grocery shopping.”
