Starting Monday, July 27th, Impossible Burgers will be available at all Trader Joe’s stores across the U.S.

At the start of 2020, only 150 stores in the country had Impossible Burgers. Now, that number has risen to 5,000 stores as Impossible Foods has partnered with Kroger, Wegmans, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, and Safeway to sell their products.

The addition of Trader Joe’s is critical to the company’s plans to expand into the retail sector.

“We plan to expand our retail presence 50X in 2020 alone and to make the Impossible Burger accessible wherever Americans go grocery shopping,” Impossible Foods’ president, Dennis Woodside, said. “We’re particularly excited about the launch of Impossible at Trader Joe’s, a beloved institution with die-hard fans and a company known particularly for its great meat, cheese, and wine selection.”

Since the pandemic began, conventional meat companies have had to shut down and meat industry faces shortages. As a result, plant-based meat companies like Impossible Foods have seen an unprecedented spike in sales. Impossible Foods has also started delivering its burgers directly to consumers to keep up momentum as quarantine continues.
